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. Happy birthday Mary!!!! Lots of love to you dear friend.
  2. Mary Mary Mary!!!! I so LOVE these! Can imagine the sound and the glow from these. They are smashing!!
  3. Wonderful post, love it. What a cool necklace you found Mary! Green is green = beautiful.
  4. Nice finds! My favourite is the angel brooch. Looks victorian but I would need to see the back of it to have a better chance to be sure and to tell what material it is. Very nice indeed.
  5. Very nice! What a movement in the horse. Great brooch.
  6. No I read your answer wrong, northern california is what you wrote! :)
  7. Ms.ChrystalShip that is nice to learn! So it looks like North Carolina? I would probably like it there then. This is in Sweden where I live. I love the "kantareller" that is what we call them. There a...
  8. Yes, lynx roycroftbooksfromme. Ho2cultcha Thanks, I am sorry I missed your coment that you made one year ago.
  9. Lots of love and happy collectors moments to you Vetraio, Newfld, Kyratango, Pglenn, Valentino and Shareurpassion for your answers.
  10. Yes Shareurpassion I wondered why I didn't think of the back with the fabric but I guess I thought that if it had been that old the bands would look even more used, I mean that meny years of use, perf...
  11. And sorry for saying that you all "guessed" some of you might have seen similar pieces before even if I have not :) :)
  12. And I must say a few of you where spot on! I was surpriced that they used such bright colors like that blue. It looks more modern than other paste jewelry I have seen.
  13. Thanks for guessing and writing your nice coments:) I saw this at the jewelry exibition at the nordic museum of Stockholm this summer. They show old and contemporary jewelry in an interesting mix. My...
  14. Fantastic "Willy Wonka" looking design.
  15. They are so fantastic! Congrats to you :)
  16. Love the tartan pattern!
  17. Most beautiful!!! Looks very high quality!
  18. Looks like moss agate.
  19. I am afraid I can't help you. But it is a wonderful necklace! What bright colors! Great find.
  20. What a fantastic brooch! Beautiful and fun. Love it!
  21. Very nice! Always like coro.
  22. Very nice color!
  23. Very beautiful!
  24. Beautiful! Would love to see the back and edge of it.
  25. I can't help you on greek or roman mythology even if I wish I could. Interesting suggestions and information from cameosleuth here! I can imagine a collector of cameos have had a lot of studying into ...
  26. I love that silver overlay on the wonderful green color. Very beautiful!
  27. I ment Schreger lines :)
  28. Ivory will show schreger marks. I can't tell from your photos. https://www.realorrepro.com/article/Ivory-genuine-fake--confusing
  29. Very beautiful bracelet. It looks early 20th century european to me but could be revival. Very nice bracelet!
  30. There seem to be a cinection to corn and whiskey if this is indeed austrian :) https://www.ebay.com/itm/Antique-Vienna-Austria-Porcelain-Whiskey-Jug-Count-Thun-Factory-Corn-Fall-Maze-/362018749793
  31. Ha ha yes :) wurst example :) But what is Austria know for - tamales? No. Wurst? Yes :)
  32. I am not at all sure but to my scandinavian eyes this looks like root work. I imagine that tecnique has been used in lots of places. Very nice basket nevertheless.
  33. Either I'm blind as a bat or crazy :) but to me it looks like a sausage (wurst). My guess is some sort of souvenir that has something to do with alcohol (snaps) or wurst or both. This is not the same ...
  34. Beautiful! Both beautiful and practical. I have this idea that I should make a chandalier out of my fishing rods. But I need to be able to unfasten them when I want to go fishing.
  35. Very nice set and beautiful colors!
  36. Very beautiful and I agree with what has been said about the style. The cabochon looks like nice satin glass.
  37. Thankyou Shareurpassion for nice coments and inputs! I thought about the nailpolish but I think it is not. With polish on it it comes of with the yellow as when I rub the rest of the bangle :) Tha...
  38. Yes thankyou Keramikos! :)
  39. Interesting that the Oneida company that was mentioned here by Roycroftbooksfromme is now described in this interesting CW article https://www.collectorsweekly.com/
  40. Makes me think of this: https://commons.m.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:First_Official_Tennis_Tournament_on_US_soil,_Staten_Island_Cricket_Club,_1880.jpg
  41. Very nice brooch! I think your idea is probably right Newfld :)
  42. Hello MY dear friend :). I have emailed you more photos. Thanks!
  43. Thanks Valentino, they are very nice. But they don't have the inside that I am tolkning about. The goldish glittery inside that makes me question mine.
  44. Ok, thanks. Have you seen the glittersurface on the inside? Don't know if it shows well in photos. Have you seen that before on bakelite Val? :)
  45. Thanks Pencilneckedgeek for your coment even if I don't get the last part of it :) - no it is not an earring. Thanks Valentino! I also think that bangles can be nice even if it is not bakelite, bu...
  46. You are most welcome! :)
  47. Thanks Broochman! I don't know if that is sure. It makes me wonder because the inside is something you always look at to make sure it has the right stripy type of pattern that you would see on a swirl...
  48. https://auctionet.com/sv/661026-stolar-ett-par-j46-poul-m-volther-fdb-danmark-formgivna-1956 So it seem they are still being made. Yours looks to be from the 1950's-1960's. You could email them and...
