  1. I see what you mean with the rubbing.
  2. Cogito, Pilkington has always made tiles. The marks depend on the period. Earlier pieces were marked with a painted designers & date marks, later bits with the rose mark. My tile has Pilkington wri...
  3. I often pick up a bit of Austro Hungarian thinking it's arts & crafts. Very pretty.
  4. Maybe Austro Hungarian?
  5. Looks completely good for Victorian pearl & garnet to me. Also, 15ct would be consistent with the period. Very nice, especially with that original bale.
  6. Edwardian style, deco materials. This style of chain is often seen on German jewellery made for the English market circa 1900. But I've only ever seen them in silver & gold. Platinum did not become...
  7. Hi Contigo. These may be from the 1970's. A few companies made nouveau style tube-lined designs including Pilkingtons. They tend to have looser designs & more browns & whites than those from the 19...
  8. They overlay with gold to get the 3D look & feel. It's an imitation of the original Japanese mixed metal work jewellery that was available at the time. Most commonly you see silver overlaid with yel...
  9. No, this is not a mourning style. There was a very perscribed dress code for mourning during this period including jewellery. Lots of Victorian brooches had a photo or hair locket on the reverse...
  10. Hi Jean, this looks like it might have held a locket closure in the back.
  11. Good. It will be interesting to see what you come up with.
  12. Hi Jean. That makes sense. I've seen a few victorian brooches converted to pendants recently. They look good, like yours!
  13. Hi Jean, me again. You have a lovely bit of Victorian Ascetic Movement here. The heron is a common theme. It looks like some rose gold overlay on the flower & butterfly. How big is it? Most commo...
  14. Cool Jean. I'll be interested in how you go. Can you ask what, if any, relationship he had with Shiptons? They produced a range of jewellery very similar to his and which has often been misattr...
  15. Hey Jean, I've noticed that if you look at the home page of the site, you'll find a contact email address. http://www.allen-family-tree.co.uk You could ask them where the designs came from and may...
  16. Yours is not quite the same as the pearl one. You can see gold curls between the pearls in the design. The design of yours is a closed mount, more similar to the silver & marcasite ring pictured. ...
  17. Ta da - http://www.allen-family-tree.co.uk/bernard3.html Check the drawing of the 4 opal rings,, you'll find an opal & pearl version of yours.
  18. Thanks kyrantago. Hoping to be in Paris May/June next year.
  19. Hi Jean, I can tell you that your ring is quite rare. I've never seen a gold Instone ring before, or with opal & diamonds. It looks like a later piece for Instone. I'm much more familiar with his ...
  20. No worries Tony. The red & green will defiantly be blood stone. (Be careful & check these, sometimes the old glue dries up & they fall out). The 3 little stones are probably foiled glasses or small...
  21. You never know, you might get lucky. I picked up a pair of big King Blackies for $10 each at a second hand bookstore in New Zealand & a couple of King designed theatre programs with the paper covers...
  22. Hi Tony. Your brooch is late a late Victorian Scottish brooch. The crown refers to Queen Victoria. She started the Scottish jewellery trend. She spent a lot of time at Balmoral castle. They would...
  23. Some of the best Glasgow artists designed covers for Blackie including Jessie M King & Talwin Morris. They are quire good fun to find & collect.
  24. Wozer, that Pin's going to turn AnneLanders stomach. Check out that animal claw!
  25. Hi kyrantango. I'm not entirely certain but I think the Prince of Wales hair designs in your brooches is a love token. Not mourning. I've never really gotten into the 'language' of hair jewellery. ...
  26. Google charivari & you'll find all sorts of interesting beasties. Fascinating. Thanks for posting.
  27. Ha! Weasel. Fancy that. http://www.rubylane.com/item/1046071-char000269/Antique-Amulet-Predator-Teeth-Pendant
  28. I've seen these little mounted jaws before in Germany. But I've no idea what animal they came from. Also, the Germans made lots of deer teeth jewellery. The English made jewellery from grouse's ...
  29. I started collecting Victorian jewellery but most of it was 'reinvested' as I switched to Arts & Crafts jewellery. But I collect all Arts & Crafts objects, my jewellery is one part of a larger collec...
  30. Hi period_gems. The problem was that someone pinned my photos on their Pintrest board. Because of the way they can pin they missed my message asking for my photos not to be reproduced. To give the ...
  31. Hi arts&crafts fan. Just checking that you received my email?
  32. Super artsandcraftsfans. Chat soon.
  33. Hi BelleEqoque. I think you have a great period Scandi guard there. I've seen later, shorter, Scandi bead chains but nothing as nice as this. Because I like to wear big pendants I'm very fond of gu...
  34. Not a senior moment artsandcrafts fan. It doesn't work as I assumed it would. I've asked a friend to set me up an email address without my name in it so I can post it for you. In the meantime, you ...
  35. Hi BelleEqoque, looks a little danish to me. Looks very nice to wear.
  36. Hi artsandcraftsfan. I'd love to chat arts & crafts & hear your ideas. Zip up to the top of this page & you'll see a little email envelope icon under the photos which you can use to make contact. ...
  37. Looks like that poor little chap has been dipped. Hate dipping.
  38. Hi inky, you know this is a Koloman Moser design? Known as the crackle jug. I've never seen one in colour, usually just in clear crackle. We have one, use it for lemonade on hot days.
  39. There is a second, later, Charles Horner mark which is a C & H overlaid in gothic script. Sometimes it is seen without a hallmark (just the makers mark). But this isn't it. Can't help any more othe...
  40. This one is made by Thomas L Mott. A company that made all sorts of butterfly wing jewellery.
  41. Hi inky. I'm pretty confident your bowls are english. Have a look at a dealer online called Mike Weedon. He has a good selection of english glass & well categorised. You'll find a selection of obj...
  42. Beautiful, beautiful. So elegant & restrained. This is why I love Powell glass. The silver top though, I didn't think Powell made them. I thought they went out to makers like Walker & Hall etc.
  43. I have a couple of these in my collection & they have the engraved numbers under the stopper which I believe is indicative of Powell. I love a bit of that optical swirl.
  44. Thanks ttomtucker. I didn't know that Bradley & Hubbard made dragonfly lights. Yours is a lovely example. But I think its a little different from mine, mainly the wings & tail. Love these drag...
  45. Thanks kyratango. The frog candlestick is by Blanche Vulliamy who made great beasties for Baron (British potter).
  46. Ha! There you go. I though same thing; feels Scandi but looks American. Can't get much closer! Nice work kyrantango (& Rocrofter).
  47. These are rather nice & very well marked with maker & designer. I'll have a look in my Schmuck book with all the marks later & see if I can see it. That B mark looks familiar.
  48. BTW period_gems, I believe they also have Henry Wilson's design books. Worth a look.
  49. Ohhh excitement.
  50. Early GJ marks has the J going through the G. I don't think your drawing is not quite right. Sorry, can't be more help than that.
  51. See more
