    Hello, Collectors Weekly community! I found this beautiful thing at a thrift store some time ago. I have no idea what it is. Does anyone have a clue? It's stamped CZECHO SLOVAKIA. Extremely ornate metalwork with a variety of inset faceted and cabochon stones. I believe them to be stones, but they may be glass. And I believe it to be from around 1919 or so, based on the way CZECHO SLOVAKIA is written. I was thinking that it may be a ring holder. It's too short to be a cup holder, unless the cups were tiny demitasse or tea cups. It stands 5.625" high; the base and top are both 2.75" wide. It weighs 5 ounces. I have searched and searched online and can't find one single thing that even comes close to this. Your thoughts, please? Thank you!

      looks like Gablonz from one of the Neiger brothers, because i think the red cabuchon glass its carnelian gemstone , just a long shot

      Thank you! After following your lead and researching Neiger Brothers, it certainly does appear to be Neiger Brothers! I believe it to be a jewelry stand.

      Sorry, I don't see the connection to the Neiger brothers. Please share your research. Thank you, always trying to learn more and haven't seen these types of items during the 15 years I've been looking for more about their work.

      , i am not gifted , i just run immense art databases, that,s all i do
      and to be honest that, s what the most auctioneers do , sometimes they just attribute , because they are afraid of law suits or lazy
      i cant appraise from a photo , its just an educated guess, a database from heritage is 1.700.000 entries

      Valentino97, based on information from another CW member, I looked at every site I could find that referenced Neiger Brothers. Based off of what I found, the age, workmanship and design of this object, fit the Neiger Brothers design profile. I have never seen anything like it before, but it fits their style and typical elements used, and I believe it is jewelry-related. When you look at other antique or vintage jewelry stands, this object fits the basic visual form, even though I didn't find even the first Czech or Bohemian jewelry stand. In your opinion, what do you think this is?
