    Bought yesterday, arrived at noon!

    Yes, another French "bargain", make an offer, free insured shipping!
    Yepeee :-)

    12cm wide.
    10cm high.

    Napoleon III era, around 1850.

    Unmarked silver, immaculate turtle shell prongs, pink foiled pastes with maybe 2 or 3 replaced. This kind of black enamel with black dots is rather fragile, this piece has only a few bruises...

    Pic #3 before kyratisation, pic #4 after completing white dots.

    Usually described as Georgian, French, I rather see those pieces with eagle's or boar's head hallmark which situe them not earlier than 1838!

      The necklace you found looks like a perfect match Kyra. The comb is very special indeed. Love the pink.

      Nutsaboutas6 needs some deleting of double posts. It's so easy to do.
