Another of today's flea market finds!!! SOLID SILVER with what I think is either jet or onyx. I've never seen a bracelet like this and don't know what the silver marks mean - yet. This bracelet is very well made.
Less than $2.50 paid.
One of the pieces of jet/onyx has a hairline crack, but no matter. I can have that piece removed. This bracelet stays with me!

Silvermarks: Made in Poland, beginning from 1986. Made in (V) W-r-o-c-h-a-w. If I don't put spaces between the letters, the town name ends up with a ? mark in it....

    A "P"?? Prague? Paris? Poland? Uhm.....well......er.....TELL me what you know, OAS! LOL!!
  2. Efesgirl Efesgirl, 2 years ago
    Pittsburg?

    LMAO @OAS! How do you know this stuff, anyway? Can I take you with me to the flea markets? :-) I will have to see if there is somewhere to look to see if I can find out how old this bracelet is....or do you know THAT, too? *luvs ya*

    OAS - is this 1931 possibly made in Warsaw?
  5. Efesgirl Efesgirl, 2 years ago
    OAS - Two old bats knocking around in the flea markets...!!! This is the first piece of Polish silver I've had, and I'm glad it's a great one! I nearly walked away from the stall after picking through lots of rubbish in the jewelry box, then spotted this bracelet. I'm sure whoever put it in there thought it was base metal. because of the color. I take it that the initials belong to the silversmith?

    OAS - I'm scary all by myself..... I would love to know what the retail price was at the time. I have never seen a bracelet with sterling silver cameos. I saw the color and that little bitty round tag and it was all over!! :-) I can only imagine how many people picked through that stuff and never gave a second look to this bracelet.

    Oh no, not another one?!??! Ya killing me, Bonnie, ya killing me!! :)) lol, nice eye. :)

    OAS, if I could trail along with the two of you, oh boy, what a great journey that would be, yes indeed. Oh and I had actually figured that out about you a long while back, autodidact, what a rare and wonderful talent you possess! :)

    Bless! :) Good night my dear friend, will chat you tomorrow, God willing and the creek don't rise. :)

    Hey there, OAS and kat - today was a good day for me. I went to three thrift shops and came away with some NICE clothes (cheap!) and a funny old Dutch jar with a lid. Not even sure if it's ceramic or earthenware. No idea what it's use was and can't find poopie on the net...I've asked my Dutch friends on FB. Maybe some Golden Oldies will recognize it.

    I hope you day has been great so far!

    I've been very unproductive today, I hope you both better use of your time than me. And I would so love an ice cream float right now. :)

    Ha! OAS, dust and dog's hair... Everywhere in hidden places in my home too !
    My trick when something rattles or disfunction is to hit it behind on the right... Don't ask why, but it usually works, from my car lights to my tv, by my heater, lol!
  12. katherinescollections katherinescollections, 2 years ago
    Well there you go, OAS, kyratango has given you some very sound advice! I use that remedy all the time, but I didn't know it was only supposed to be applied to the right side!

    Dust and dog hair, mine is cobwebs and cat hair!! :))
  13. katherinescollections katherinescollections, 2 years ago
    Spotless? What is this thing of which you speak??

    I hope you are all having a good day, my friends. :)

    Our Bonnie is no doubt off buying more treasure for pennies. :(
  14. katherinescollections katherinescollections, 2 years ago
    Ha ha, I remember once when my house was spotless. It was before we moved in! :))

    Bonnie is off buying the Royal Jewels for a nickel, lol. :)

    And how are you today, my friend?
  15. katherinescollections katherinescollections, 2 years ago
    I swear she's going to buy the Hope Diamond for a buck one day! :))

    I'm glad if you're good. Take it easy, my friend, and take your time, there's no hurry. :)

    Did you give the fridge the kyra treatment? Is it still making those strange noises? I sometimes think there's nothing more troublesome than an iffy refrigerator.

    All is hot and muggy, which means a lot of iced lemonade, which means many many trips to the bathroom day and night, lol. I think my bladder is aging faster than the rest of me!

    (((((hugs you back harder))))) :)

    Take care of you, my dear friend xxxxx chat soon :)

    Katherine - I am going to steal your comment. "I remember when my house was spotless, it was before I moved in!" LOVE and sadly, true.
