Well I found these 3 Silver Brooches, together at the Flea Market, and the Antique brass Brooch and the porcelean Birds, Butterflies, and Bugs Condiment Holder?, at the same place that I found the Duncan Miller Punch Cups, from my previous post. The Brass Brooch is Victorian I think, and unmarked, but it looks like it had red painted flowers, and green leaves. The Condiment Holder, also unmarked, but I think about the same age. The Hoop single clip-on Earring was in the same box, but no other found! :^( It's marked (C) Bereal or Berebl, looks like that, no other marks, but tarnished black like silver, or plate, and enameled black on the front. The Marcasite Lizard Brooch, was the reason for the post, because antiquerose, just posted one similar! Thanks Rose! :^D The Lizard is marked 925 on the underside belly, and it has ruby red crystal? eyes, and is 2" x 3/4". The Owl Brooch is 1 3/8" x 3/4", it has a blue enameled front, and the back is marked 925. The larger tri-metal Parrot Brooch is 1 7/8" x 1 1/2", it's marked in a circle TAXICO MEXICO, around the sides, meeting at 925 on the bottom of it, with TCP in the center. Also a METALES, also what looks like a 3 in a shield. On the front, the Parrot has copper wings, a brass beak, with copper tip, and the silver head and body has inlaid turquoise, outlining feathers, it stands on a silver branch.
Thank you for looking, all comments welcome! :^)
