Wonderful goldtone and black enamel with Rhinestone pave Bob cat head and pave tail. Signed Panetta these bracelets have a 2.5 inch by 1.75 inch opening. Benedetto Panetta began as a jeweler in Naples, Italy. Panetta became one of the lead designers for Trifari until the mid 30's, he then worked for Pennino and in 1945 began his own company. His designs are highly prized for their detail and sophistication. The companion brooch to this bracelet is featured in the book "Costume Jewelry" the great pretenders. What a Rare opportunity to get 2 matching bracelets and the brooch. I will include a brooch converter to make this into a pendant that can be worn with the bracelets.

Diachroic/Alexandrite Bakelite: Azure Blue Prystal Bakelite bracelet was an exciting discovery by Brandon Welch, Bakelite Artist. This vintage blue prystal bracelet was newly dotted by Brandon. When he polished the bracelet we thought was applejuice he made this remarkable discovery. 1.25 inches wide and very thick this bracelet is substantial. Brandon Welch is an avid Nouveau and Deco jewelry collector with a focus on Bakelite and early plastics. He is an experienced sculptor of 15 years with work in many mediums. These last few years more and more of his focus has become Bakelite. With Bakelite Jewelry, Brandon brings the finesse of a jeweler. Brandon has an extensive palette of genuine vintage Bakelite material to choose from, to create these original pieces. I am proud to offer a line of signed hand sculpted and inset Vintage Bakelite bracelets and custom crafted pins created by Brandon . These pieces have been created with the same time honored techniques, from Vintage Bakelite rods and tubes, manufactured before 1940. Prystal bakelite bangles are difficult to find, and the Azure Blue is one of the most difficult. This bracelet is featured in the Antique Trader online on February 10th, 2011 in an article by Kathy Flood, noted author. The link is not clickable, but you can cut and paste to see this beauty.

This brooch is in the form of a Maltese cross and features the emblem inspired by a Fabrege Finial in the Treasures of the Czars Exhibit that traveled about the United States during the mid 1990's. The Fabergé finial of the Russian National Banner, with its ornate crafting and use of the double-headed eagle is a symbol of the power of the czars and of Russia itself. The finial is gilded silver in the form of a smooth globe orb, which is crowned by a cast two-headed eagle. The two-headed eagle is under three crowns with a scepter and an orb in its claws; on the eagle's breast is a large shield with the image of the Moscow coat-of-arms surrounded by the chain of the Order of St. Andrew the First Called. On the widespread eagle's wings are shields with the coat-of-arms of Russian territories and principalities. The original finial was made by the head silversmith of the firm of Fabergé, Julius Alexandrovich Rappaport. The sumptuous gilded finial is distinguished by the well-balanced proportions of all its parts, careful drawing of the smallest detail: the feathers of the eagle, the crown, symbols of power, the exact drawing of the heraldic images. The finial was made for the national banner in 1896 for the coronation of Nicholas II. The national banner was blessed on the eve of the coronation, May 12, 1896, in the Throne Room of the Armory Palace. On it was a wide, gold, woven image of the national coat-of-arms, framed in oak and palm leaves. The transitional government that came to power after the February revolution of 1917 and the abdication of Nicholas II continued to use the two-headed eagle as the state emblem, but the symbols of monarchy -- the crowns, orb and sceptre -- were removed. After the October revolution of 1917, the eagle was abolished until 1993, when once again it became the emblem of Russia. (Text taken from catalog description by Marina P. Golovanova.) This Brooch was given to each Volunteer who worked as a docent or attendant at every exhibit throughout the United States. These were not available for sale, so they were coveted and very limited in production. Excellent, very well cared for condition. The brooch also has a loop so it can be worn as a pendant.

This is a wonderful recently verified Early Delizza and Elster Juliana Necklace. I had this personally verified by Frank DeLizza at the Vintage Fashion and Costume Jewelry Convention. Frank recognized his work immediately and told me that it was an early piece. The Red stones were only used for a very limited time and this particular style and construction was a very limted production also. Very Nice condition

Wonderful UNSIGNED sterling "River of Life" bracelet has been verified as a Period Copy of the famous bracelet design attributed to William Spratling with the matching Signed earrings. This bold, heavy silver cuff bracelet was one of Spratling's most popular designs both in the 1930s - mid 1940s and remains popular today! Its design is a wonderful example of Spratling's earliest work: silver balls, silver beads, rope trim, and heavy carved incised lines. Spratling described this design as a wide Aztec bracelet with framed buttons. Spratling did not produce this design after 1946. The bracelet is substantial 1 and 7/8 inches wide and the earrings are 3/4 inches wide with a 3/8” dome. These earrings are known as Half ball silver earrings. According to Spratling's autobiography "File on Spratling," this was one of his earliest designs. He continued to produce these earrings until early 1946 according to I purchased these items together from an estate along with some other early Mexican Silver pieces. The River of Life Bracelet is one of Spratlings best known designs. This bracelet is very substantial and has appropriate patina and wear for the age. The domed areas have some dings, but for me that indicates that this bracelet was a favorite and was worn and enjoyed regularly by the original owner. The earrings have wonderful patina and are fully hallmarked with the ca. 1940's stamp. I have included lots of photos. Any other questions, please feel free to contact me.
