A truly whimsical, yet functional brooch with a retractable chain in the back to hold any number of items for the well-outfitted lady. These were marketed in the 1940s & 1950s as “The Paly Pin – A California Product.” This one holds a small lipstick, but would work equally well to hold a dance pencil, small pen, perfume bottle, or glasses (if they are not too heavy). The retracting mechanism is made by Ketcham & McDougall of Orange, N.J. The little lamb brooch is quite cute. Excellent...

Beautiful flower with petals and leaves made of faux tortoise (celluloid?) or nut casing. The flower is suspended on a spring on the end of the hairpin so that it trembles. The flower is about 2 inches by 2 3/4 inches and 3/4 inch deep – very 3-dimensional. The spring attaches to a 3 3/8 inch long two-prong hairpin. Condition is excellent for such an old, delicate piece. One petal has a spot of surface damage and one leaf is partially loose. Not much, considering …

These are all five engravings from The Landscape Album which was published by Leavitt and Allen (New York) in 1860-61. The complete book is rare and collectible. What I have here are the title page and the four other engravings (these with the original tissue leaf still attached) from the book. The book itself was a kind of autograph book or friendship album, with these prints scattered throughout, between pages where friends and family could write their own verse, prose or drawings.

This is a lovely ceramic basket in a pale green luster. It has a cute little putto on one side and a spray of carnations on the other. The decorations are decals, with hand painted gold accents around the cherub. The basket has a highly textured, woodland design. I believe this is 19th century German, but it is not marked. The condition is excellent – no cracks or repairs – but the surface luster has some wear and there is one fleabite chip that is hardly noticeable. Measures about 4 1...
