Each earring is ~1" by 1". The age is unknown, probably 1940-50s.
A rare necklace from the Deco period that I've had in my collection for many decades. The central pendant is set with many faceted pyrites or Marcasites snowflake design set like Georgian buckles were into a circular red piece that looks like Carnelian but it is I believe an early celluloid, however, I never had it tested...
An Arts and Crafts copper fob with a coral colored cabochon and accented with coral colored enamel.
Measures 1 3/8" across and 2" high. Fine condition with a minor bend in the top. Dark patina contrasts nicely with the stone and enamel. Would make a wonderful pendant.
Classic Arts and Crafts period design.
Amethyst? No. Glass.
Gold? No. Gold fill.
Do those facts mean this lavalier is any less lovely? No!
This charming lavalier is both antique and eye-catching. The stone is amethyst-colored glass and the metal is gold-fill. The lavalier is not marked, but the 20" gold-filled chain bears the maker's mark for Bates & Bacon. The lavalier is 1 1/8 X 3/4", not including the fresh-water pearl dropper. Circa 1900.
A very cool pair of hand wrought bronze erotic pierced earrings attributed to Pal Kepenyes.
Measure 2 1/4" long including the shepherd hook and 3/4" across.
Each earring is unique. Very sculptural and with lots of detail.
This spirited fixe gryphon clutches a protective shield with clawed feet. His tail curls through the fanciful edges of the shield. Altogether a delightful companion to ornament a jacket or other garment.
The trombone catch is a replacement but the old-style tube hinge is original. The 1 1/2" X 1 1/2" pin is marked FIX and is Art Nouveau in age, circa 1900.
This very Victorian pin is gold fill set with two rose-cut red pastes and one cabochon ‘turquoise’. The pin is 1 ¼" wide with a central ball element that is 3/8" in diameter.
Applied circles of wire rope ornament a vertical, rectangular bar. A hollow ball dangles from two chains; another chain connects the pin to the stickpin. This device preceded the safety catch to prevent loss of the pin.
The C hinge and double C catch are replacements...
A great example of Finnish Modernist design, a bracelet made of bronze with a central rectangular brutalist element by Hannu Ikonen for Valo Koru, Finland.
The bracelet measures 7" around the inside and 1" wide. Has two hooks which hold securely. Also has a safety chain with an additional hook closure. Marked Made in Finland on the inside.
Fine condition with some minor scratches and tarnish. Has a minor ding on the backside.
Nice contrasts of layers and textures...
A vintage bronze brooch or pendant with a nude figure around a brown swirled agate.
Has 'fingers' which hold the stone in place. Measures 3" long and 1 1/2" across. Has a secure rollover clasp and also a small bale so could be worn either as a brooch or on a chain. Can be worn up and down or sideways as a brooch. The bale is behind the figure's knee so the figure would be crawling down when worn on a chain.
Well constructed, interesting design.
Here is an intriguing pair of pins from the Art Nouveau era. They feature a woman’s face flanked by flowers and their hair is greenish! I have been unable to determine what the metal is, so assume it’s not precious. They measure 1-1/4” x 1/2”. The pin stem assemblies are old, but they may be replacements. Circa 1900. The photos are part of the description; please examine carefully. Thanks! Shipping, handling & insurance within the USA included.
A sassy dragon curled around a large amethyst-colored brilliant (yes, it’s glass) hides the hook that turns this into a watch pin. He has a dark red cabochon eye (probably glass) and a colorless brilliant in his mouth. It is unmarked and is 1” by ¾” in size. The pin is vermeil (gold over sterling). It has a round hinge and eared clasp, suggesting an age of late 1800s or early 1900s.
Here is a fun locket made from white metal. It is engraved on the front in a stylized pattern, and plain on the back. The inside has some scratches in the metal. The photo rings and celluloid are not present. It measures 1-1/4” x 7/8" and the cool paperclip chain is a bit over 22". The back has a few dark marks which might clean up. Generally, a handsome Victorian (or possibly Edwardian) piece. The photos are part of the description; please examine them carefully...
