  1. I agree with Watchsearcher. This was an accessory to hold gloves, scarf or even loop a pair of cool sunglasses on. Nice! I think it's 50's or 60's.
  2. So beautiful!!
  3. Love this set too. So classsic!
  4. Very unique! Love them.
  5. Your photos are so pretty!
  6. Toy King!!
  7. WOW, I love your collection. Thanks for sharing! Agree, amazing detail and quality! I think you probably have many watch chains and watches too? My favorite - the turquoise and guns altho I'm not a g...
  8. Please give basic measurements in your description, it is obvious that it isn't a bracelet, but the more info you provide the more we can. Fun belt - I love it!
  9. Silver (plata) from Mexico. 1930's-40's. This is a fun design to fix since it has lot's of good bones.
  10. Hello my dear Sue - Love these pieces! That necklace is fabulous. Sorry that you are going through this time with your Mama. XOXO, Mary
  11. Eileen - I do have some missing pieces in my hoarder apartment :-) But they are in a general area, it's just a matter of doing a Spring (Summer LOL) cleaning to herd it all back to the storage places....
  12. Gorgeous colors and design.
  13. Looks like painted celluloid.
  14. Wonderful images Phil! I lived in a haunted place in San Diego for 3 years. The landlord and I compared notes about it the whole time. We were respectful and didn't joke about it but we both agreed th...
  15. We have so many posts about this. I guess that no one really cares about doing research and is relying on a quick answer.
  16. Thanks anile2010 for saying what I also know from many years of collecting Czech and Bohemia jewelry and I've posted and said here on CW. I only have 2 that I am pretty sure are real Neiger pieces ou...
  17. Both are beautiful. Love them! I agree that it can be discouraging realizing how expensive it is to find matching pieces, and really great when the collecting gods put one in your path. :-)
  18. And, it is such a timeless design! What a wonderful find for FREE! Gotta love those free gifts from the Collectin' Gods!
  19. Sad, but important part of history. Thank you for reminding us. The easiest (not really, but most effective) way is to save to your computer, rotate them, crop, etc., then upload to this site.
  20. I love your collection of watch keys.
  21. It looks like painted celluloid. Or maybe gutta percha?
  22. Very nice both front and back. In all my searches on Neiger I haven't seen this griffin. It's a beautiful necklace.
  23. I'm with Eileen and MrsT - great quality, great find!
  24. So cute!
  25. Someone made this little guy and sewed the snap on it.
  26. This is great fun, but fairly new. I have a similar w/white howlite stones. Your example has pearl, shell, agates, glass or moonstone. Awhile ago another CW friend posted one like yours and here's my ...
  27. What a great haul! I love the rococo-style 40's-50's brooches most. Definitely the one w/citrine yellow stones! All wonderful - the "critter" w/grapes means something, someone will know. Hope you are ...
  28. I love this classic design too. It's timeless and could be worn with your other rhinestone jewels!
  29. The design and colors are very dramatic. Love it too :)
  30. It could almost be Brutal (istic) if it wasn't so gorgeous, LOL. I love this ring. I hope you wear it in best of health. Interesting blue enamel, very graceful, reminds me of the deep ocean eels.
  31. From Tibet, Nepal or Afghanistan. Great suggestion and tutorial link from CW friends. As many vintage beads as I have I've always stayed away from this style because there are so many copies with base...
  32. I go to many gem shows to buy semi-precious beads, and stones to make into jewelry and these are probably serpentine, bowenite or chalcedony. So many wonderful carved pendants and beads are available ...
  33. These wonderful 1930's (I think) come up on ebay now and again. If it's from Cairo then it is a tourist item, beautifully made. I'm sure these were made from the 1920's until present day. So lovely!!
  34. What a great haul!! I LOVE that seahorse pin. I used to work at a thrift store in Oakland (by Fort Lauderdale, FL) Such great finds. Nice bracelet too.
  35. So pretty, pink sapphires! Love rose gold. Maybe your Mom will remember some little detail? XO my friend!
  36. Well, I love them both, but definitely the bracelet :) Love those sandals!
  37. Thank you Broochman, yes, this is an interesting French celluloid bracelet. I love it too and as you can see the blues are growing on me.
  38. Thank you Broochman for looking at this - yes, it's pretty wonderful. XOXO Have a great weekend!
  39. I agree, I think it's a custom ring with someone's initials.
  40. I hate to love it. :)
  41. You are welcome Amanda. It's called "Antique purses, compacts and other vintage ladies accessories" I've posted on it and received great help to ID some of my items.
  42. German, not sure of era. If you are on facebook there's a antique purse forum and they are quick to help out. Very pretty.
  43. Hope your appt. Monday goes well! Thinking of you.
  44. Great colors and design!
  45. Hello friend, there's a navy blue Weiss clamper on etsy you might want to take a look at. XOXO
  46. Short necklace?
  47. Gorgeous!
  48. Very nice brooch with nice old glass pieces. I like upcycles!
  49. Lovely item and photos!
  50. Great graphics and colors!
