    Hello. I need your advice on these cascade glass earclips that I bought at a trist shop. They are well bade and all the beads are glassbeads. The shape and style of the larger beads are a bit art deco looking to me but I don't know the age of these. One problem is that I first thought they were marked W Germany which would mean they where made either from 1949 to 1990. But the marks on both looks like N Germany to me?! If I see it right it is the first time I see that. Maybe there is something wrong with my eyesight? Any thoughts on this - not my eyesight but what the marks say :) - and the age of these earclips are welcome.

      Can’t help with the dating, maybe Mary will chime in.
      Love red jewelry though, the beads are really nice!
      My two cents...You are right West Germany began in 1949-1990, but that’s a long stretch to date a piece, or pair. I think these were very popular in the 50’s(?)
    2. Elisabethan Elisabethan, 4 months ago
      Thanks for you answer Ms.ChrystalShip. The 50's is my feeling too...
    3. AnythingObscure AnythingObscure, 4 months ago
      They are beautiful -- I love red jewelry too, even though (as a guy) I'd look even stranger wearing these earrings, than the ones I already wear...? <lol>

      FWIW, I'm reading their marks as 'W GERMANY' too, with the leading edge of the W not as well stamped. Sorry I can't offer any more help...

      AnythingObscure thanks! They are a little too much for me too but I am hoping for some extravagant parties ones corona is over :) I am thinking they might look a bit crazy cool if I put my hear up and wear a black dress with them and no other jewelry. Might be able to pull it off ha ha :)

      Hair not hear :)

      :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) I agree -- crazy cool they would be no doubt -- hope we all can look fwd to a pic "modeling" them one of these days when the world calms back down!! "A little too much" is often *just perfect*, no...?? ;-) ;-) ;-) <lol>
    7. Elisabethan Elisabethan, 4 months ago
      Yes I agree :) Have a nice day/evening where ever you are in the world.
    8. valentino97 valentino97, 4 months ago
      I think it's W Germany too. Very nice!
    9. Elisabethan Elisabethan, 4 months ago
      Ok thank you Valentino. If you all see a w it must be a w :) even if it looks strange to me ha ha. Thanks for your coment Val. So most likely W Germany.

      Dear friends, thanks for your help. I mark this as solved just realized I had missed doing that. :)
