Measurements: TOTAL LENGTH: 25" - EXTENSION LENGTH ONLY: 8 1/2" - SLIDE: 5/8" x 3/8" x 1/4" - TOTAL WEIGHT: 23 grams

This type of long chain had many uses for the Victorian woman. Using a watch pin, the chain could be used to hold a lapel watch. At its full length (with or without the extender), the chain could be used to hold a lady's lorgnette or, less commonly, to hold a hand warmer or muff during the cold weather.

The entire chain is Victorian...

Measurements: INTERIOR DIAMETER: 2 1/2" - EXTERIOR CIRCUMFERENCE: 7 3/4" - LIPSTICK: 2" long x 1/2" diameter

Measurements: 1" x 1" x 1/4" - TOTAL WEIGHT: 1/2 oz. of silver - unmarked but tested and guaranteed as described.

I love these earrings! They are a great example of the understated elegance Mid Century jewelry - a deceptively simple, abstract linear design - arrows? snakes? directionals? other? The dark lines are either black enamel of decorative oxidation.

In very fine condition except for one dimple at the end of one arm...

$245.00

Measurements: WEIGHT: 16.8 grams of sterling silver - RING SIZE: 7.8 - TOP OF RING: approx. 1" x 1" 1/4"

This is an amazing Mid Century Modern ring - VERY labor intensive to create as each moving bead is individually anchored via a wire "stem" to a mesh screen set into the top of the ring - probably as many as 100 kinetic beads. The movement of the beads is subtle - not frenetic or jangly.

In fine and undamaged condition. Easily able to be sized...
