  1. Hi Jean, I hope you are well. Yes to Australian, and I think you are right that the stone has been dyed. No to Wager. And I got done by a fake too, it happens.
  2. Here's another one - https://www.ebay.de/sch/Antikschmuck-/33131/i.html?_from=R40&_nkw=jugendstil&_sop=10 Same maker I'd say but still not idea who it is.
  3. Here's another similar one - https://www.etsy.com/listing/520884102/blue-bead-necklace-dainty-silver?ga_order=date_desc&ga_search_type=vintage&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=victorian&ref=sr_gal...
  4. Thanks for all your lovely comments & loves. Bluboi, I put the chain on the cherub. It's period one that I've picked up on my travels. I shall give him a kiss from you!
  5. I don't think your pendant is by James Cromer Watts but every time I see this pendant by him, it reminds me of yours. https://www.pinterest.com.au/pin/540150549034589926/ I think the original ...
  6. Welcome!
  7. Curious, I've never seen a clasp before or one with an etched design in the stone, however, the leaf & berry work is very similar to your pendant. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/ANTIQUE-SILVER-ARTS-AND...
  8. Agree - Austro Hungarian. Looks very pretty to wear.
  9. Victorian Scottish brooch. Agates, looks like a banded agate & cornelian in there - someone will be able to tell you all of them. If you google Victorian Scottish Jewellery or similar combinatio...
  10. Hi Jean, I hope you are well. I'm surprised I didn't mention on this post that I thought your pendant was a Liberty one. Not to worry, here's a signed example - http://www.nouveaudecoarts.com/Jewe...
  11. Yummy, yummy, yummy. Look at the lovely gentle texture of that work. Immediately you want to touch it! That's a very lovely thing, thanks for sharing.
  12. Hi Kiwitaia, I think these pieces are manufactured so very unlikely to be made by a Cork Arts & Crafts movement which you'd expect to produce handmade jewellery. It was very popular at the time to ...
  13. It's a bit hard to tell but your leaf could also be this one - https://www.rubylane.com/item/872660-RL1656/Antique-Cork-Irish-Arts-Crafts-Sterling?search=1 Sometimes this type of leaf work can be h...
  14. Cool, that wasn't meant to to sound patronising either. Some members of the community don't always want to know so I check first. I think your pendant was originally a German brooch. If you look ...
  15. Hi Kiwitaia, some people come here to learn and others come to share their treasures. I have an opinion on your pendant but I don't think it's going to be what you expect. If you want to know it, le...
  16. I think you are right. The pierced work looks like quite good quality.
  17. I forgot to mention, the V & A has now published it's holdings of Gaskin designs online. It's not the easiest archive to search but it's very useful.
  18. See item 28. http://thefineartsociety.com/usr/documents/exhibitions/list_of_works_url/25/the-art-jeweller-catalogue.pdf
  19. One of the advantages of collecting Arts & Crafts jewels is that you can often buy randomly beautiful little pieces of art like this to wear at affordable prices. You never know when you find that ...
  20. Hi Belle, your pendant is lovely. I don't think the flower would be too hard to restore if you have a jeweller who understands antique hand made jewellery. I think you are right that it is a stude...
  21. I look forward to it.
  22. Hi Orvit, I'd say your buckle & my comb are made by the same maker. I do mean Maison Arnould. I don't know a huge amount about that firm but I can see you've found one of their catalogues so they ...
  23. Hi Orvit, It's unmarked. I'm pretty sure it's French and of the style of Dumont or Arnould. The top piece is cast or stamped separately from the the comb teeth so it's likely that you could buy the ...
  24. Hi Belle, looking forward to seeing more of your treasures. Has your boyfriend been busy making you more lovely fitted drawers? Happy New Year PS, I posted a photo of my recent Sandheim penda...

  26. I thought a chatelaine had tools and necessities on them?
  27. Apologies Judy, appalling with names, just ticked off my middle boy for not calling his cousin by her name & called him his brothers name! I know the Palm Beads ones, they've been about for a while...
  28. Oh yes Bonnie, my seller has another. But to give them credit, they are being completely honest with their description. Mine did say Wager style, from the 1980's. Very clear. Bummer, fakes und...
  29. Hi Jean, I'm very sorry to say this isn't right. It's not just the 925 but the shank, the setting, the leaf & wire work all point to a fake. But the signature looks completely right. But it's not. ...
  30. It's not a chatelaine but a lucky charm. All of the various charms will represent some wish of good fortune for the wearer. I'm sure someone will be able help you more with what each of the charms r...
  31. Hi Judy, I think it may be glass, I've seen this colour called peking glass. I think it's a Prouds one. I noticed the Powerhouse Museum has updated their website & there's a lot more Australian Scho...
  32. No Celene, I take that back. I had a look at one I have that is very similar & you are right. The ball on mine is part of the mechanism that's holding in the stone. Well spotted.
  33. Hi Celiene, I'm very fond of frogs. The silver dot or ball is part of the design.
  34. Hi Belle, I hope you are well & finding treasure. My hubby just came back from London & bought me home a new Saindheim pendant in a similar shape to yours. Amethysts, moonstone & foiled moonstones.
  35. Hi Jean, does the hole on the back (which seems to have a ring holding onto the stone drop) correspond to the hole in the front? If so check that the stone is secure, just in case those holes are the...
  36. Hi Jean, I have a couple of rings that might be by Thew and they are very arts & crafts. I think she was quite diverse in her work but always in that strong Arts & Crafts tradition.
  37. Hi Jean, I think this is more modern. Also, I think Thew's work has more definition than this. The balls sit on top of the wire work. Just my impression though.
  38. I think it's a japanese fan design. Very similar to the designs by Florence Broadhurst who was a well known Australian designer from the 60's & 70's. http://www.florencebroadhurst.com.au/designs-1/
  39. Hi Jean, I hope all is well with you & that you're sneaking in some markets while you're busy in the UK. Lov'n your pendant. Especially the heart moonstone and the lillypad bale. I've never seen ...
  40. Hi Krya, it looks to me like those clusters of leaves are cast. Can you remove one group & have a couple cast & then replace them? It has a good designer feel, but I think this is in the style o...
  41. I'm no expert but I think a bit of cold enamel would be the best option. The real trick is matching the colour. Shouldn't cost a fortune. Let me know how you go.
  42. Hi Jean, if you can't get it replaced with an enamel, I'd go for mother of pearl. To my mind you'd more likely see mother of pearl than an opal in that space and with that colour enamel. Would also ...
  43. 1. doh! 2. not Artificers Guild, don't know maker 3. leave it until you can find an expert
  44. Nope, never seen this flower or leaf before. Completely new to me! Another nice for your collection.
  45. Looks good for a MBCo mark to me Jean.
  46. That's not a makers mark, it's probably a design or stock number. It's very like Hayle pressed metal work but their deigns are more arts & craft in style. I don't think I've seen any Hayle designs...
  47. Got yourself an Albertina. The T-bar went in your button hole, the clip attached to your pocket watch which went in your pocket, the tassel hung down for decoration. It could be worn across the tors...
  48. Here's a new bit of info on this type of leaf. A ring marked Cork. https://www.rubylane.com/item/872660-RL1656/Antique-Cork-Irish-Arts-Crafts-Sterling?search=1
  49. Maybe if you rub it 3 times you'll morph to the Sydney Harbour Bridge!
  50. Someone bought well!
