For as long as I can remember I have been interested in in old things and things that carry a history. I still remember when I, as a young child, saved some old bookFor as long as I can remember I have been interested in in old things and things that carry a history. I still remember when I, as a young child, saved some old books from being thrown away after my grandparents had died and the house was being sold. I kept the books hidden and safe, as my secret treasure, for meny years. Today I´m glad I was so determined, the oldest book is from 1748. At the age of 7 I already had a strong feeling that old things needs to be treated with respect. I guess it all started there, the interest in finding and caring for old or special things. The collector soul in me was born. Recently I found a growing interest in silver jewelry. I tought I was drawn to simple elegant designs but I´m learning more about my taste everyday. I´m humble about this whole thing as I find it hard to call myself a collector, I just recently realized I have this condition. I don´t know a lot, but I do know what I like and I also like research. I´m looking forward to share and to read about other peoples pieces and collections. (Read more)

  1. Thanks Eileen! That is good to know, rondelles. I like these, wear them when I want earrings that stands out :). These makes people talk and I get the chance to explain my fashination and interest for...
  2. Thanks Kyratango. I wish you the same!
  3. .... And both beautiful but as a collector I would have gone after the enamel brooch.... I love these dramatic looking brooches with a "meaning". It's really very nice.
  4. Two wonderful antique brooches! The left one I would say is the oldest. I am quite sure it's victorian probably before 1900, from the style and composition. It seems to be a violet which was the symbo...
  5. Beautiful! Happy new year!
  6. Nice brooch. The stone has some swirls that you don't see in amber. The swirls, color and the semitransparent makes me quite sure it's carnelian.
  7. Let me see the sticker with Franck on it. What does it look like?
  8. Amazing. This is really a hat with a soul. Beautiful condition and unusual color. Is it your size so you can wear it to a fancy party?
  9. And to all, thanks for loving my post!

  23. Thanks guys for loving my post! I am happy I could help you jbingham :)! I have posted some more info in your post about the name Ratia. Happy new year to you as well and all friends on CW.
  24. Enjoy your fantastic bowl :)
  25. Great I am happy I could help! I saw your nice respons in my poast. You said you had more things and a box marked Ratia? Ristomatti Ratia (born 1941) is a Finnish designer and son of Armi Ratia, Marim...

  32. http://webuygoldandsilver.com/hollycraft/
  33. Can you take the "lid" of? Looks like a container for needles.
  34. It is nice but it looks like someone tryed to imitate a Iitala Marimekko piece.
  35. Beautiful necklace! I think you are spot on that it's 1950's. The beads are called "aurora borealis" (nothern light) Most beautiful.
  36. You can find the company online www.sargadelos.com. Probably a fairly new plate.
  37. Hard to tell from photos. The best "made to look like the real thing" glass jewelry came from czeckoslovakia. Today it's seen as great quality jewelry even if it's glass. Beautiful necklace eather way.
  38. Yes I agree, like that beautiful "art noveau" like metall detail on your trunk.
  39. Beautiful and a dramatic effect. Love that it is "only" dandelions :) Wonderful!
  40. It will happen.... :)
  41. You are most welcome! Glad it was somewhat interesting. I think it's is nice that they put some extra effort on details. This could easily just have been plain. But someone has put some extra time on ...
  42. Your welcome. I often sneek in and have a look at your trunks. It's not my field but they interest me. I find them most beautiful and it is interesting to think about where they have travelled. I can ...
  43. Thanks Trunk man. I just posted an old chest for you. Did you see it? Hope you find it interesting.
  44. It looks like a chest from Sweden or Norway. Beautiful.
  45. This is so beautiful! And valuable!
