I have been adding jewelry to this vintage Pennsylvania Dutch Mixed Nuts tin for some time and thought it was time to list while I can still close the lid!
There are many items in this grouping. The majority of items are in wonderful condition and ready to wear while a few are suitable for re-purposing.
There is a lot of jewelry here so I will try to touch on all items but if you have questions about a specific item, just ask!
There are two pins/brooches in the black jewelry boxes. Pins are silver-tone metal (I could find no silver markings or id on them). I purchased these at a large jewelry auction several years ago and the auctioneer stated the seller purchased most of the jewelry on QVC and indicated that’s where these two pins were purchased.
There are 3 gold-tone necklaces. The longest one is stamped Korea on the clasp.
There are 2 silver-tone necklaces with attached coin holders (no coins). Very pretty chains but I could find no markings.
The gold color chain with multi color round and leaf shaped rhinestones is a “fix” for a broken piece made by prior owner. The “pendant” was originally a pin – and a very, very nice one at that, made by Kramer – but the pin and clasp have broken off back. So it could be enjoyed and worn, someone attached a round jump ring to one end, threaded the gold-tone chain through it and presto! a rather unusual necklace.
There’s a silver-tone necklace with a heart pendant covered in colorful rhinestones. If you look closely, you’ll notice the necklace has hearts also!
There are 2 ankle bracelets – one is gold-tone metal, the other is gold-filled.
There are earring “parts/dangles” that are gold-tone and black beads. These are from the 1970s when making your own earrings was so popular. They are made to simply slip onto wire hoops.
There’s a silver-tone cuff type bracelet – could be silver but I could find no markings.
There are 10 tie-tac type pins (one is a piano).
There is a little manila envelope that has a broken faux pearl necklace in it along with a card with string. Apparently someone was going to repair and didn’t get around to it. Also included is a tiny plastic bag with some seed beads in it.
There is a matching pair of hair clips/barettes with red rhinestones – very pretty.
There are 3 pendants – cameo, ace of spades, and little round one with photo of Clark Gable in it.
There’s a 3rd place medal on a red, white and blue ribbon. Medal is copper color and probably is but no markings.
The 2 black pieces are Bakelite – both have lost their pin backings and the round one has lost its cameo.
There are 9 pins/brooches (owl, dancer, flag, bugle, etc.). The bug is a single earring and the bible is a little plastic charm.
