  1. Thanks so much Paul. Unfortunately I missed it. Am currently in London. Yellow shapphire was Rhodes favourite stone. Dorothy recorded it in the Powerhose archives.
  2. Kyra, you've got me excited about the Colot discovery. I've found some more jewels by her with the ginkgo leaf. I had a good look at all my jewels. 2 rings are unmarked. One ring & bangle are marked D...
  3. Thanks Agate, these rings often have glass in them. I think that's the only one in this group of rings but I have others with glass or pastes.
  4. Oh yeah, love that bracelet. What a great find, thanks very much!
  5. And BTW, I've been looking for Duncan's 1st volume for ages.
  6. Thanks Kyra! What a great eye you have. Interestingly I realised when I looked at the rings & brooch side by side, the ginkgo leaf on the bottom ring is the same as the ginkgo leaf on the brooch. ...
  7. If you have a look at my old post with peacocks you'll see a dumont ginkgo leaf bangle.
  8. It's just a guess. I love the Dumont pieces with the pearls & ginko leaves and it just reminds me of that. These pieces do come up, so it's possible that we can find some more info over time.
  9. This one is tricky, but I'm leaning towards French, transitioning from Nouveau to Deco. Firstly, I think the drop at the bottom is not original. It doesn't fit. Also, I think the glass jewels...
  10. Hi Racer, I've added a photo of the backs for you. The citrine drop is the same on the front as the back (including stones). You can see the pin that holds the stone in the mount on the carnelian dr...
  11. Hi Kyra, I have a few fish. That's why I'm always on the lookout for seaweed!
  12. Oh yes Jean, there are fakes. There's an English company who make them. Horner always marked their pieces as far as I know. I have an awesome gorgan fish pendant and 2 brooches but that's it when...
  13. The third one could be Sandheim but it's not a design or construction that I recognise. She was prolific. I'll go to Kempton and also the markets in Paris.
  14. Here's another lovely one -
  15. Hi Jean, it is the British Morcroft - here's nice article on roundels -
  16. Hi Racer, the mount is double sided. So same design on each side & soldered together down the side. That's why the photos are kinda wonky. They don't sit flat on a surface.
  17. Hi Racer, it's carnelian. A few of the other pieces I have are amber. Sandheim was one of the few arts & crafts jewellers who used amber.
  18. Hi racer, the lapis has moonstones, the jadeite has foiled (pink) moonstones and (I think) a peridot in the bale. The amber is lonely by itself.
  19. Hi Jean, MBCo hit its price highs with the Horner. Both have always been expensive which is why I don't have much MBCo in my collection (and less Horner as I don't rate it in comparison). I've al...
  20. Hi Jean, is that a victorian collar I can spy on your arts & crafts drop? The third drop is interesting, I've only seen it once before & I suspect it's the same one. And I'm sorry, I don't know wh...
  21. Ahh Jean, I forgot you have a grape & leaf design by Sandheim as well. If you do a comparison, you can see that the Saindheim is better quality.
  22. Hi Jean, I don't think this is by Sandheim. I have a grape & leaf drop by her, it is pretty dynamic. The grape & leaf mount is big, it overlaps the drop on the sides so the stone swings a little wit...
  23. Here's an example with the double edged point - I'm still thinking, though, that Paul ...
  24. Here's an example of a Wager piece with long wirework on the side -
  25. Paul has a good point. I've not noticed this either. But this brooch does have a few Wager tells including two which we've not noted before. The first is that double edged point. I've not really no...
  26. I believe it's a Wager.
  27. Can you post a photo of the back?
  29. I have a confident attribution for us -
  30. I don't know if it's Pierre Bex or not. I've never seen this exact design signed or attributed. I don't know much about Pierre Bex but I do know this brooch is very similar in theme & construction o...
  31. Pierre Bex?
  32. Pierre Bex?
  33. I have a Sasha doll. Still have original gingham dress & shoes but the undies are too small. I nicked them from my sisters baby Sasha doll. My brother had Gregor.
  34. This is the one I mean Jean - I take a punt all the time, it's enviable some of them are going to be duds. And s...
  35. I have good news on this one! I'm pretty sure it's Instone & the bakelite is completely consistent with the period. I've seen other large bakelite drops like this one so I wouldn't find it unusual f...
  36. Hi Jean, I'm pretty confident this one is a modern reproduction. I see them from time-to-time. There are a few indicators. The mark is wrong, the gilding is too bright and the quality is not as s...
  37. Hi Kyra, its on the bottom of my collection page. Large round brooch. Big river in foreground, trees in background. Leafwork & beading around edge. Green & violet colour way.
  38. Hi Jean. I'm sorry to say I've got bad news for you on this one. Let me know if you want to low down.
  39. Have you seen my one Kyra? I'm not 100% sure it's Varley because the colour palate is unusual for him. But it is superb and it's huge. If it is him, and I think it is, its probably by the GoH. It'...
  40. Nice use of gold good, trees & mountain good. Not sure the definition, particularly around the trunk & branches are as good as yours.
  41. Mmmm, looking again I'm not quite sure - kinda - sorta
  43. Yeeees, very expensive as a general rule. That's why I only own one! There was a broken one that sold recently, thought you might have been onto it Kyra. A single tree, I thought likely Varley bu...
  44. No, it's not arrived yet. I'm not 100% sure it's by the Dawsons. It certainly has the right look. But a ring like that is so unusual that I thought is was worth a good go. I have 2 pieces which ...
  45. I did go all out & buy the enamel ring with the rose. Did you see that one?
  46. No. Very pretty but not Wager by a long shot.
  47. Yes the marquise opal. You know I don't really pay attention to stones so maybe it was the opal that was a bit extra desirable. I'll post some Newark tips when I get some time (going to bed now - ...
  48. Hi Jean, this is by the same maker as your earrings. Did you see the opal ring that recently sold on eBay. It was quite nice but sold for a lot of money! Interestingly I've recently bought an opa...
  49. Kinda -
  50. Never seen a ring before! (Apart from the original drawings & designs). Very cool.
