Measurements: 7 1/4" total length - 7 fully faceted brass/amethyst glass charms. CHARMS: 28 mm x 20 mm. WEIGHT: 2.5 ounces.
Dating to the 1940's, this is a boldly designed "charm" bracelet in very good condition with no repairs and only the slightly irregular shape of one charm bezel which might be considered a damage.
The bead surround to each brass bezel is similar in style to the current designs of Stephen Dweck.
Measurements: 2 1/8" x 1"
Clearly marked "Mexico" and "silver" - with a tight barrette closure which will hold hair securely.
An interesting etched design cut into the center of the silver. Also, a pair of 8mm cabochon genuine amethysts.
Photographed unpolished, but the silver will polish beautifully.
Measurements: TOTAL WIDTH: 3 1/2" - TOTAL LENGTH: 3 1/4" - LARGEST HANDBAG: 2 1/4" X 1 7/8" - SMALLEST HANDBAG: 7/8" X 5/8" - BAKELITE HANGER: 2 7/8" - WEIGHT: 2 oz...
Measurements: Length: 16.5" of navy blue celluloid chain with 6 brown celluloid charms - each approximately 7/8"
Each charm is also "scrimshawed" showing intricate line detail. The detail lines are colored in navy ink; except for the megaphone which has red detail.
The closure is a celluloid toggle - very secure and unusual...
Measurements: 20" tall x 4.25" depth x 7.75" wide
Guaranteed as Art Deco (1930's) vintage.
Metals: steel "arms" with solid brass ball and cast iron center support. The metals are solid; not plated, and have been lacquered to preserve surface finish.
No manufacturer's mark.
Cast iron log rest back braces are in good, usable condition.
Graceful, sculptural form in the best of Art Deco design.
Measurements: 22mm diameter with a 12mm diameter watch face - original 29" ribbon/sterling/enamel watch "chain"
No maker's name, but clearly marked "935" and "Swiss"
In working condition; no replacement stones. The marks which appear to be chips in the enamel surface are clear flakes not cutting into the black enamel...
Measurements: EARRINGS - DROP 5/8" x 1/2" - LENGTH FROM TOP OF WIRE: 1" - LENGTH OF WIRE: 1 1/2" - TOTAL WEIGHT: 2.4 grams
The paste drops are a combination of "diamonds" and "rubies" - all original and all foil backed; set in silver vermeil.
The long kidney wires are 14kt gold - probably later replacements.
I am dating these earrings to the mid to late 1900's, although they look Georgian.
The ring is set with matching "ruby" paste stones in an early gold filled prong setting...
Measurements: 6 3/8" x 3" x 3/8" depth
Weight: 41.1 grams
Clearly marked with the Shiebler "S" with double wings and the word "sterling" - also the number 9597.
The gold wash (vermeil) over the silver is in good condition considering the age of this pin tray. Silver shows through at some of the high spots, but disappears when the piece is polished...
Measurements: 4 1/4" long with Art Nouveau design of flowers and leaves produced by the Adams Manuf. Co. in 1905.
The metal is silver plate over brass.
The name on the spoon - Eurtrophia - is the name of a horse breeding farm in Ohio. (The word, eutrophia, refers to nutrition.)
I believe the spoon is a souvenir spoon from this equestrian farm, but that is only my best guess.
Perhaps it was a souvenir of a turn of the century spa/health farm which focused on good nutrition.
Measurements: Each clothespin is 1 1/2" long and about 1/4" diameter with a hidden spring steel catch to hold the cloth securely. WEIGHT: 8.5 grams including an 8 1/2" silver chain.
I am dating this set of clips to the 1930's - 1940's.
Very good condition without damage or repairs.
Referred to as "bib clips" to hold baby's bib in place; though some creative women use them as sweater clips.
Or take the set apart and have clothespin earrings.
Measurements: 1" x 1 1/4" x 1/4" WEIGHT: 8.1 grams
This locket is a good sized heart with a tight hinged closure and a simple design of machine engraving typical of Edwardian jewelry. While the locket is gold filled, the design also holds a small 2mm square of 14kt white gold centered by a small diamond (tested as such and guaranteed).
The gold is in good condition except for a bit of wear on the back near the hinge...
Measurements: WEIGHT: 1 oz. of sterling - LENGTH: 7 1/2 inches
In very good, undamaged condition with no repairs.
There is a date charm of 1958 and a silver nickel charm dated 1960.
The themes represented are equestrian with a terrific 3 D horsehead/horseshoe charm; music and ballet dance, cats, Providence, RI, etc.
I think of charm bracelets as very individual diaries which can, with a little imagination, be "read."
