    I just purchased a group lot and this was the reason. I noticed this little guy and how different the back was. It looked really well made. I did a little research and found a couple similar ones that were gold and real stones. So, when I received this I looked at it and saw two very small hallmarks on back. They were hard to read, but I suspect it is gold. My loupe is packed away, but I will eventually get it looked at. Hope you enjoy

      Cool find..

      That is one beautiful mouse MrsT! Looks very well made, could definitely be gold or vermeil, and the eye does look like a real gemstone. Great find

      Adorable indeed!!

      dav2no1, thank you, I thought so too.
    5. vintagelamp vintagelamp, 4 months ago
      Yes, super adorable!

      The back is indeed different, with a trombone clasp! You don’t see these on jewelry pieces made before 1890! I wonder if this is European? In any case, it’s an adorable piece!

      what a cute little guy, love the details both front and back. Wonderful find.
    8. RichmondLori RichmondLori, 4 months ago
      looking at the back I will agree with the fact that there are the two metals working together here. from what I have researched and found about collecting, is that if more than two forms of media / material / crafts are used in a single piece the more valuable the item. Here I can see three to start without seeing the piece live. Very nice post, thank you, got me to come back and look more than once. Lori

      Jenni, your sweet comment is much appreciated. I will get it checked out eventually and hope that it is real, but either way I still think it’s super cute

      Definitely a good find! I think the mark is 750???
      Go find your loupe and get the stones tested :-))
      A charming little critter, so lovely!

      Eileen, thank you, I was thinking it might be European also. Glad you like it
    15. Mrstyndall Mrstyndall, 4 months ago
      Lori, thanks for the info on this regarding the different materials. It really caught my eye. Thanks for the sweet comments

      Kyra, yes, I hope it is 750. I will get it tested eventually. We just moved and will be moving again in a couple months. Thanks for commenting
