    Following Agram post, here is my latest addition to my bressans enamel collection.
    This piece is big, 7.5cm or 3" high.
    The bressans enamels are in pristine condition, I only had to kyratise a small area of the black enamel with white dots border ;-)
    Articulated, base metal gilded and silvered.

      Superb antique locket with gorgeous enamel colors and detail

      Kyra why didn't you post it earlier it's such a fantastic locket. Thanks for your links to the Youtube film about that kind of jewelry and also for your interest and knowledge!

      Marga... It arrived last week :-D

      What a fabulous antique! Thanks for posting these museum worthy objets d'art.
    7. kyratango kyratango, 5 months ago
      Scott, Jenni, thank you for your lovely visit and kind comments!
      Thanks too to the early lovers :-))

      Magnificent little pieces of art, that’s what they are. Intricate, feminine, and lovely above all else. Very similar to Amgram.m’s...both are exquisite!
    9. RichmondLori RichmondLori, 5 months ago
      Beautiful, this one caught my eye immediately, great piece. Lovely and in such good condition for the age, awesome!
    10. PhilDMorris PhilDMorris, 5 months ago
      A lot of pieces from the 1920's have that Paris look of Russian craftsmen and especially women who escaped to paris from Bolshevik ruined Russia to produce this breathtaking art, a true gem !~

      Hi Phil! Thank you for your nice comment, but no, nothing to do with Russian origin :-)

      Plain-air- painter, Eileen, RichmondLori, thank you for your enthusiastic comments!

      Oh oh oh I LOVE this gorgeous piece of antique wearable fine art! That’s the description I use with my husband because it sounds better than “I went out and purchased another piece of old jewelry I won’t wear out but once a year because I’m afraid something will happen to it”. LOL but in all seriousness this took my breath away when I logged on yesterday (the first time in a month) and I wanted to say your eye and your taste are both exquisite! May I borrow both on occasion? :)
    13. Agram.m Agram.m, 5 months ago
      salomeooo of course I fully agree. I hope you admire my Bourg-en Bresse jewelry too. https://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/292951-rare-bourg-en-bresse-antique-enamel-lock?in=user
    14. kyratango kyratango, 5 months ago
      Oohh, Salome, that's a bunch of compliments!
      Thank you!!! Of course, my jewellery could be borrowed by cautious, enthusiastic lovers of it ;-)))
      Condition is... Not leaving my sight :-D
      I consider my pieces as wearables art too, better than Hubby's bikes accumulation! Lol.
    15. Elisabethan Elisabethan, 5 months ago
      O this is really beautiful! I haven't been on cw for some time so there are lots of goodies for the eye to explore, this being one of them.
    16. kyratango kyratango, 5 months ago
      Thank you Elizabethan! Always happy to see you on CW :-)
      I'm less here too but always happy to catch in with news ;-))
    17. Manikin Manikin, 5 months ago
      Wow I missed this beauty ! Looks like something for royalty . xo
    18. kyratango kyratango, 5 months ago
      Aww, Mani, you are the Queen of kindness!
      Thank you!!! Big XO. :-))

      Hi Kyra!!! This is spectacular!!! I sure wish I knew how to solder! Now it's just too hard to see. Although I don't mind so much the head piece you can wear, it's just a bit difficult to wear for a long period of time for me. Wish I were brave enough to get laser surgery done, but NO! xoxo
    20. Celiene Celiene, 2 months ago
      Is the back glass? Do you put hair in it? Or anything a wearer would like?
    21. kyratango kyratango, 2 months ago
      Ooh Shareurpassion, sorry I missed your comment... :-\
      I didn't make any soldering on it! Only a very little touch up on a tiny area lacking white dots enamel.
      Sorry too for your sight issues, be brave and do the laser if it can improve!!!
    22. kyratango kyratango, 2 months ago
      Celiene, yes, there is a compartment on back with a hinged glass! And, no, I won't put anything in it :-D
      I'm used to keep what is inside antique pieces unless it is full of mold, I consider it is respect to beloved memories of someone ;-)
