  24. My pleasure, Elisabethan! If you ever get an answer from the Bengel Museum, let me know... Best.
  25. Hi Elisabethan! Your necklace is beautiful and I'm pretty sure it is by Bengel. Its stucture is very reminiscent of Bengel's work. The coral beads are probably made of glass. A simple test consists ...

  27. Yes, it usually is shiny, except if it shows heavy signs of wear...
  28. Thanks for this new comment, Elisabethan! Hamish, with a little training, you'll manage to distinguish bakelite from other plastics. Bakelite is often marbled and it has a specific shine. It also mak...

  38. Thanks again, Agram.m! :)
  39. Thank you so much for all these precisions, Agram.m ! The brooch is unsigned, but there is a losange-shaped hallmark at the back (indicating this is silver?). I'll take more pictures soon to show you....
  40. Very interesting, thank you! Indeed, this lady definitely evokes Saint Fabiola, although the latter traditionally wears a red veil.
