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)

  10. My referencebook is "Sachs a main".
  11. What a wonderful miser's purse you have! I have referencebook "Sacs a man" by Judit Miller. Unfortunately I don't understand French byt the timeline I understand and it puts this type of purse/bag a...

  23. Thanks MANIKIN :)
  24. Thanks PhilDMorris. Here in Sweden we don't really use the term "Sterling". We say silver and then the pieces are stamped with the fineness. We have 830 but also 925. From what I have red the 830 is u...
