Thank you Brunswick, MsCrystalShip and Broochman. I had no idea there was a number on there -- time for new glasses!
LOL I definitely could have worded my question better. I wondered if it had a name — I’ve been calling it a bouquet Brooch.
Thank you for the info and your kind comments. The thrift store is in Virginia, near Washington, D.C.
Thank you fortapache
Thank you Mrstyndall!
Could someone tell me please what the type of rhinestones are called that look like they have a rainbow or prism in them? I don't think they are AB. Thank you!
Mrstyndall — thank you, you’re right it is Selini. I have found others on line now. I thought initially it was Belini but there weren’t enough Ls! Wouldn’t it look great on the hatband of a summer str...
Hi Braider -- Thanks for the insight. I didn't spot that the handled dish is a different pattern. It is not marked at all on the bottom, unlike the other pieces. The rim of that handled dish feels rou...
My Dad loved this show! Alf was always trying to snack on cats if I recall correctly.
Does its head turn when the tail is moved? If so, it could be a Yes No Tricky Bear by Schuco.
My mother gave me a set of Coro and that was it! I was hooked.
It is gorgeous.
The dolls that I had look exactly like these and they had lead feet. We had to buy a new mother because the original mom's head fell off. The replacement mom had hair (wig) rather than just the cerami...
As a child in the late 60's, early 70s, Santa Claus brought the boy and girl dolls to live in my new dollhouse. I think they are Caco but not as old as the 20s. My dollhouse dolls were purchased new f...
Thank you truthordare
Thank you Ms. Crystal Ship -- I originally passed on purchasing him and then went back to the store. I belong to a FaceBook group for vintage jewelry repair and am hoping I can locate a stone through ...
Upon closer examination with a magnifying glass, Volia! It's marked "Coro Duette" Thank you everyone who pitched in and commented.
I had to go look up a picture of "deer by the waterfall" and after doing so, have to agree with Ms.CrystalShip -- fabulous!
Yes it does have a patent. I will research it
But what if I want to keep it Broochman, how would I clean it?
Ms.CrystalShip -- thank you -- I will take a look.
Thank you PhilDMorris I don't know much, but I know not to get rhinestones wet. I once cleaned a brooch with rubbing alcohol on a Q-tip as I was instructed by a CWer. LOL I can be taught.
I knew that game as "Kim's game." The name is derived from Rudyard Kipling's 1901 novel Kim, in which the hero, Kim, plays the game during his training as a spy. We played it in Girl Scouts.
Shareurpassion -- thank you for the information. Why is it so bad to use silver polish on silver? Is it too destructive to older pieces? (I took your advice and got the excess polish off.)
It looks to me like the pattern for 1928 jewelry. That's no help! Sorry!
Rescued a lab mix almost three years ago -- He's the best!
The earrings are marked STER on the piece that holds the stone/glass and on the back of the screw.
Scottvez thank you! I thought perhaps the case was from that era because I seem to recall seeing something similar on antiques roadshow. Thanks!!!!
How can I determine what the earrings are made of?
Thank you MsCrystalship
Celine — thank you for the information. You made my day!
I don't restore dolls but when I find one in need of TLC I buy her. I then list her on my Etsy site for a reasonable price, knowing that someone out there will buy her, restore her and keep her out of...
She looks like a Mary Kate Ashley Olsen doll. Try googling that...
Thank you Broochman. Where does one find patent numbers?
Thank you Newfld for the compliment! Gillian, I very much appreciate the link. I have several pieces to clean so I’d better get busy. Thanks again.
McCormick have office in Maryland -- did he ever work for them?
Yes I agree but SOMEBODY has to support my estate sale habit! Lol
Thank you for the compliments. I can't decide whether to sell or keep.
A FaceBook group that I joined thought this looked like an Artisan Raving Beauty doll (she IS very pretty). Your thoughts please....
I am late to the party but I love your collection! The Christmas mouse on ice skates made me smile. I owned him as a child. Hmmm....maybe I should check my jewelry box, he may still be there...
Hi TallCakes -- thank you for the input. It sounds like it's been manufactured as a reproduction of the original if I am interpreting your comments correctly. I appreciate the information. Thanks agai...
Hello Time Travller, thank you for the info. Much appreciated.
Lucky! Lucky! It sounds like the right person found that brooch! Good luck with your hunt! They are gorgeous.
Did you see the other doll I posted Manikin?
Thank you Manikin I was hoping you would know.
Thank you Newfld for your kind comments. She is very pretty. I wish I was an expert at doll restoration.
Thank you for the info Newfld
Very pretty! I especially like the sculpting on the wings.
