This is a little copper cuff that has a step-and-repeat pattern of diamond shapes and lines etched into it. It is curved in a convex shaped to give it more depth and volume when worn. Although it looks substantial, it is really very light and comfortable. My estimate is it is circa 1970’s. It is in good vintage condition with some very minimal wear shown. (You can tell the condition from the photos). It measures 7” outside circumference with a 1+” opening. It could be worn by a woman or a man with a small wrist. It would look great with other bracelets.
This lovely little bracelet is adorned with atylized leaf with tendrils and berries ib it. It a very well crafted, but has not markings, so I can't be sure that it is sterling. It measures 5-1/2" around and it about 1" wide at the widest point. This bracelet can be adjusted a litte
“Miracle” is the trade name of A. Hill & Company LTD., of Birmingham, England, which started manufacturing jewelry in 1946 and is still the leading designer of jewelry in the Celtic, Irish, and Scottish styles today. Each piece is authentic in terms of evolving from actual historical and archaeological information. Jewelry from as early as AD600 have been found that has been used to preserve the design and character of the old Scottish, Celtic, and English legacies. This brooch is designed with a large blue stone that was probably intended to emulate chalcedony. It has a mounting that is decorated with zigzags and arrow points. It is a very authentic design as are all of the Miracle pieces and probably is Scottish in origin. It is marked “Miracle” on the back. The pin and rolling catch work well, and the brooch is in excellent vintage condition. It measures 2-1/4” X 1-1/4” and is convex so that the back looks like it is scooped out.

DESCRIPTION: This Art Deco copper brooch is a simple, yet elegant design. The background is a circle of copper with two partial circles offset in the center, which are raised to give the brooch added dimension. Copper jewelry was very popular especially in the 1950’s-1960’s, and this is probably circa 1950’s. The brooch measures 1-3/4” diameter. There are no markings on the back. The clasp works perfectly and the piece is in excellent vintage condition. This is a very handsome piece that looks especially good on darker shades.
This bracelet is very old and made of brass with a simple design of incised lines. My estimate is it is pre-1970. It is quite large 1-3/4" across the outside curvature. Inside diameter is 2-5/8" and the inside band is 1" deep. It has some heft, weighing 95.3 grams. It is very old, although I don't know the exact age. It came from a Nomadic tribe in the Middle East and was handcrafted by an artisan and is well made and is in excellent vintage condition. It is a very striking and showy bracelet and could be worn alone or with other bangles.
This bracelet looks like one from David Yurman because of the classic ribbed design, gold and silver, and accented by a faceted black “stone”. It looks very expensive and is substantially made with a strong spring for the clamper action. It measures about 7” inside circumference and is 1-1/4” in front, tapering to ¾” in the back. It has a faceted black stone that is probably plastic. The bracelet is really classic in design and classy in presentation. It is truly striking.
This is an unusual brooch from about the 1960’s that has many layers of leaves stacked on top of each other. Because some are have texture and patina, they contrast with others that have smoother finishes. Each of the 9 leaves has notched edges that fall gracefully over each other. It is in good vintage condition. The pin back has been replaced, but it works perfectly. It measures about 2”X2”. This piece would be great on fall colors!
This little cowboy is such a great example of the copper art of the ‘50’s from its “tough guy” expression to the bowed legs. He is really almost a cartoon character with his expression and simple design of the figure. The details of his six guns, kerchief, six-gallon hat perched over his eyes, and details on his chaps make him a very charming figure. The pin is pressed and formed to slightly curve outward to give it a fuller dimension. He measures 2-3/4” tall X ¾” at the widest point. Copper is one of my favorite metals and the contrast on fall fabrics looks especially nice. He is an enchanting one to collect and keep.
This versatile necklace is 34” long and can be wrapped around your neck more than once to make different looks as you like. Although it is not very old, it is a vintage style of black jet beads and dark grey pearls. This is a lovely necklace that looks antique and has a lot of warmth and charm to it. The “LC” tag identifies it as Liz Claiborne.
Unusual is the word that comes to mind about this necklace. It is obviously very old and has green glass beads intermixed with silver ones. I am guessing that this is probably Czechoslovakian glass and the period is 1930’s. Some of the silver is worn and you will probably want to replace, but it is so different that I think it is worth preserving. The center green glass bead is a cube and marbled colors of green, sepia, and gold. The other smaller green beads are tiny shapes that look like little bows. I am pricing this for the beads only because the silver pieces are not in good condition. It measures 24” long and has a barrel clasp.
1950’s Copper Earrings with Movable Hearts Shiny copper earrings from the ‘50’s had a scalloped edge and mounted in the center is a movable dangle that looks like a heart. These are quite old, but in very good condition. They even have the original lacquer finish on them that has held up well. From this era, they are, of course, screw backs. They are somewhat of an oval shape that is 1-1/4’X 1”. The dangles are about ¾” long.
