      Thanks Val!!!
    3. Efesgirl Efesgirl, 4 years ago
      The brooch is Victorian. Very nice! I do love that little elephant, too...

      Bonnie, I was thinking that it was a victorian hinge......but then was the 925 used in that time??? would possibly be american made do you think!! Certainly not British.... what do you think?
    5. racer4four racer4four, 4 years ago
      Lovely brooch!! Great price too.

      The elephant is probably Chinese made but she's fantastic! Great work in her.
    6. jscott0363 jscott0363, 4 years ago
      They're both quite beautiful and unique. Wonderful finds Judy!!
    7. TassieDevil TassieDevil, 4 years ago
      Thanks Karen, glad you like them.....I was just so excited to be able to buy something!!!! Doesn't happen very often, especially at markets!!
    8. TassieDevil TassieDevil, 4 years ago
      Thank you Scott for the lovely comment!!!
    9. kyratango kyratango, 4 years ago
      Both lovely finds!!!
      The brooch is immaculate:-)
      That 925 is continental, not English. But the style is identical!
    10. magician1962 magician1962, 4 years ago
      Both very nice finds, I really love the elephant.
    11. TassieDevil TassieDevil, 4 years ago
      Thanks Pascale, I almost missed the brooch....it was upside down on the table and it was only the tiny size that mostly caught my eye!

      Continental 925 silver in a victorian brooch setting!!! Sounds good to me and thanks Bonnie & Pascale for your help and Karen for help with the elephant too.
    12. TassieDevil TassieDevil, 4 years ago
      Aww, thank you Magician...It is a bit cute isn't it!!!
    13. PostCardCollector PostCardCollector, 4 years ago
      What a sweet looking person you are. Lots of love went into the making of your cute face!!! Bet you get lots of hugs--and give them too.
      My mom got me a butterfly ring similar to what you have and I cherished it always...somehow when we moved to AZ. it got lost in the "shuffle". It was nice seeing one like it again!
    14. Gillian, 4 years ago
      Very beautiful brooch indeed.
      Mystified why you would say "certainly not British......"?

      PCC , thank you very much! Such a lovely compliment!! I do appreciate it!

      Really glad you like this brooch and happy that you have lovely memories of your mother from seeing this!! Thank you!
    17. TassieDevil TassieDevil, 4 years ago
      Hello Gillian, thank you, I think it is beautiful too!!

      I was actually referring to the "925" silver mark when I said "not British"......and Kyra has confirmed that this particular 925 mark is continental.

      There sure are some really beautiful ones in those links aren't there!!!
    18. TassieDevil TassieDevil, 4 years ago
