  1. Great link, PatSea!
  2. Ha! Learnt something with Albertinas :-)
  3. :-)) perfect!
  4. Left on your door step? Kind of a (naughty) fairy gift! LOL
  5. Jwendell is right, for wine. You may see this one, similar decor: http://www.ebay.com/itm/381031031934
  6. Wow! It's a beauty!
  7. Pics of the bottom?
  8. You can upload up to 4 pics... One of the bottom may help others to make it out!
  9. Black onyx?
  10. Yep, cheers! (Drinking good wines with old friends just now!)
  11. A mason in great attire! Must be rare! You ask for Elizabeth age... On which pic? My guess are 5, 20 and 14! Am I right? ;-)
  12. PIERRE BEX items were made in France from 1969 until the end of the 80'. Each piece is handmade in France from original stampings, the jewellery is then silverplated with an antic finish, nickel ...
  13. Looks like Pierre Bex work! https://www.etsy.com/listing/70337252/vintage-pierre-bex-enamel-and-rhinestone
  14. Idcloisonne is right, I think. But please, don't clean it harshly!!! a slight rubbing with a silver cloth will be enough to clean without removing patina.
  15. GOOD CATCH ! After research: Charles Allan GILBERT, (September 3, 1873 – April 20, 1929), better known as C. Allan Gilbert, was a prominent American illustrator. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cha...
  16. Right! They are very easy to dicern, due to the shape!
  17. Thanks trunkman for your visit and love! :-)
  18. Yep, good ones! For the hooks I'm in love with these that I use: http://www.ebay.com/itm/OUR-EXCLUSIVE-15mm-Extra-Fancy-INTERCHANGEABLE-Earring-Wires-Vermeil-925-Silver-/380447263834?pt=Fashion_Jewe...
  19. Love all in it! And spiderweb turquoise....
  20. Niiiice! Would call it Belle époque, for me Art Nouveau is more curvy "noodle" style. But don't know if there is an official denomination :-)
  21. Or Albert watch chains. http://www.ebay.co.uk/gds/Vintage-Watch-Chain-Buying-Guide-/10000000177317425/g.html Great collection! You are as bitten as I am by this stuff ;-) Make fantastic necklace w...
  22. Oooh! She is absolutely beautiful! Worth restoration in my opinion.
  23. He is glorious! Nice addition to your collection!
  24. Thanks Lourdes and Austrohungaro!
  25. thanks Lourdes and Austrohungaro :))
  26. Thank you Peasejean!
  27. Thank you so much pops! :-)
  28. You don't give the size... It seems to be a draining part of an ice bucket, if size is correct for this use.
  29. Uuh... A little red hot pin poke even if resin will less damage it than removing the silver cap! A very thin needle in a discreet location will say.
  30. Ooooh.... I always loved his designs and spirit. RIP. Valentino! You are GORGEOUS, a wonderful memory pic!
  31. http://www.castelarts.com/img/fancybox/obj-36.jpg
  32. Dieppe ivory? http://www.castelarts.com/objets.html #36
  33. Do doubt ivory even only from pics! But Phil is right about Black Forest, don't feel it from there.
  34. Vetraio got it, it is the same Ô..ô
  35. Wooaahhh! Incredible find and beautiful in any aspect, love the workmanship and patina. Bravo!!!
  36. Thank you so much, Julie! :-))
  37. Not my domain, but I love this vibrant purple!
  38. A négligé! Beautiful! Jewels1900, the link is home page of Tadema, can't see the necklace...
  39. Beautiful! Love it!!!
  40. Thanks Lourdes, Austrohungaro and Sean :-))
  41. I think impossible to id. Maker ! Just enjoy...
  42. So, could be jade!
  43. Don't be sorry Plantlust! Your comment (I didn't remember mood stones!) is very interesting, it could be a mood brooch for a masochist, very very rare :-D Thank you for posting :-) Thanks Tom for y...
  44. Fish bowl, now flower pot :-) love the colors!
  45. Good looking! For the $, your other bargains compensate ;-D
  46. Love her, so fresh!
  47. Love it too! Welcome to CW :-)
  48. Around mid 20th. For the stones, try a scratch test in discreet area with a steel needle, if white line left: soft stone, if dark line: stone harder than steel :-)
  49. The stone (more likely serpentine) parts are chinese archer's thumb rings, decor is chinese too, so... chinese, made for export! https://www.google.fr/search?redir_esc=&client=tablet-android-samsung&...
  50. Hehe! Look This one : https://www.expertissim.com/sculptures-et-objets/david-james-gilhooly-cheef-luzy-white-sculpture-o12162219.html?utm_campaign=2014.10.17_fr_FR-Newsletter-Anecdotes&utm_source=exp...
