Intricately designed to be very three dimensional.

This chalice form is hand hammered with applied top and base rings. The top edge is decorated with square and round repousse plaques which have been enameled (some enamel "as is"); the round plaques are centered by semi precious stones: moonstone, opal and mother of pearl.
In "as found" condition except for having professional conservation done on the base ring...
1.5" tall x 3/4" long x 3/8" with two parts of the original "tape measure" ribbon.
Glass is signed "Schiaparelli/France"
5 1/2" tall x 6" base diameter
This is an elegant design for a chamber stick - reflecting the classic designs of the Arts and Crafts Movement.
The metals used are brass and copper...
5 7/8" long x 1 1/4" at the widest point. Lenses open to 4 1/8" wide.
Gorgeous Nouveau/Edwardian design of scrollwork, leaves, and gadroon beading. With a tight closure. However, spring opening is slow - so that one needs to give the lorgnette a small shake to complete the opening of the lenses.
Clearly marked "sterling."
The silver case is undamaged and without repairs. Only slight surface scuffing consistent with age and usage - easily buffed off...
1 1/4" diameter
A "sweetheart" locket showing a handsome Victorian couple with lightly tinted rosy cheeks. She is wearing a cameo; he is wearing an amazing bow tie? with stickpin. There appears to have been a third woman (notice the gloved hand!) who didn't make the final portrait.
The back of the case shows silver under the gold vermeil. I believe that the wear to the back of the case was created as people tried to open the back - which does not open...
Measurements: 4" total length including the dangles, 1 7/8" at the widest point, 3/4" diameter watch face/case
The watch is clearly marked "Tourneau" and is in working condition (with second hand sweep).
I am not sure how to describe the unusual watch pin except to say it has foliate scrollwork, a bow, a lyre shape and is topped by a starburst.
All of the stones appear to be original. None missing.
NOTE: There is an old repair to the back which appears to be gold...
9" tall; 6.5" x 4.5" at the widest points with the rectangular base measuring: 4.5" x 2.5"
This is one adorable figural bank - marked with the French word "DEPOSE." Judging from the wooden shoes, she appears to be an apple cheeked Dutch girl on market day.
The bank is without cracks or repairs, but does have one corner in the back with a 1/8" chip missing. Also, small flakes of paint are missing - not enough to detract from the overall appearance...
