    I'm stumped bu this one. My initial thoughts was Artificers Guild, but I don't think the construction is right. It looks English, but gold coloured metal is odd. I'll be interested to see what others say.

    Really beautiful Kyra, Art Nouveau, the workmanship is wonderful. I wouldn't have a clue of the maker, does it have any marks!

    Hi Jewels! I shared it with you on my secret Pinterest, asking for your opinion!
    Don't have it by hands yet, freshly bought :-), I think the odd color is effect from the computer/camera.
    Finish details (and moonstones quality) are too well done to be only basic metal!
    As you can tell, I'm completely excited about getting it in my hands ;-D

    Peasejean, no marks at all as seller said... I had to ask for pictures of the back, but was almost sure it was high quality from the fits poor pics, ;-)

    Thank you both for your interest and loving, dear friends !

    I'd be excited t0o. It may have a gold wash on it. A gold wash over gold is not uncommon. I'd be very surprised if it was a base metal. I think it is missing the bale? If it has a bale it might be easier to identify the maker. It's good though. I think you've done very well & look forward to seeing your photos.

    PS, hubby is at Paris markets right now. I was just on Facetime looking at the treasures. Very exciting!!

    For the bale, I will check when I get it, from pics the attached rings on top of pendant seem soldered, not open...
    Lucky hubby, Ha! Was thinking he will visit the quirky lady in Serpette ;-)
    Hope he will come back with treasure for you both !
  7. Jewels1900 Jewels1900, 3 years ago
    He has. She was same as usual so he wandered off. He asked if she had any Jugendstil and she told him to look - you've seen her cabinets. He said she had some lovely things but many damaged, it makes it too hard for him to buy. It's a shame. But he has found treasure ...
  8. kyratango kyratango, 3 years ago
    I know her cabinets... She is sooo special! I was able to buy some bargains from her when she knew almost nothing 20 years ago... Now I just visit her to talk, lol.

    How come?
  10. kyratango kyratango, 3 years ago
    Say there is an issue with the stone and prefer to have it checked before selling!
  11. valentino97 valentino97, 3 years ago
    That's not nice. Do you think seller saw CW conversations?
  12. kyratango kyratango, 3 years ago
    Says will send invoice again! Was afraid moonstone is man made...
    Up date : just paid again, will mail it! Yepeee
  13. kyratango kyratango, 3 years ago
    Oops deleted my comment saying seller cancelled order :-/

    Will be interested to know more once you receive it. I like those old style bolt rings, they are a "tell" that items have good age.
  15. kyratango kyratango, 3 years ago
    DrFluffy and Valentino, thanks for interest and love, now all is ok (till I receive it, hoping so!).
    Kiwipaul, so right! Findings, solders, mounts are clues for the age and quality.
    I will post when it will arrive.
