  1. Phil, your storage must be an Ali Baba cave, full of treasures... your lamp is certainly one!
  2. Kiwipaul, any idea?
  3. Wow! The turquoise's setting is also quite georgian (as in your writing the foiled moonstone part) She certainly studied the construction of antique jewels. The London Buses theory is a very good one...
  4. Thanks again, Kiwipaul! Thank you Phil for your kind comment, Many thanks too, BelleEpoque, from pics of the back and closure, I was certain it was a nice thing ;-) Many thanks, HeirloomAngel for y...
  5. Kiwipaul, arts and craft is a relatively new area for me, I can identify the period and authenticity, but a lot of makers are out of my knowledge. Thank you so much for id ! I'm delighted with th...

  14. Amazing it was burried! Perhaps filled with gold!
  15. http://m.ebay.com/itm/271510876470?nav=SEARCH This listing gives weight per spoon, and marks. I doubt your's are gold, but check weight and compare with these!
  16. http://www.replacements.com/webquote/TISBAMG.htm Your's are demi tasse spoons. Any marking?
  17. Don, "you're the one that I love!" ;-))

  20. Laisse un fb négatif! C'est terrible, mais il est magnifique. I don't buy glass (for the moment, lol) but would worry a lot too... Did Verlys make fishes lamp like that? I remember my grand parents...
  21. Thanks a lot upstatenycollector for your poetic comment ;-) I could stay lost in these colors for hours and dream... Thanks wp too, your comment is very much appreciated! And.... Thanks to the 33 l...
  22. What a nice way of displaying your collection! Love all :-)
  23. LOL, love the ex-wife's new boyfriend part! Of course, you are right, molded resin! You could suggest him the red hot pin poke (I'm famous for it!)... Dont't forget to specify that this test hat to ...
  24. Rather 20th century. Here is a very useful link for dating brooches: http://www.realorrepro.com/article/Dating-brooch-fasteners The coral color, true red, speaks mediterranean to me, Spain or Ita...
  25. Oops. Think later, not thin thin later :)
  26. Hi Pease! Thin it is a bit later due to thin pin and articulation of it. For my eye, there are only crystal opals (almost transparent, you could read through them). How lucky to go to Sri Lanka! I ...
  27. Beautiful! For finding an old frame, I can say from personnal experience that oval things are nearly impossible to match... I carried for years a paper with my lonely things to mount stamped on it! ...
  28. He is very beautiful! Most are set with moonstones, Google image for scorpion moonstone antique brooch. I think they come from Colombo in Ceylon (now Sri Lanka), I Saw some in Colombo airport shops...

  41. I will have a look and contact her...
  42. Yep, PatSea is right! A watch ticking is as a beating heart, specially when a family memory ;-)
  43. Woaah, your great Grandfather's! This one is the oldest, the naturalistic etching of the case is near art nouveau style but more classical. I would say around 1890! curious of watch enthousiasts thou...
  44. Fantastic locomotive/train decor and general style from period 30' ! Your Grandfather had good taste, enjoy his treasure :-)
  45. Ha, just read ALL description :-D So it is gold filled 12 karats!
  46. Lovely family memory! Period is 20', bracelet is filigree style, perhaps goldplated or gold filled.
  47. At this time, they were nearly custom made ... Jewelers made a case and adapted a movement. Gently open it and see if there is a name on the movement, which could even be round shaped and would come e...
