    I can hear Tassiedevil and Efesgirl saying:
    "Oohhh, no! Again..."

    It seems this mystery is endless!

    These 13 pieces were collected in 3 months, and there were many more for sale I couldn't win.
    CRAZY, don't you think?

    I'm posting them as a group, it is even more striking ;-)

    In pic #3 are the ones marked 900 (except the big sunburst without other mark than the urn, even under the removable pin)

    In pic #4 are those marked 925.

    Some pieces suffered from yellowing or greenish paste stones, halas, I can't remedy to that issue :-(

    Some natural stones in two of them: the star pendant has a turquoise, and the oval brooch on right has a nice moonstone!

    Hoping you won't be fed up with such overload, LOL!

      What a cute collection! I love the moon and animal head pin, very unusual. And is the empty oval a picture frame?
    2. Efesgirl Efesgirl, 5 years ago
      How on Earth can there be SOOOOOO many beautiful pieces with that "Blankety-blank-blank" mark and NOTHING to find on the web????

      "Bangs head against wall in frustration".
    4. Efesgirl Efesgirl, 5 years ago
      Pascale, I even asked on an antiques and collector's page where there are tons of knowledgeable jewelry folks and NOBODY there could tell me anything other than that the mark has been seen/researched before with zero results.

      Quantumphysica, thanks for being so quick to comment and love! The animal in the bar brooch with a moon is a fox, fox hunting related I think, so perhaps connection with Great Britain???
      The empty oval is a locket brooch for photo or hair lock :-)

      Bonnie, we are at least two bumped heads ;-))
      Really strange there is no records of this mark.......... Thanks for helping and loving!

      AdeleC, TubeAmp and Ken, thank you so much for your loves!!!

      Pics are great, enough bling for a king.
    7. TassieDevil TassieDevil, 5 years ago
      OMG Pascale!!! how fabulous to get so many in such a short time!!!! I love them all of course and never get tired of looking at them even if they do drive us to distraction with the mystery mark lol!!
      Just a strange thing that has remember that silver site where you posted for info on the mark......and you asked if I was the Tassie Devil on there, which I wasn't.......well I just idly was going to have a look there the other day and found out that I, ( Tassie Devil) had been permanently banned from the site as well as my IP address!!!!
      Really weird, not that I am worried about it, but just can't understand how this had happened!!!!

      Hehe, Phil, I hope you didn't get blind from the bling ;-)) Thanks to the specialist you are for the compliment about photos!

      Ms.Crystalship, thank you for your comment and love! The wolf is actually a fox :-)

      Judy! Thanks for taking part in the mystery mark!
      For your id having been usurpated, as it seems, it is really frightening! Are you sure nobody had physical access to your computer?
      I deeply hope you'll never be banished here!

      Lentilka! Thankssss!

      Valentino, hi! Very happy to see you enjoy the hoard, thank you ;-)
      I only encountered pieces by this maker dating from 1880's to 1910's, nothing in Art Deco style! All pieces have beautifully cut and sparkling paste stones, the maker was seemingly a specialist in paste jewelry on 900 or 925 silver.

      Warm collective thanks to the 18 hoard lovers!

      Pascale, I love all your paste "mystery maker" pieces very much and hope to find at least one for my collection some day:-)
      Regarding being barred from that site, I am the only one to use my computer and I am always extremely careful and wary of anything out of the ordinary that should pop up in emails etc and have 2 anti virus scans running on it too. Considering it wasn't me in the first place, I have to wonder how they have banned my IP address instead of the original person's, if that makes sense!! And I wonder how they got mine anyway.......too confusing for me !!

      I reckon I would have to do or say something really bad to be barred from CW and that is not likely to happen, (although I do have to bite my tongue sometimes lol) unless of course my account there gets hacked, heaven forbid!!
      Thanks for your concern, I appreciate that but don't you worry, I'm sure everything will be ok :)))

      Gary! Thanks for the song, and finding it is appropriate ;-))
      I explored all sites about maker's marks... scrolled down hundreds pages on the Internet... All my books have nothing in them too :-/
      The new profile is done using Photofunia! Yep, cool!

      Judy, your case is another mystery... I can't understand why someone would usurpate an identity for this ridiculous use Ô_ô......
      I'm sure you are far more well behaved than I towards some posts... ;-)
    12. TassieDevil TassieDevil, 5 years ago
      Lol Pascale, and what a great profile picture!! Love it:-)
    13. TassieDevil TassieDevil, 5 years ago
      Thanks Gary, appreciate your kind comment:-)

      Perhaps a step to identify the mysterious maker!
      I found old advertisements images of "THE PARISIAN DIAMOND COMPANY"
      lots of similar models!!!
      They worked in imitation diamonds and pearls, in the right time frame :-D
      Still no infos on their makers mark...
