    LOUMANAL
    (430 items)

    This is the only Jewelry item that I have of my Grandmother who passed away in the 1950's at 84 years old. I suppose that she would have been wearing this as a young girl/lady in the late 1800's-early 1900's. I have always wondered what material it was made of (french ivory-plastics?), especially the filigreed flower basket in the center. It is marked "MADE IN FRANCE" on the back and measures 1 1/2" square. I was told that she wore it in the front of her buttoned-up collar and that she looked quite regal. Thanks everyone for your perusal & help, RER (LOUMANAL)

      Is the white part shiny like mother of pearl or matte?
    4. LOUMANAL LOUMANAL, 9 years ago
      It is smooth like early plastics...catalin/french ivory but it is inlaid with pearl-like decorations. RER (LOUMANAL

      Sort of piqué (for piqué look at: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/86120-elaborated-domed-tortoise-brooch-and-pho )inlaid with mother of pearl or perhaps even silver? This kind of clasp was made between 1890 and 1920's. That's all I could tell you for the time being.

      Thank you Agram.m! Your Turtoise shell Pique Jewelry is wonderful. I agree that the treatment on this brooch is the same type of "pique" treatment. I appreciate your help very much!! BOB
