    These were all recent finds, but really I wanted to show the antique Lingerie Pin, there's also a Trifari Owl Head Brooch, an Ice Follies Ice Skate Brooch, a small Peacock Cover Compact, an Enameled Copper Dish, and an iridescent turquoise and gold Porcelain Cabinet Vase.
    The one small 1 5/8" x 1/8" slightly curved antique Lingerie Pin(normally in pairs) was tested as gold, and looks to have small glass stones, or pearls, turquoise, and a small jade center stone, but I can't tell for sure. I think it's from the Victorian era. It's unmarked.
    The Trifari gold colored Owl Head Brooch is marked on the back and it's 1 1/4"dia, It has turquoise glass eyes with small set rhinestones all around each eye. The Ice Follies Ice Skates Brooch, is white enamel with red enamel laces, and a plastic inset ICE FOLLIES on the side, and is made of silver metal. It has a pin back and could also be worn as a pendant. It's unmarked. The small compact 2"dia x 3/8" with two Peacocks on the cover, look to be lacquered over a painted embossed metal, that's attached to the brass colored metal trifold case with mirror, and powder, and is unmarked. The triangular clear over gold leaf enameled Hammered Copper Dish, is 5 3/4" point to point, with a slight radius to the sides, the black enameled back is marked with a gold TRO9, or TR 09. Last is the iridescent turquoise Cabinet Vase, its 4 3/4"h x 2 3/4" across the gold leaf colored handles, a 1 1/4" opening, and 1 1/2"across the base. It's marked with A.B.C. in gold, and an under glaze W in a covered jar, ink stamp, and lettering under, in 2 lines ?????D in, C???Vakia. It has 4 numbers in the porcelain that I can't make out.
    I have a link to a similar Lingerie Pin, that I'll put in comments! :^D

    Thank you for looking, all comments welcome! :^)

      Hey Thomas, thanks for stopping by, and giving some love! :^)
    2. Newfld Newfld, 3 years ago
      Great collection Bill, I really love that pretty peacock compact & Trifari owl
    3. Ms.CrystalShip Ms.CrystalShip, 3 years ago
      Wow, I'm afraid I'm going to have to meet up with you to go to these swap meets :)
      The treaures you find Bill!
      I have never heard of a "Lingerie Pin", this I will have to research!
      Since it is gold, I can't see the maker using fake stones so most likely you have turquoise, jade & pearls... How fun!
      I adore that beautiful vase, the iridescence makes the color so phenomenal..
      And a Trifari brooch! What a great Sunday you had, my friend!!
    4. billretirecoll billretirecoll, 3 years ago
      Thank you so much Eileen, I can't remember who on CW posted the tiny Bar Brooches, but that's when I found out that they are actually Lingerie Pins, and lots were very pretty, even though they're hidden under clothing, nice for the wearer, and maybe, someone else! :^D The vase looks like it was a blank, that was decorated somewhere other, then the place it was made, maybe early 1900's. The Trifari Owl Head Brooch, has a little wear around the eyes, but still very nice, and not easy to see anyway.
      I told you before Eileen, any time you get up to the Bay Area, you're welcome to join me on the hunt at the Flea! I'd be very happy to show you around, and I might even let you get to something, before me! :^)

      Hi Jenni, and thank you! :^D I thought that there would have been a makers mark on the Peacock Compact, but no. It is very pretty though! I liked the Trifari Owl too . . . I guess that must be why I bought it! :^)
    6. billretirecoll billretirecoll, 3 years ago

      and Kevin(kwqd), its very much appreciated! :^)

      Thank you Mary, for your very nice comment! :^D

      Oh keramikos, I do too! The shape, and the gold and copper combination, is great! Thank you! :^D

      I want to thank you all for your time, stopping by for a look, and loving what you saw, Mary, keramikos, and Pete, it's always appreciated! :^)

      I want to go shopping with you too! Sweet treasures Bill :)
    10. billretirecoll billretirecoll, 3 years ago
      Thank you #1 Mary, well I'd love you to join me! You know what, you could stop by and pick up Eileen on your way up, and we could have a shopping spree at the Flea! A Saturday, and Sunday marathon! :^D Might even be fun to stop up in Napa Valley Wine Country, and Collect some Wine in the afternoon, after the Flea! Just a thought! :^D

      I'm very happy to have you all stop by and check out some more of my Finds! Thank you for that, and the love that you gave,
      my #1 Mary
      and Judy, I really do appreciate it! :^)

      Thanks to the both of you Mike, and Mrstyndall, for stopping by to check out these, and for the love that you gave for them, it mean a lot to me! :^)

      Would love to see the bottom of the vase. It could be Czechoslovakian - certainly has the same last few letters. It doesn't particularly look Czechoslovakian but you never know!
    13. billretirecoll billretirecoll, 3 years ago
      I believe it is Gillian, there was a lot of Lusterware that came from Czechoslovakia, I haven't looked it up in one of my Czechoslovakian Pottery Books yet, I'll add a photo of the bottom! :^D

      Thank you for the love, worthit2, and maryh, I appreciate it! :^)
    14. billretirecoll billretirecoll, 3 years ago
      Ok Gillian, if you look at the letters, it seems not to add up to Czechoslovakia, more like Czech-Vakia, but it was stamped over numbers that protrude from the bottom so the lettering didn't come out, very good! :^)
    15. billretirecoll billretirecoll, 3 years ago
      I found the mark in my Czechoslovakian Pottery Book "Czeching"Out America
      The covered pot with W inside, and under in 2 lines CZECHO - then SLOVAKIA, and the Vase is 1261 on page 134 of the October 1999 The Glass Press, Inc
      The one in the Book has a different Luster color, with a design on it but is the same shape and size. The Book lists it as P3801 vase, yellow luster, black, bird silhouette, 6 1/4" high
      All Good! Thanks Gillian for asking about this Czechoslovakian Vase! Now we know! :^)
    16. billretirecoll billretirecoll, 3 years ago
      Except mine is just 4 3/4" high, so a little smaller size of the same Vase! :^)
    17. billretirecoll billretirecoll, 3 years ago
      Here's a little larger one then the Vase in the Book, but again same shape, on an Etsy post:

      It has the same bottom mark also! :^)
