Lizard figures were very popular with the Edwardians and Victorians, often appearing on desk blotters, encircling vases, painted on china, etc. - and on jewelry. These two brooches date to the 1920's - 1930's or they could be pre 1900. The open "c" style catch suggests the age...

Blackbird Antiques
$145.00

Measurements: WEIGHT: 1.5 troy oz. - 3.25" long including both hooks x 2.25" greatest width.

Clearly hallmarked.

Worn with the long "tongue" hung over a belt or waistband. The smaller open hook would hold one chatelaine object - my first thought was a chatelaine purse or a ring of housekeeping keys.

In very good condition with strong three dimensional detail - somewhat Medieval in design.

Photographed unpolished.

Blackbird Antiques
$265.00

Measurements: 2" diameter with a domed profile of 5/8" set into a silver full cup bezel with original "c" clasp. Pin stem appears to either have been replaced or re-soldered.

A gorgeous portrait of a wealthy woman of the court or a courtesan wearing an ornate kimono covered in gold moriage representing threads of gold. The hair ornaments are also golden.

Beautiful life like detail.

The only damage I see is a bit of moriage bead work missing from the frame surround.

Blackbird Antiques
$215.00

Measurements: 18" long excluding the watch swivel 8.7 grams of sterling silver

The price of $215 is for the chain ONLY; not the heart which is listed separately in my catalog.

This is an exquisite chain with a number of delicate, very detailed design elements.

The six center links are each set with a marcasite.

I am dating this chain to the late 1900's.
