This bracelet is flexible and has 18 pink sapphires (total of about 2.7 ct.) in the center of the links which have a lot of granulation on the sides. It is marked on the back of the tongue of the clasp. I guarantee that this is a Tiffany bracelet, since my client personally purchased it in a Tiffany store.

This charming porcelain figurine is 10-1/2" tall, including the base. The mark on the bottom is N with a crown and a green line under the N. This is not Capodimonte, it is German. The figure is a dancing woman in flowing robes. She is leaning back and holds her arms above her head with a tambourine in her left hand. She is completely hand painted and dates to approximately the late 19th century. The condition is excellent, although there is a hardly noticeable chip on one of the petals on the yellow rose on the base, to be expected in a piece of this age.

This snake ring in 18K white gold weighs a total of 20.4 g. or 13.1 dwt. It is pave set with 4.86 ct. of champagne or cognac diamonds and .88 ct. of yellow sapphires, mixed to create the effect of snake skin. There are two marquise rubies for the eyes. The ring measures size 7, but fits like a size 6 or 6-1/2 because of the width of the band, which is 3/4" high in the front, 3/8" high in the back. In theory the ring could be sized because the stones are not set in the back, but a very skillful jeweler would be required. It is marked 750 inside the back. The ring dates to about the 1970's, and the condition is excellent, like new, unworn.

This 14K yellow gold charm measures 1" high by 5/8" wide, not including the ring at the top. I have not found any marks, but I have tested it and guarantee it is 14K. The charm is in the form of an ark with doors that open to reveal a torah inside. The doors only open with tight springs, so that they stay firmly closed when shut. The charm weighs 6 g. or 3.9 dwt. It dates to about the 1950's and the condition is very good. It is hard to find these original vintage charms, since many of them have been melted.

This is an original oil on board by Ben Benn. The board is 11-3/4" by 9", with frame 16-1/2 by 14". The scene depicts a large reddish bird in a tree, deep in a forest. It is signed and titled at the upper right on the back of the board, "Wood Interior/Ben Benn." I guarantee that the painting is by Benn, since I am selling the painting for a friend who bought it directly from Benn over 60 years ago. The condition is very good, no holes, although a light cleaning may be in order. There is a little of the canvas showing at the lower left of the painting, and it looks like the paint was never applied to the area.

The image of this ink drawing is about 6.5 x 9 inches, 12 x 15 inches with the frame. I have not found a signature, but the title "After the Ball" is handwritten lower right. The composition is excellent and the play of dark on the head, white on the torso and dark on the skirt indicate that a skilled artist created this drawing. In addition the body twists from the shoulders to the waist to the hips, knees, legs. The hair style and the clothing appear to date around 1910. The entire image conveys the relaxed exhaustion of a participant in a ball. The condition is good, no visible tears, just a shadow of a crease in the upper third area of the paper. The drawing would benefit from re-matting.

This ink drawing is 17 x 16 inches with the frame. Titled Horse Show on the back, there are myriad depictions of horses and stylized, mostly male nudes engaged in various activities. For lack of a better description I have designated the style surreal. It is signed lower right K Tonny, for Kristian Tonny, a listed Dutch artist 1907-1977. The paper on the back came off, and I have reserved the two labels, which contain important information. One label is from the de Young Museum in San Francisco with a title of Drawing No. 5 and the name Horse Show, which may have been the name of the Tonny Drawing or the exhibit at the de Young. It also lists the Marie Harriman Gallery as the owner. The other label is from the Marie Harriman Gallery, E. 57th St., New York City and also lists the title as Drawing No. 5. The gallery was open from 1930-1942, so the Tonny drawing probably dates to about that period or slightly earlier. The full name of Marie was Marie Norton Whitney Harriman, which combines three last names of very prominent art collecting families. Marie was the wife of Averell Harriman, who was a governor of New York State and an ambassador to the Soviet Union and Britain. The inventory of Marie's gallery formed the basis of Averell Harriman's art collection, much of which is now in the National Gallery in Washington, D.C. This Tonny drawing has an impressive provenance and is in good condition, no damage.

This watercolor painting is about 9" by 6", or 15" by 11-3/4" with the frame. The image depicts a classically draped mother with a child on her back. The faces are attractive and gentle, and the composition is spare but excellent. I have not found a signature on this piece, which is obviously high quality. I would estimate that the picture dates to about 1890-1910. The condition of the image is very good. The paper is taped to the mat on the back.
