This is a very unusual jewelry set from the 1950s. The bracelet is a chrome cuff bracelet with two large bell flowers on top each of which has a gray topaz glass center and then there there are dark and light gray faceted rhinestones in the middle and allalong both sides. That top flower design is 2 1/2" x 1 3/4" - it will definitely be noticed. The bvracelet closed has a 2" inside diameter. The matching earrings are clips an each one of them is 1 1/2" x 1"...
This set is well known to collectors. Some insist that they were made by Selro, but I don't think so - at least not this one. It is very unusual to find an entire parure - so I was excited when I saw this one and I have had it for quite a while so that I could enjoy it, but I think it is time to send it on to someone else who will enjoy it. The necklace is a choker 12" long with a 3 1.2" EXTENDER. The figures are approximately 1 1/2" tall which makes it that wide in the front...

This is a darling Vintage Lucite Scottie Dog Pin Brooch. It is reverse carved with painted highlights, along with big googly eyes!

It is approximately 2 1/2" x 2 3/4". There are no makers marks.

This is my rare find of the year - a Max Neiger Egyptian Revival brooch from the 1930s. It is pictured on the dust cover of the book, "Egyptian Revival:Jewelry and Design" by Nichols, Foote and Allison, and it is also pictured inside the book. For those who do not know the story, the Neiger Brothers were in business in Gablonz, Czechoslovakia, in the 1930s and they made a lot of pieces with Egyptian and Oriental Designs...
I havenever seen another necklace even close to this one in style. The seller thought it was amber, but I think it is copal - a much newer amber that mainly comes from Africa. It is 24" long and the large pendant is 1 1/2" in diameter and 1/2" thick. Mounted on top of this pendant is a beautifully carved Buddha - very detailed. The beads are elongated and the necklace is about17" long. One of the beads in the back unscrew from the one next to it to make a clasp...
