  1. Fantastic post! You must have been so excited to go back to your roots and find such cool things as souvenirs :-D
  2. Hi Gary, thanks for your search! I already explored all images about them ;-) For de Beers, these "diamonds" from Parisian Diamond Company were only simulant! Laws then seem to be less strict than n...
  3. Got the answer from AbeBook... 79$ for one page of ad! No way :-))
  4. Hohoho! Cute monkey and photos :-) We are going to New York for 4 days at the end of this month... I bet it'll be a great experience :-D After reading your comment #3, I decided not to take my mach...
  5. Aww, thank you so much Gary! I just sent Abe Books a question about their item, to be sure it is a book about the company (catalogue... I hope...) and not only a page of advertisement taken of a news...
  6. Thanks for the link, Judy! Will have a look!!! The scratched letters are usually a code a jeweller mark on a piece he repaired :-)
  7. Rather looks like a banded Achilles Morpho, or similar :-)
  8. Hi Ho2! Not an entomologist... But it doesn't seem to be the blue variety...
  9. FANTASTIC! You finally got one :-D Yes, swallows, and not after 1910's! This is the first I saw of two birds on a twig, though the swallows are a recurrent subjet they used. Describing pastes as ...
  10. Very arty! I love your photo :-) Some of my stagings: https://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/198778-chamois-vienna-bronze-old?in=collection-5370 https://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/246028-an...
  11. Oohh, merci SummerBlues! Welcome to CW ;-)
  12. Aww, thank you Tigra for sharing my searches! I'm giving up for the moment, waiting for another lucky hazard ;-) A case from the Company or a full catalogue would delight me! Ms.Crystalship, so tr...
  13. Gorgeous! If cold to the touch (feel it wit your lips!) and heavy, and the fact it is deep black, strong possibility it is glass! Gutta percha becomes brownish with age :-)
  14. Lovely, striking Bzz Bzz vase, Karen!
  15. Yep, TassieDevil is right, Dragon's breath art glass, very stylish and nice ring! I think around 1930. https://abfabtreasures.wordpress.com/category/fire-opal/ Welcome to CW :-)
  16. Victorian, around 1880 is my feeling :-) Gold or rolled gold rather than gilt, I think... but it is only from pic ;-D
  17. Found something on 925-1000, But nothing on Mr Sanderson who is said to be the owner of the parisian diamond company... Scroll down on this page : https://www.925-1000.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=30...
  18. Ooh Tigra! A big thank you for your search! I think I'll subscribe to be able to read the whole articles... I saw one of the newspapers anounced by mistake the fail and bankruptcy of the parisian di...
  19. Judy, you're right, this "bug" of CW is truly bothering... Now, I can't add a post to my collections :-( I emailed Ben once more yesterday about that matter, which tend to keep me away from the site...
  20. Aww Ken, what a cutie!!! Love the grouping too, nice doggies :-D
  21. Scott! He is marvellous! I need one... ;-)
  22. Thinking BZZ Bzzz! I love it ;-)))
  23. Asian, probably Chinese, made for export market. The carving is really fine! Welcome to CW :-)
  24. Haha, I read all the articles found, eyes crossing now ;-)) Found nothing else for Msrs Anderson & Hall...

  26. Woohh! A huge thanks to you, Judy, and Tlynnie to join the sleuthing :-D Exploring the Australian archives there, but having to leave before completing the reading: https://trove.nla.gov.au/newspa...
  27. Phil, thank you! Did you have a glance at the enlarged last pic? The sculptures are quite in your alley :-) Judy!!! How great it is you found something to help, THANK YOU!!! I think they were reta...
  28. If you go to Pinterest,type in search for "mysterious maker etruscan urn (?) mark", you'll find my board with all pieces I found over the Internet :-)
  29. Ahh, Karen, I so agree with you, THANK YOU! The starburst is the most matching, but I found more that I can't post, because the pieces aren't mine... A particular brooch representing a paste set hare...
  30. Great!!! Loupe is important, eye is important but ALL OVER IS THE BRAIN ;-))) Great laugh here :-D
  31. Hi Bluboi! I don't know if you are still receiving alerts from CW when someone comments... Anyway, I give a try here! I'm seeking for your help about identification of my "mysterious maker" with th...
  32. Jenni, thank you! I love these little paste gems critters too :-), Their quality is about as fine as the precious ones! Really hoping someone could have access to other ephemeras or infos about this ...

  34. Scott! Happy to see you and your Great Danes ! Not so often here too... still not getting notifications about comments from CW :-/
  35. Hi Judy! Maybe some clues for identification of the "Mysterious Maker"! https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/816Dw3iPHNL._SY606_.jpg https://www.google.fr/search?q=the+parisian+diamond+...
  36. Halas Judy, still not receiving E-mail notifications from CW! Grrr, I give a look from time to time ;-)
  37. Judy, I love them! What's best than history and sentimental in jewelry :-D
  38. Hi Gillian! Look what I found! https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/816Dw3iPHNL._SY606_.jpg https://www.google.fr/search?q=the+parisian+diamond+company&client=ms-android-orange-fr&s...
  39. Perhaps a lead to the mysterious maker... The parisian diamond company based in London worked in the right time frame in high quality imitation diamonds and pearls mounted in silver and gold! htt...
  40. Perhaps a step to identify the mysterious maker! I found old advertisements images of "THE PARISIAN DIAMOND COMPANY" lots of similar models!!! They worked in imitation diamonds and pearls, in the r...
  41. This is a REGAL post !
  42. Hi Raven, I think your green stone is amazonite :-)
  43. Another never seen similar! What a find :-D
  44. Wow! Never seen something like that! Ladies must have had lots of fun with their tea gatherings :-)
  45. How sweet it is, Mani! Karen is nearly right, the tube hinge and C (well curled!) clasp place it earlier than turn of century, I'd say 1880's :-)
  46. Superb piece! Welcome to CW :-D
  47. Ooh! Mary, you deserved to find this perfect piece! After so long waiting, this is the perfect catch :-D
  48. Bravo!!! Another sweet addition!
  49. Well done on the hunt ;-)) Your pics are outstanding too Ô_Ô
  50. Mrstyndall's one has a lot of similarities, mainly the enamel decor, I feel them to be 1920/1930 era :-D
