    I don't know what happened that brought all the Jewelry out, but as long as I can get it for a good price, I'll be showing it off! :^D
    This selection has pieces from the late 1800's, to the 1970's, and again all of them I really like.
    The watch fobs are sterling, and 12k gold filled, the sterling from the 1870s, and the gold filled not later then the 1920's I'm pretty sure.
    There are no marks on the silver choker, but what a interesting piece, that would look great on! The little Jelly Belly Cat pendent, is by OBCO, and a cute one, and the bar brooch is marked on the back, but I can't make it out, CAP BR, I think, but what a beauty!
    The green and crystal rhinestone brooch, and clip earrings, the seller tried to call a set, until I pointed out that the earrings were blue, and the price dropped! I think the brooch is "something else" though! B^O
    I got the Egyptian Revival "Tut" brooch at a Thrift Store, but the pin latch is a push tube, the same as the Fishes brooch, which dates them both to about 1890's, Tut is silver plate, and the Fishes look to be gold filled.
    When I got the little Pomegranate tipped (salt spoon?) it was tarnished black, and after I cleaned and polished it the little red rhinestones in the split of the Pomegranate, just popped, and had to show them, so I added the sterling Teaspoon, to show better. It's marked with a Crown, Lion, and i or t or person? then JR in an octagon then "*"star "+"cross in a shield. Here's some information about the sterling silver Teaspoon that IVAN49 gave me:
    The spoon was made by Joseph Rodgers & Sons,Norfolk Street, Sheffield,UK in 1901 (date letter i for 1901), crown for Sheffield Assay office and lion passant for sterling standard.
    The mark on the right is journeyman`s mark. Such a mark is the identifying mark of the actual workman who made the piece and who was employed by the "maker" (sponsor) whose mark JR must appear by law.

    Thank you for looking, all comments are welcome, and always happy to try and answer any questions, or give a closer look! :^)

      Beautiful assortment of antique jewelry Bill, and very nicely set out! These are really great, the green rhinestone brooch is a star, then I love that kitty cat, fishes & the pomegranate salt spoon, Egyptian brooch etc. Excellent post

      Very Nice looking Collection Bill! I really like the looks of the fishes brooch!

      You both are quick with the love, and comments Jenni and Izenglish, thank you both so much! :^D

      Jenni, always such nice words, and I'm always happy to hear them, thanks! :^)

      Izenglish, thank you Sir, I think I'll call you Mr. Know IT All, because you're right on top of it, I strive for that! :^D I am wanting to find more about the Fishes brooch, after I found how old it was, it got me very interested! :^)

      Bill, what an awesome collection. All very nice, but the pomegranate spoon really caught my eye. Have not seen a spoon like that before.
    5. billretirecoll billretirecoll, 1 year ago
      Thank you Mrstyndall, I hadn't either, and just calling it a salt spoon, but when I got it and showed it to my wife, we talked about it possibly being used to get the Pomegranate seeds out of it, but really have no information on it! :^)
    6. billretirecoll billretirecoll, 1 year ago
      Hey Kevin it's always nice to have you stop by and give some love, thank you! :^)
    7. Mrstyndall Mrstyndall, 1 year ago
      Bill, that’s a neat thought. I like pomegranates-when I lived in Greece, we had a pomegranate tree outside our house.
    8. billretirecoll billretirecoll, 1 year ago
      I like them too Mrstyndall, my parents had a large Flowering Pomegranate, beautiful blossoms but no fruit. My wife's patents had a regular Pomegranate tree/bush, and every fall we still get some off it, because the property is still owned by her brother. They can be messy, but fun for children, of all ages! :^)

      I love the Tut brooch and 2 fishes and that fab green rhinestone brooch! And the choker, and the jelly belly kitty :-) And the spoons too.

      Gotta start going back to swap meets....
      With treasures like this out there...
      Beautiful finds Bill and old too!
      The salt spoon is very interesting...
      The Lovely emerald brooch is wonderful, with multi- prongs one never has to worry about losing a stone. Glad these pieces found their way to a collector who appreciates their history!

      It sounds like a Love Fest Mary! :^D Thank you so much! :^)

      Yes they're a good place to find lots of things, and then you can make them your treasures! :^D Thanks for your very nice comment Eileen(thanks for reminding me)(the reason I forget your name all the time, is I had an aunt, and have a second cousin, named Eileen, but will remember now!) I hope! :^)

      Thank you all for taking a look, and giving some love,
      Kevin
      Mary
      Judy
      and Eileen! Always appreciated! :^)

      You bought some great things, Bill~! I've never seen a Pomegranate spoon like that one. The choker is beautiful and may still turn out to be silver.
    13. billretirecoll billretirecoll, 1 year ago

      The choker is silver, I have one, made in Cambodia, given to me by a Cambodian friend of my father, looong time ago!
