  26. Apostata, thank you for loving this brooch and weighing in on the historical period. Very good point, there is always overlap and borrowing.
  27. That's a gorgeous snowflake brooch on the left. It looks like an unsigned Schreiner. Wow! Wonderful and if verified worth $$$! Enjoy!
  28. Searching1 Thank you! That's exactly how I felt when I found it. Sadly this thrift closed 5 or 6 years ago. It was a fabulous place while it lasted. Thanks for the love, too. And to the collectors...
  29. Beautiful micro mosaics! I'm wondering if the the bottom one is a reconstructed Parthenon? The remains don't have their end triangular lintels currently, but basically it was that shaped building.
