1 3/8" diameter x 1/2" dome height
No damages or repairs.
Intricately designed to be very three dimensional.
Top diameter including handles: 22" - not including handles: 14" Base diameter: 10" Height: 11"
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...
Closed: 9.5" Open: 29" with a diameter of 2"
People refer to this type of telescope as maritime. I was unable to find any maker's mark to verify the telescope's intended usage. I do know that the barrels are brass, the protective slide cover over the eye piece is intact, and that the optics are excellent - with the original lens cap.
The largest barrel is covered with a burled walnut veneer.
Dating to the Edwardian era - possibly earlier.
13" base to top of the brass cap; base diameter: 5.5" with a 10" harp (which is easily changed.
Note that the lamp has been rewired with fabric wound cord and that the base has been replaced. The original base was also Chinese style, but was badly damaged.
The colors (warmer than shown in the photos) are a pale yellow - almost custard - background with light green dogwood flowers and light brown branches...
10" tall x 10" top diameter x 6" base diameter.
No dings, dents, or wear to the silver plate.
Gorgeous repousse lip with a floral and scroll design.
Lion head handles are wonderfully detailed and fierce!
Use as a wine cooler, and ice bucket or a base for a floral centerpiece. Totally elegant no matter what the use.
Polishes beautifully. Will work with the best of any sterling table setting.
*****A kind internet dealer told me that these "beads" are umbrella tips. You decide!
4" tall x 6 1/4" top diameter x 2 3/4" base diameter
An interesting piece of vintage kitchen cookery with wonderful advertising, instructions, and clear illustrations.
Undamaged even though 100 years old! No chips, cracks, hairlines. Only the string closure is missing (and according to the instructions you can use soft bread as seal if you don't have any string).
1 3/8" x 1 3/8" x 3/8" depth
A very three dimensional brooch dating to the early 1900's - without hallmarks or manufacturer's mark, but guaranteed to be both silver and gold.
An equestrian, horse themed design of horse head, riding crop and lariat/rope. With a wonderful sparkly eye.
2 1/2" tall x 5 1/4" square base x 3" square lid with 2" diameter original bronze/glass inkwell insert.
No damages, dents or repairs. Unpolished condition.
A beautiful addition to any Arts and Crafts Movement desk.
4 1/2" tall with an oval base of 1 5/8" wide x 3 1/8" ** Note that the top of the piece is slightly angled.
Each round opening is 1 1/4" diameter.
I believe that this piece is Scandinavian though the sticker is missing from the bottom. The round "shadow" of the sticker is just visible.
When I purchased this piece, it was being used for pens and pencils...
