Collect jewels circa 1900. Please do not reproduce my photos without permission. Thanks.
Circa 1920, need a better photo of the mark. Considering the placement it's likely French or German.
This brooch is a thistle, Art Nouveau, French, made by the firm of Piel Freres. It's machine made, either in gilt metal or silver gilt, this design was made in both. The thistle part was probably or...
They are Bressens enamels.
It's by Amy Saindheim.
You're welcome. Eadie's work is more controlled, balanced & finer than the work of Thew. Also King's jewellery designs were made in a commercial workshop in Birmingham whereas Thew handmade her work...
It's by Kate Eadie.
These are both cloak clasps. Circa 1910, European. They are unusual, I usually only see the Arts & Crafts ones.
Nice Jean, did you see the other Dunlop pendant for sale at the same time?
I think this is a newbie Jean. If you compare it to your other MB&Co pieces you'll see it's not crisp in it's design and the chain's not quite right. Also, labradorite is not used during that period...
Hi Jean, I saw this and thought it was a lovely, lovely thing. I couldn't manage it at the time, but no doubt it was because I was buying something else lovely. But I did make a little song & dance a...
Ahh, yes. Look at that. I'll dig out mine tomorrow for a comparison but looks pretty spot on on the face of it. Silver dip is a cleaning fluid, as the name suggests you dip your jewellery in it & i...
BTW, the moonstone ring looks silver dipped. Try Kyra's egg trick, might mellow that down a bit.
Hi Jean, second row, on the right. Is that an Instone ring? I think it has a ceramic plaque in it (I have one of these myself). Ta.
And those leaves are very very Instone. I'm with you on that one.
Hi Jean, we are all well thanks very much. A few extra bits of info for you. About 2 minutes after responding to you, I found a bit of Linnell that had a silver mark on it. The silver mark was stamp...
Hi Jean, I hope you are well. I can see why you'd think Linnell, on the face of it - she used those distinctive curved lines. However, if you look at her work, it's hand made in the Arts & Crafts tr...
Poor old Ruskin would roll in his grave. From his perspective (and historically) they are very different types of objects, both in terms of beauty and social impact. One is mass made in a commerci...
They look typically British Arts & Crafts. Likely they were made by a student and that's why you've got a group of them together. Sometimes you see a group of work that's come out of a defunct works...
Even if a lead falls flat, every new find gives you more design elements to look for. Thanks for the info on the other two pieces. Thats a significant price guide.
No, I don't think that's crazy at all. I have bought many pieces to learn from. There are a whole lot of reasons a piece may be of interest. learning and honing your eye is as good as any. And BTW,...
You're your not sure if you like it yet because it's not quite got that finesse, it falls a little flat. Even some of the naive pieces of Arts & Crafts jewellery can have finesse. It might be becaus...
Well spotted, same maker but I still don't know who it is. Out of interest, who does the book say is the maker of the two big pieces in the middle?
I've had a few versions of this ibis design. I love their little drumsticks. There's a comb pictured in The Paris Studios with them on it. Your's is the best piece I've seen though, Such a great s...
That is really quite a good thing. The old doublets can chip quite easily so best keep it in a pouch and handle it carefully.
That's just my take based my experience. It's not 'official' or anything. And sometimes things don't necessarily fit within that. I also tend to think of Arts & Crafts jewellery in two phases or ge...
Your rustic piece is probably what I'd call a 'night school project'. There were lots of local classes run for amateurs so you can get some very wobbly bits. Some might be students just started at A...
Right period and stone arrangement for Linnell, but she tended to use a flat leaf, and her work, in general, is quite flat. Having said that, Linnell is tricky because often pieces of Instone are mis...
Lovely, but not by Nossitor. The designs are similar, but Nossitor's construction work is quite distinctive. If you have an instagram account, follow Tadema Gallery. Instagram is the best way to be...
This is a lovely design, but the work is very generic. It's hard to attribute it. Lots of lovely pieces were made by the students at the arts schools. It was also relatively cheap to buy a kiln for...
Lovely. Arts & Crafts. Nicely made but not obviously attributable. I've got a brooch with similar plated wirework.
De Koningh specialisted in kingishers. Although I'm not sure if this is one of his. There is a range with this bright green background. I'd say it's the top of a hat pin.
Sometimes, when firms were making ranges of jewellery for specific clients, particularly international clients, they either wouldn't mark their jewellery or they'd mark it consistent with the standard...
It's got a bit of Zoltan & White about it. English with a strong Austro-Hungarian influence.
Super pretty, you know the one with the opal is the top of a hat pin? I love a bit of plique.
I think a couple of firms made a design similar to this. I've seen several variations some marked, others not. I've also wondered if their might not be some reproductions out there. (yours looks co...
This is also a great page - http://www.morninggloryantiques.com/collectVictBog.htm
Lovely collection. Mourning jewellery is quite a specialised field, there's an excellent website called Art of Mourning which has lots of information on it. A few things though, jet was not alway wo...
Hi, I hope you are all well. This is a lovely hand-made piece in the Arts & Crafts style. It's on the newish side. Seasons greetings!
That's an amazing Art Nouveau lamp.
Your locket is American, gold filled, by William & Hough. Design on the front appears to have had a black enamel outline. I'm thinking about 1880 - but someone else might know the American jewel fas...
Ha! I saw these, good fun!
Never seen anything like it. It's quite fascinating. Once you get it & get a clear photo I'll see if the mark is in any of my German jewel books. xx
I don't know much except that it's an imitation of scrimshaw. Not a cameo. If you google scrimshaw, you'll find lots of information. Hope that helps.
Thanks Kyra, I'm not getting notifications either. Haven't for a while. xx.
Bonjour gorgeous Pascale. Your garden is looking very fine. I need to weave a little big of your magic to restore a patina. Can you please tell me your recipe with the egg? Thanks xx.
No worries Jean.
It's unusual that it has no marks on it. Has a nice 'hammered' finish to it.
WHH was a firm, primarily made for Liberty but also sold wholesale to Connels and other retailers. I'm not aware that this design is attributed to any specific designer. The problem is that the arch...
The back is consistent with Thew. I absolute agree with Sightseer. Do dip or wet this brooch in anyway. A light polish with a silver cloth occasionally will keep it pristine.
