  1. Lovely buckle.
  2. ...
  3. I'm wondering if the hinge and clasp has been changed if you look at the 4th photo. I'm at a bit of a loss because if I wouldn't have looked at the mark and read your write up I would have thought thi...
  4. Hi kyra, personal I would have to go with solid opal looking at it from the back. I'll be interested in what Pau...
  5. Oh what a beauty, could it be Wager.
  6. Thank you kyra, yes it doesn't look your run of the mill Bernard Instone. I think around the time this necklace was made he was beginning to change his style. As always thanks for your comment.
  7. Thank you brunswick.
  8. Hi Judy, it's nice to see you are posting again :-)))
  9. Hi Gillian, thank you for the link, cut steel jewellery is fascinating.
  10. Hi Phil, I've put a link above which will tell you the history of Clitheroe Castle. Yesterday was a festival in the town and the Red Arrows flew...
  11. Hi KarenLR, this is exactly the same design as my other pendant, notice the back is the same as this p...
  12. Thank you Karen, as always thanks for passing by.
  13. Hi KarenLR, thanks for your comment. I see were you are coming from the trellis work is similar. Also as you say the middle is different to the other pendant. Personally I think the other pendant as m...
  14. Hi Judy, I think your correct, looking at this item it doesn't have the rivets which would have made it Georgian. This is a later cheaper made piece, I've no idea of which era it from. I did read that...
  15. Hi KarenLR, yes living in Europe we are very lucky to have a great selection of old antiquities. I do look on the US eBay and there are a lot of wonderful antiques, my problem is that we have to pay a...
  16. Hi Judy, It makes prefect sense to recycle these pretty round steel cut buttons into earrings, and it's easy to do just add a shepherds hook and eh you have a pair of perfectly good earrings. Thanks f...
  17. Hi LOUMANAL, yes I can see that they could also have been used as shoe decorations, thanks for your comment.
  18. Hi KarenLR, I didn't see them this time unfortunately but I do think these photos are wonderful, especially with them flying over Clitheroe Castle, which was a big part of my childhood and is also to...
  19. Awww, thank you Karen, it certainly is different to his usually pieces, I suppose that's why I like it. As you say it's fully marked so there is no denying its his work which is also a plus.
  20. Hi Judy, in a way it reminds me of Jakob Bengel pieces, they were made in a bygone era but somehow still manage to look modern. As always thanks for your comment.
  21. Yes shareurpassion it does sit very well around the neck, it's quite small around 14 inches 36 cm luckily I have a small neck, lol. Thanks so much for your comment it's much appreciated.
  22. Hi KarenLR, yes the panels are what makes this necklace. I've seen another one exactly the same on the Bonhams archives website. Thanks for comment and passing by, your very welcome.
  23. Oops countries
  24. Thank you Caperkid, I really appreciate the comment. The Red Arrows are a institution in the U.K. And maybe the commonwealth country.
  25. Hi Scott, I have to say they are great photo's, which I had to share on CW. I've looked up USAF Thunderbirds and yes they are the same. Another thing that's amazing is that it couldn't have been a nic...
  26. Yes SpiritBear, they are great photo's, I wish I could take credit for them but unfortunately they are not mine. It brings back many memories of this iconic building that was part of my childhood and ...
  27. Thank you Ken. :-)))
  28. Thank valentino, with the black velvet ribbon it does bring back to life something that would have probably been thrown away.
  29. I do have another pair of similar earrings, looking at them both I think your correct in saying that their buttons, it makes sense.
  30. Yes I agree with you valentino, thank you for your comment I appreciate your input. :-))))
  31. Awww, thank you valentino, it is a lovely piece and it is timeless I wear it often, definitely a keeper.
  33. Hi vintiquechique, I have a similar pendant which I'll be posting soon, it not nearly as nice as this one, I'll be interested to see what you think. I did ask a person who deals in antique art and cra...
