  1. Woo Hoo! More circa 1900 jewels. I've also been collecting but not posting as much. Lovely brooch, what makes you think its Scottish?
  2. I'd say German. Between 1900 & 1920. That blue enamel is very common on German jewellery produced during this time. Usually more geometric in design than yours. Search jugendstil blue enamel & yo...
  3. Between 1900 & 1920's. American slag glass. May have belonged to a larger chandelier. Looks for a maker or design number cast into the metalwork.
  4. Is it mother of pearl or plastic? Looks very similar to Lea Stein designs.
  5. PS, it's not necessarily a morning locket. There was a whole language of hair. You could have your hair professionally made up into a variety of styles & pieces or ladies could buy guides on how to ...
  6. The buckle on Victorian jewellery (rings, brooches, lockets etc) is actually a garter. Victoria was the head of the Order of the Garter and like she started so many jewellery fashions (Scottish, Jet ...
  7. I think it's a compact. It seems to have a space for powder, a mirror & possibly a space for a small lipstick?
  8. PS, the stone is calchedony.
  9. Fresh mango always goes down quickly. I'll squeeze in the rest of the info while he's feeding himself egg & toast. So the quality, style (medieval), use of bead & rope work & mixed metals (while ...
  10. Hi Sham. That's a cracker of a brooch you've got there. Defiantly Arts & Crafts and good quality. Worth noting, though, is that the pin has been added after the brooch was made which means it mig...
  11. You're brooch is in the style of a sash pin. I think it's likely to be base metal with gilt or gold tone. The citrine coloured stone is glass. They were very popular in America. Not so much in o...
  12. Hi Jean. I spied this one too. It's defiantly a Nossitor piece. I've seen them with this fan-like structure. I think is was one of a pair of clips.
  13. Thanks for the info.
  14. Hi, your brooch is Norwegian and by a designer call Maruis Hammer circa 1900. The design is based on a Norwegian marriage brooch.
  15. This pin is lovely. Does it have any makers marks on the back?
  16. Nice one Kyra. Never seen a Lily before.
  17. Hi Gina, your hutch dates from the 20's. It has some elements of Arts & Crafts (hinges, shape & a-semmitry), also some Edwardian (spindles) and the geometric diamonds & carving above them are typical...
  18. I think most Shakudo that was made for export ware was made circa 1870 - 1890. The Samuri as a class were banned in 1871 which co-incided with the western interest in Asian, particularly Japanese, ae...
  19. This is a cracker Jean.
  20. Hi Jean, I thought you might have bought this. I had a little punt myself but hubby was in the UK so I'd already spent more than I have! I think it's Mumfords for sure.
  21. Interesting, I've never seen a plique piece like this with Egyptian marks. It's so like the earlier German pieces style wise but I guess the enamel colours are quite different.
  22. That is a cracker story.
  23. By the 30's or 40's arts & crafts/mission was way out of fashion. And I think this is an original piece, not a modern reproduction. Quater sawn oak vas very popular, the majority of arts & craft f...
  24. Sorry Kyra. Don't think this is a Varley one.
  25. Arts & Crafts, mission style. Circa 1910.
  26. 1920's, Egyptian revival. It's possible the hieroglyphics don't say anything but are just decoration. These come in silver & silver gilt. I'm not sure what the red is, never seen this before. ...
  27. Same, same. Also explains why Z&W always looks similar to AH but not quite. Who knows why I know that!
  28. You need an Asian collectables expert who may be able to read the mark & possibly identify a maker. They may also be able to tell you what purpose this piece was made for & whether it was always mean...
  29. Yep, mark may have been fittings. Screw backs is consistent with Z & W. Drop in on one of Jean's posts & get her to take a look. I'm sure she posted something about Z & W not so long ago. Austro...
  30. https://www.rubylane.com/item/591985-001714/English-Arts-Crafts-Silver-Citrine-Garnet scroll down ... http://www.paisleys.mahoonas.co.za/index.htm Zoltan & White usually mark their stuff though...
  31. Zoltan & White. Thats why they look AH but not quite. Also explains hearts. Do a Google search & see what you can find.
  32. Hi Snod. Yours is an unusual brooch because it's signed. Pieces made for export were not usually signed like yours. It's possible this started it's life as something made for the Japanese market & ...
  33. Hi Tassie, I think these are Austro Hungarian. The hearts are unusual though.
  34. PS, I don't think it's a button because it's domed. I think a button would more likely have a flat back.
  35. Looks classic Austro Hungarian to me.
  36. & your dresser is actually a wash stand. There would have been a big jug & basin + all your toiletries on it. That's why it has a marble top. End tables are pot cupboards. Yep, you put your cham...
  37. Hi, your set is German Art Nouveau, called Jugendstil. Bedroom & dining sets were very popular.
  38. Poor Tassie.
  39. Karen, you're in luck. I got out my jewels today to consider something Paul recently told me so I dug out my German ring & some pieces of Shipton which I'll post for you so keep an eye out. Also m...
  40. Ohh Kyra. That Shipton reference is a find. I think that answers the question as to why these brooches are so similar but slightly different. Looking at the new Shipton version, it is has a roll cl...
  41. Hi Karen, the Germans were the powerhouse of art jewellery during this period. In addition to the schools & artist colonies who taught and made hand-made jewellery, they also had one of the larger je...
  42. Hi Karen, the brown stone is actually orange carnelian. Kyra will know for sure. The brooch with a single berry is german. I know because I have a lovely little ring with a domed lapis in it by t...
  43. Cool. That makes it easy. I can be a bit random with so many little boys zipping around my place. Let me know.
  44. Hi Paul, I was just reading that Martin article on Knox you directed me to & noticed a gold ring pictured that has a very similar leaf to your pendant. The angle of the photo of the ring is diffe...
  45. Hi Karen. The matching bracelet I have is marked Shipton & Co. Are you going to the next wentworth park markets? I might be able to bring some examples for you to have a look at.
  46. Hi Racer, these rings, brooches, bracelets etc are by Shipton & Co. They are often misattributed to Instone but those that are signed are always signed for Shipton not Instone. There appears to be a...
  47. Hi Tassie, agree with Paul, probably from the 40's. Not Wager but still very nice work. I've seen this heart shaped leaf before but don't know who made it.
  48. Hi Jean, the vietnamese have a saying, 'same same but different'. I'm pretty sure this one is Liberty too. You just need some nice some nice Liberty chains to hang them from.
  49. Hi Betty, this is defiantly an Albertina (ladies watch chain). Also I think it's English. I've seen those square spacers on gold & silver Abertinas before. It may have originally had the ball...
  50. There you go Tassie, the Aussie thinks they are kiwi & the kiwi thinks they are Aussie. I recall looking at something quite similar in Auckland a few years ago. I will be interested in anything Pa...
