This beautiful doll was hand made by renowned doll artist Lynda Marx and her husband Alan Marx and is signed as such on the back of the doll on her neck. Every Lynda Marx doll I have ever owned was made with the highest of expertise and of the finest quality bisque. And this is also the case with this doll, who has a lovely fair bisque head, rosy cheeks, mauve shadow over the big, spiral, blue glass set eyes, feather stroke eyebrows, painted nostrils and little sweet lips with a slight curled, c...

I love the antique lamps that were made from these same big faceted glass jewels and ormolu metal work around them so when I saw this little vase, I knew I had to have it! I have never seen one of these done as a small vase before. The pretty jewels are intermittent two sides with yellow and green switched on either side, and two sides with blue and red. There is a thick gold tone band on the top and bottom with chased floral metal work soldered down the sides and across the interior to hold the...

The Georgian comet brooches are always small, like this pin which measures almost 1 1/4” long to what would represent the comet’s tail by 3/4” across what would represent the comet’s head. Many times the Georgian comet brooches resemble a flower with ‘branches’ expressing the shooting star streams of the comet. This brooch’s style was made in that fashion. I have had and collected many different comet brooches, but it is rare to find one set with opaline pastes. The jeweler set ...

This is the very best antique ‘jeweled’ mirror and brush vanity set that I have ever owned. Each of the cut glass ‘gems’ is set in a closed back, saw tooth setting and then soldered into the detailed metal of French flora, garland and bow. Both the brush and mirror are very durable and rather heavy due to all the metal and glass. The mirror is beveled set with butterfly type clips, French bows at the top of both pieces, filigree and embossed metal work all around. All stones are original...

Such a beautiful and rare example of the treasures made for the grand tour trade during the mid-1800s. This pretty little ormolu French center piece has the original blue and clear glass and only found in grand tour pieces where we usually expect an opaline insert. As expected, the metal floral work is quite eloquent, but having the cold painted enameling and faux jewels triple the enhancement of this little garden of delight. The blue to clear glass insert with lovely pointed and round cut e...

I saw the face on this doll and I knew I had to have her! I just loved her snobby expression. A very nicely done Barrois artist doll, a finely painted bisque with set cobalt blue eyes and a nice blond ringlet wig. The head can swivel from side to side just a little. Her bisque shoulder plate bisque is set into a leather body with lower bisque arms, just like the antique. I always look for a true likeness in artist reproductions and the artist did a very good job at interrupting this French Fashi...

An usual hinged alabaster box from before the turn of the last century, this petite treasure has a little brass hand design as a knob for opening and closing the box. The clasped hand motif is very Victorian and something we don't often find on these types of boxes. Then there are two almost 'touching hands' brass embellishments on the top of the lid and one little hand on the lip of the lid. The hand motif was very popular in the Victorian era with two hands to be joined, one of a man and t...

She has the sweetest expression with incredible big blue glass haunting eyes. This artist doll is a very convincing representation of the rare French bebe by Jumeau known as the Triste, or sad face doll. Her pale bisque is a nice contrast to her blue paperweight eyes that have been set, brown feathers brows and painted lashes with a touch of purple shadow on the lids. The artist painted her with pale lips on her open/close mouth, rosy cheeks and she has applied ears (with holes for earrings) jus...
