    Huffstutler
    (23 items)

    Just received this brooch and will take another of the back but wanted to get this out for hopeful identification?

    It is a chalk white milk glass (not a high gloss finish), with 13 clear crystals. I happen to notice that one of the prongs was never pushed down on a white stone. (handmade). The back is unmarked and has a bar pin with a center solder attachment.

    I find plenty of Milk Glass jewelry but have not seen an all cabochon one. All I know is that it came from a high end estate in California and an elderly woman.

    Thanks.

      MsCrystal, not sure what you mean by "designers to the left of the screen," could you clarify what you are describing? I have no such list on the left of my screen. Thanks!

      Ms.CrystalShip, I too am at a loss about the "left" of the screen as I don't see a link either on my computer? But do see that Kramer did use cabochons in several pieces but aren't all of their jewelry signed? My piece is unsigned.

      OK, got you on the menu layers, which i don't go through since I click directly on my posts for replies :-) Kramer though did have a bracelet that looked more complimentary than the one you found... here is the photo link I have and won't add the photo above to keep from confusing the question about the brooch:

      Ms.CrystalShip , Finally go to and saw what you are seeing, which is exactly the same style bracelet that I posted a link to! When you go to the Kramer page, it shows the auctions by default and did not switch to the "show and tell" screen and then, you had the poster's screen name spelled wrong. I saw nutsabotas6 responding.

      Ms.CrystalShip, Thanks for the research and looking forward to your pieces. Looking around, I ran across another piece that screamed that it was made by the same company which also had cabochon stones but in a 3 petal clover open design. Had the same rough looking back and also unsigned.

      Sorry about all of that "looking" in my last post. I just got up and I am not "looking" that great right now :-)

      "The Diamond Look" by Kramer, I may even have some of these in a bag of clear rhinestone necklaces and earrings - need to find it and take a look.

      Suggestion? I see many sites saying to store them in bags. Some say in mylar plastic bags. Many say storing them in cardboard or wood is a no-no because of the moisture and fumes issues with them. How do you suggest storing 400 brooches in a small area on a budget? Open for suggestions.
