    Another one!

    I place it just before 1900, with the Art Nouveau whiplash motif, but symetrical when pure Art Nouveau wasn't.

    Sparkling pastes, as usual with this maker.

    The "emerald" paste, mounted in a gold collet setting, has a lovely colour, but is very shattered...

    Width 4.5cm or 1.3/4".

    Mystery goes on! :-D

      "Runs out of the room, screaming."


      Regardless of the condition of the "emerald", the brooch is beautiful.
    2. Manikin Manikin, 6 years ago
      OHHHH that is just stunning ! Can you replace stone or do you leave it ? You always find such high quality jewelry. xo
    3. pebble pebble, 6 years ago
      Not "the mark" again!! My husband thinks it looks like a candle, worth a search?
    4. kyratango kyratango, 6 years ago
      I know, Bonnie this is driving you CRAZYYYY! ;-))

      Mani, thank you so much!
      I had a look for 8×6mm octagon cut pastes/cz, colour is not so fine, so for the moment, I'll leave it as is!
    5. kyratango kyratango, 6 years ago
      Pebble, thanks! And thanks to your hubby too :-)
      I'll search for it.
    6. Caperkid, 6 years ago
      Beautiful piece for sure. What to do lol good luck :)
    7. martika martika, 6 years ago
      Exquisite as always !!! :)
    8. lentilka11, 6 years ago
      WANT. IT.
    9. pebble pebble, 6 years ago
      I'm also wondering if it's a date mark rather than a makers mark...? You think they're all from around a similar time period, if I remember correctly!

      This is gorgeous! I don't even know how the stone would get as it is but it doesn't really matter. I was just thinking of Mary's comment if it could tell a story...haha It would STILL be talking!!! ;)

      I also have to tell you that once again, you were right, the enamel on that ring is original. So grateful that I did not try and do anything to it!!! Look at the new pics I put up. They are much better.
    12. bijoucaillouvintage bijoucaillouvintage, 6 years ago
      How beautiful! Those pieces actually do tell their story because we are listening to what they have to say. Keep up the great work!
    13. TassieDevil TassieDevil, 6 years ago
      Simply beautiful of course Pascale!!! Love it!!!

      You certainly have the eye, miss k. Lovexo
    15. kyratango kyratango, 6 years ago
      Martika, Caperkid, Lentilka, thank you!

      Pebble, no luck with the candle... didn't found the mark in my Tardy book, so I don't think is is part of a hallmark...
    16. kyratango kyratango, 6 years ago
      Val, it is so strange only the "emerald" is scuffed...
      Bijou, Sue, Ooh, I would so much love hearing the stories the brooch could tell :-D
    17. kyratango kyratango, 6 years ago
      Celiene, I struggled for weeks to reactivate my 925-1000 account without success!
      I just create a new one with another E-mail, and post my question here:

      Judy, Phil, so many thanks for your compliment and appreciation, love back to you!

      Huge collective thanks to all of you, 23 mystery's lovers ;-D
    19. OneGoodFind OneGoodFind, 6 years ago
      You have very lovely jewelry. Just an FYI, I spend too much time thinking I can find something that you experts can't due to location and all. I'm pretty sure we all love a mystery as much as a find. :)
      Beautiful Kyra!!
    20. kyratango kyratango, 6 years ago
      OGF, thank you for appreciating my jewelry!
      May I ask what is your location? It is always stunning to realise all the travels our pieces may have done :-)
      And yes, a good mystery and search is a great part of the joy of a find !
    21. TassieDevil TassieDevil, 6 years ago
      Kyra ,It is great you have got into the silver forum page again.....hope you can get some responses!! I have noticed the admin people have edited your you get notified when they do that?
    22. kyratango kyratango, 6 years ago
      Hi Judy! I saw they edited my post... saying I gave link to a commercial site!!! I just answered CW show and tell wasn't commercial...

      Hoping to get some answers...
      Someone commented on Pinterest, saying the monkeys were from Portugal, a bunch now in colored diamonds, and bunnies similar too... I still not found them ;-)
    23. kiwipaul kiwipaul, 6 years ago
      Hi Kyra, the 925-1000 people can be very pedantic about your links, I had some queries and they wouldn't let me even mention several sites I wanted to use as examples, let alone link back to them.

      If I had to guess I'd say your Amphora/Urn mark is probably German and maybe a Pforzheim maker. If so Fritz Falk author of "Jugendstil-Schmuck aus Pforzheim" could be someone to contact. Could also be worth sending a query to Schmuckmuseum Pforzheim (I think Fritz Falk was a former curator/director of the museum).

      Good luck!

      Oooh, kiwipaul, good information, I hope it helps! Pascale, I just saw what they wrote on the silver forum, good grief, they won't let you post links to CW because CW posts links to eBay ON THEIR ARTICLES NOT ON S&T, sheeeeeesh! :/

      Just lovely ..'-) love the new profile ..
    26. kyratango kyratango, 6 years ago
      Hehe, thank you Gary, I love your J.N. too ;-)))))
    27. kyratango kyratango, 6 years ago
      Paul, thank you! My guess is same as yours!
      I sent an E-mail to the Pforzheim museum, but no answer so far... Think I'll have a second try...
      I couldn't find contact infos for Fritz Falk either :-/
    28. kyratango kyratango, 6 years ago
      Oooh, thank you Number5! ;-)

      Benny's eyes changed since... they are now amber with a touch of green :-D
