  1. Thank you Andreamw! Thanks for loving this set and the Mother's Day wishes.
  2. Just lovely! The workmanship, detail!
  3. Hi Fresh Air, Yes that's possible. Another possibility is that the this was a combination of two patents. The patent pending mark was commonly used whether there was a patent application or not. Tri...
  4. Hi Fresh Air, You're right about the center element and the general design, but the stones are a different shape. They are oval in the drawing for the patent you cited. Those clever Trifari jewelers t...
  5. Hi That's a gorgeous necklace. I can't believe you found that on Craigs list. Awesome! Your necklace appears to be a version of an Alfred Philippe patents, number 165,548, dated December 25, 1951. The...
  6. Lori, Of course, I loved yours then! Really a gorgeous piece, Thanks for the love. MrsTyndall, Thanks for the love and comment! Also thanks to vetraio50 dav2no1 AdeleC aura for the love!
  7. What a lovely find. I think this dates from the WWII era. Silver was allowed for jewelry production, because base metals were for the war effort. Coro as well as other manufacturers made shell casin...
  8. Hi Mrstyndall, Really dramatic and pretty. I agree, I don't think these are the Sorrento baby tooth pearls. The shape is slightly different. Also, from what I've seen of that line, they were always ...
  9. Hi Phil, Andreamw and Alfie21, Thanks for the lovely comments and love for the bracelet. Love to hear from other collectors. Eileen, Thanks for your complimentary comment, too. This was found at my...
  10. Hi Eileen, you could be right, but this type of painting wasn't so stylish then. Also that super long pin pretty much disappeared from all jewelry after the turn of the century. Perhaps it is from th...
  11. I didn't realize I hadn't come back to thank you, Mrstyndall, LaurenRichmond, Mary, Jenni, PhilDMorris, FreshAir and Andreamw. for your comments. Glad it brightened your day. Eileen, So nice to hear ...
  12. This is fantastic Art Deco piece but not French. The hallmark on the back is the signature of Fishel Nessler & Co, NY, NY. The company was in business from 1885 to around 1936. Just fabulous. Stunning!
  13. I love the green strawberry on the left. Unusual colors on such a beautiful design. Great finds!
  14. Jenni, Thank you!
  15. This is my guess. The M is the stone setter's mark. The 935 is a marking designating silver content higher than sterling as Jenni indicated. I think that small imprint mark is probably a European, (F...
  16. Thank you FreshAir, I found them years ago a couple of thrifts and small antiques mall. It was pure serendipity. The pricing was just a lovely surprise. I hope you'll find them, too. You never know wh...
  17. Wow that's a really pretty set, top maker and in superb condition! Welcome to CW!
  18. Yes it is silver. Isn't it marked 925 or 950 under the Made In Israel? If I were you I'd polish off all that tarnish. It's a nice piece and probably belongs in fine jewelry.
  19. The form of the brooch looks like lily of the valley and spring, but the colors say Christmas. A great find. It is gorgeous!
  20. The patent has slightly different tails on the birds, but I think that' s the date for this and the design provenance and origin.
  21. Hi Jenni, You lovely Duette dates from 1941. The Duette is in the Brunialti book American Costume Jewelry Art and Industry 1935-1950, Vol A-N. The design patent is 127,909, the clip patent is 179,8867...
  22. Eileen, He is beautiful. So glad he's in your costume jewelry stable. He is a stunning piece and to be an early KJL signature piece. Wow! Kudos to you for snagging this outstanding piece, which looks ...
  23. I agree with nutsabotas6 - big is better. I think this fabulous brooch is from the late 1930s, maybe into 1940. The enamel, size and construction say that to me. It does have great design, but whose? ...
  24. Gorgeous! No tags? I'd research design archives. Maybe Gucci, Oscar di la Renta, or somebody else. Top notch find.
  25. Yes the white one is awesome. I'm voting it might be Schreiner. Here's a sold one on etsy. There are signed ones in other...
  26. Hi Mary, have you tried google arts and culture? You can search by museum, artist, or medium. Some museums have exhibitions up virtually. There's lots to see there.
  27. Hi Mary, Thanks for looking out for that. Lots of places open here, and we went through the limited people thing last summer. Really there aren't that many people going to some stores. Restaurants are...
  28. Eileen, I saw your cute story yesterday and thought I had commented. I guess I didn't hit the submit button. That is so sweet to have a four-legged friend up the road. I hope you'll be able to go up t...
  29. Over the top wonderful find. I love this designer and the stones are so coveted. Wow all around!
  30. Thanks Eileen, for all that good history. Now I know!
  31. Love learning about the company from you and the other collectors here. Thanks for sharing your knowledge.
  32. Eileen, Good to know. I knew D&E manufactured for many companies. I didn't know Juliana was such a short lived line. So the Juliana jewelry on the isitjulianajewelry is not all Juliana. Interesting....
  33. I think it looks like early Mazer Bros. It's a beautiful brooch. I agree with your conclusion of the time period.
  34. Stunning detail with those tiny tesserae. It's beautiful.
  35. Hi Eileen, No trade secret here. I went to the antiques mall I rarely go to. I hadn't been there for months. Not surprising in 2020, right? A new dealer was there and her stuff is fabulous, and surpri...
  36. Thank you Jenni. I was surprised to find these as I haven't seen that many Juliana ever!
  37. Eileen, Do you know how they made the pink spots on the black beads look sugared? They really look like icing! Happy to push this back to the top, too.
  38. Awesome brooch! Welcome to Collectors' Weekly, too. Kramer of New York is a top designer. He designed for Christian Dior in the early 1950s. MsCrystalShip can tell you more. I think these are the alex...
  39. Eileen, I do have a guest room and it is waiting for you! I paid a pittance for this set, about 12% of what you suggested it might be worth, which is why I bought it. It was filthy when found, but di...
  40. Is that not so sweet. I love the adorable figurals. The expressions on the cats are so charming. Great find.
  41. What a fabulous antique! Thanks for posting these museum worthy objets d'art.
  42. Hi Mary, I'm the artist. A few years ago at an illustration workshop, ( I used to illustrate children's books) we had to do a mash-up of a favorite artist ( Kandinsky, for me), a favorite object ( for...
  43. Just as Eileen notes, this brooch is such an unusual design. I love the clear rhinestone pieces, too. I think they are timeless classics. Great find!
  44. Very elegant butterflies. Do you wear them all together? The Panetta is totally outstanding with those lovely cabochons. Beautiful!
  45. I love those sugar beads. I saw a flower with them recently but the paint looked worn. This guy looks like he is in perfect mint condition. Brava! Another wonderful post.
  46. That's gorgeous, Love the red hearts. And a perfect valentine!
  47. Beautiful bracelet! I have the earrings that match! Well, pretty close. I'll post them.
  48. I think this is middle-eastern. I reminds me of the large pendants on Yemeni headdresses and necklaces.
  49. Lammerts - a St. Louis, landmark, and tradition for decades. Pretty set of furniture.
  50. What a beautiful display of gorgeous jewelry. I hope you find them all!! Wear them in good health always. Best, Maureen
