  1. Thank you IVAN, I wouldn't have thought about this, it makes prefect sense. This is why I love Collector Weekly.
  2. Hi Rick, looking at this Helen Holmes brooch it does have fly, butterfly look to it. I've never realized until you mentioned it. In real life it's a stunning piece, I would love to get more of her wor...
  3. Thank you kyra, I have another set, they are no were near as nice as these, maybe I should say that they are different. People have their own sense of style.
  4. Yes kyra, it's a beauty, very similar to the citrine brooch I posted a year ago. The link is above on a comment to Gillian. As alway, I really appreciate you popping round.
  5. Thank you katherinescollections, I really appreciate your comment.
  6. Thank you kyra, they are probably my best pieces of Instone, but that's only my opinion.
  7. Sorry *got*
  8. Hi katherinescollections, my Mexican friend said whoever got the white dolls had to throw a party. Mexicans love a good party. From Christmas, New Year and The day of the Kings thereafter there is n...

  11. Thank you Scott, Judy and Karen I really appreciate you all popping by and leaving your wonderful comments.
  12. Hi Karen, I really appreciate your comment, I said I wasn't going to be posting any Bernard Instone for a while but I can't help myself. To be honest most of my pieces of jewellery are Bernard Instone...
  13. Thank you Judy. The combination of the 2 colours does work well together, both are bright and one colour doesn't out do the other. Yet again Judy thanks for passing by.
  14. Hi Scott, yes the amethyst are pretty amazing. I've been looking on my postings I didn't realize how many amethyst pieces I have, I suppose that tells me I like Amethyst a lot lol.
  15. Many thanks martika, I'm glad you like them. :-)
  16. Hi Judy, thanks for your comment, it's a added bonus when things come in their original fitted case.
  17. Thank you Scott, it's great finding different things to post from Bernard Instone. These spoons are in fantastic shape for their age.
  18. Yes Karen, there's no doubt in my mind this is Bernard Instone. May be you can get some advise from kyra on how to do some restoration work.
  19. Hi Manikin, it's always nice to see you, and thank you for your lovely comment.
  20. Hi Gillian, thank you for your comment, I've added a link above which is a very similar brooch. I haven't forgotten that you woul...

  40. Hi grendel, I do consider myself being very fortunate, the price was right and thankfully there was no bidding war. I very much appreciate your comments.
  41. Your welcome Bonnie :-)
  42. Yep your absolutely correct Bonnie :-)
  43. This is a similar style and similar markings, so I think your brooch could be David Andersen. Good look ...
  44. Definitely in the same style as Jorma Laine. As you say it's difficult to read the mark but I would say it's In the Finish style, it's very stylish.
  45. I would think this brooch is Georgian, pretty painting.
  46. Hi grendel, I can't say on here, but it was a true bargain, the starting price was quite high but not outrageously for the piece, infact very low. I was lucky I knew a little bit about Shakudo, most p...
  47. Hi Jewel1900, I know Shakudo is extremely expensive, I was very lucky with this one, I watched it for days. The people who sold the necklace didn't realize it was Shakudo, It wasn't in their write up....
  48. I would love to find out the maker Gillian, I asked a friend I know, he didn't think it was the Gaskins, shame that's what I was hoping for. I'll just have to keep researching or hopefully someone wil...
  49. Thanks Gillian, it's the loveliest of my Gladys and Charles Mumford pieces, I was extremely lucky to add it to my collection. Thank you for your comment.
  50. Sooty and sweep, lol, I loved them when I was a kid.
