  1. Thank you!
  2. Or because it is a button, could it be from the British clothing brand Kilgour founded as T&F French in 1880s...or is that too far stretched?
  3. Could it be the same T&F? https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/489285583/victorian-art-nouveau-brass-drawer-pulls?show_sold_out_detail=1
  4. So pretty!
  5. @kyratango ..more here The Industrial Directory of New Jersey, couple years available, starting 1901; jewelers are listed by metal, pearl, etc categories. No hallmarks :(, but still pretty good inform...
  6. Thank you for the comment and advice, I need as much suggestions as possible. I didn't touch them, past what I posted, I wanted to clean the back a bit more, but it's fine like that. I usually do not ...
  7. Did you try Newark Museum, they have a new book out about their collection Jewelry from pearls to platinum to plastic? I am sorry if I keep suggesting things you already have or know!

  9. I don't know if you already know this one, but just in case - Nichols, Alisson on Antique Enameled Jewelry and they have one on Egyptian Revival, but this might be later than what interests you!
  10. Thank you!
  11. Thank you! I have started to wonder if it is glass... In the end, it was the color that made me buy it!
  12. So pretty and I see some lily of the valley :)
  13. Love the brooch. Lily of the valley is my favorite flower and the brooches are also so pretty.
  14. Thanks! :)
  15. Thank you!
  16. They are pretty and it's nice they were/are around for quite some time.
  17. Thank you, I was thinking is rather on the early side, but I have a lot to learn.
  18. Thanks! It worked for me too. :)
  19. @nutsabotas6 I love birds brooches and lately, even rings with birds. So cute :) @Ms. CrystalShip...Blue Bird of Happiness....love that. Thank you! @kyratango Thank you!
  20. On a second look, there is writing on the clasp it might be pat pe - patent pending. That's my best guess.
  21. On the bow brooch, there is some writing. I think it might be pat pe - patent pending or maybe it's something else. I have tried with a small jeweler's loupe, but this is my best guess.
  22. Thank you!

  34. I am still learning to navigate the site. But, I think I am addicted already both to the site and brooches. :) I added a picture with the back, not sure the best.
  35. Thank you.
  36. Thank you!
  37. On a second look, it seems to me to be animi (imperative of animare)
  38. Maybe...Anime Columba - anime plural of anima (soul) in Italian, Columba (dove)
  39. Thank you for the information, I did not test for bakelite, so I am not certain. It looks similar to your brooch, very pretty.
  40. Yes, that's all I can see.
  41. That's a better way to put it, I will adopt your line. :)

  47. I think I have the exact brooch that goes with them. I am new here, not sure if I can a pic as a comment.
  48. I bought it couple of weeks ago, so I do not know anything about it, it was just very dusty; some warm water did wonders for it.
