1 Here is a copper set by MATISSE. The design is the Barcarolle pattern. This set is said to be an enamel set in the blue to harmonize with flowers. In any case, it really is a nice set, and one that isn't a common design.
2 This photo shows how the little copper cages lifts up off of the blue enamel wing shaped piece. Just to show you that the cage thingie isn't glued to the enamel.
3 The set is in excellent condition with no chips or damage. The necklace is 16 1/2" from the hook to the end of the extender chain. The clip earrings are 7/8" square. The earrings are both signed, but not the necklace.
4 Here is a sterling silver fish bracelet with a toggle clasp.
36 A gorgeous black onyx and sterling bracelet made in Mexico.
38 The bracelet is 7 1/2" long and has a push in clasp. It is 1 1/2" wide at the widest point.
39 The mark is really hard to read and if someone has a good idea of the maker, I would love to hear it. Across the top, it says "plata 935" and the center looks to be "CMS or CHB". The bottom last letters are "ualagro". Possible an M in the front.
PRICE 150.00 "Hi...love your jewelry....plata simply means made of...." View Comments...
40 This is a great sterling ring. It has a citrine colored cabachon that is bezel set.
41 The ring is a wide one. It is an inch across the top, and 1/4" at the narrow point.
42 Size 8 1/2. #16
43 This is one gorgeous flower pin. It is sterling with a gold wash over it.
44 The blue stones are a deep aqua, and the reds are brilliant reds.
45 Marked sterling, the brooch is a whopping 4" tall.
46 This is a darling little Mexican sterling brooch. It is marked Taxco 980, which is almost pure silver.
47 The brooch is 2 1/2" long. In excellent condition.
48 This is a sweet Mexican sterling donkey. He is 2 1/4" tall, and looks like he is napping on the job.
49 The mark is sterling on the top, and Plateria, and then GIL, which must be the silver shop. Below that Guad, for Guadalahara, and Mexico.
50 This is a sterling brooch with a gold wash and a huge red stone in the center. Look how that red stone reflects from all the ribbon surfaces.
51 Side view. There is a chip on one corner of the stone, but it is under the prong so not noticeable. Has to be mentioned though.
52 Marked sterling, the brooch is 2 1/2" across, and the center red glass stone is 3/4" square.
53 This brooch is soooo gorgeous! It is Mexican sterling with a 14K gold wash on it. The vermeil is in excellent condition. The brooch was made in Mexico probably for Marcel Boucher. Although it does only have the "Mexico" mark and the 14K mark, it is pictured on page 270 of Costume Jewelry 202, and attributed to Parisina, a company using designs by Marcel Boucher. A world war II item.
54 The stone is glass, and the brooch is marked Mexico and 14K.
56 A fantastic Trifari sterling set. A bird brooch and earrings to match. All sterling, with a gold wash.
57 Patent number 159923, done by Alfred Phillipe Aug 29, 1950. The earrings are marked with a pat pending, and Trifari. Evidently the patent came through in 1954.
The bird is just over 4" long, and the earrings are clips, they are 1 3/4" long.#1
58 These earrings are sterling and also by HOBE. They are a similar design as the previous brooch.
59 Just under an inch across, the earrings are screw backs.#4
60 This is a fine old piece of butterfly wing jewelry. The blue part is the wing, and the palm trees are painted. The silver paint at the bottom accents.
61 The pendant says England, sterling, and PI202213. The best we could come up with, is that the item was made in America about 1878 and sold in England. This would explain the absence of the British hallmarks.
65 This is a copper, brass and enamel set that is marked MAYA MEXICO. I looked up the name and didn't get much more than that. In any case this brooch and earring set is very nice.
66 The earrings are screw backs and marked with Maya Mexico. The earrings are 2 1/2" long and have a double sided drop.
67 The brooch exactly coppies the earrings. That drop is double sided. The brooch is 4 1/2" long. In very good condition, you will love this set.
68 PRICE 110.00
69 Here is a wonderful sterling brooch for you. It is large, it is a smooth....soft silver, it is sterling, and it is by a favorite designer. NAPIER.
The brooch is 2 7/8" tall and 2 5/8" across the top of the bow.
70 In wonderful condition even though it is a Vintage piece. There is some tarnish on the inside of the dangles on the ribbon, but it isn't noticeable unless you are looking for it. I would probably clean it if it were mine, but I want to leave it to the new owner to make that decision.
71 The signature on the back is partly worn off, but it is there. See the photo.
72 MATISSE copper and enamel maple leaf brooch in a dark teal. Excellent condition.
73 No chips, scratches or damage of any kind on this nice leaft.
74 The leaf is 2 1/2" across. The pin stem works well.
75 PRICE 40.00
76 These sterling earrings are only marked 925, so I don't know the artist. They go well with the following sterling brooch.
77 The clip earrings are quite large, and they are dimensional. Sort of like puffy pillows.
78 No condition issues...these earrings are in excellent condition.
79 The earrings are 1 3/4" long.
80 PRICE 12.00
81 I'm calling this one a sterling moon....or....a sterling empanada. Take your pick. :)
82 See? Doesn't it look like an empinada? It is thick...about 3/8".
83 The moon/pie is 2 1/2" long and it is in excellent condition.
84 No tarnish, just a nice soft patina, and no dents or scratches.
85 The piece is marked TB -91. And 925. So it is a Taxco artist, last name starts with B. The 91st to be registered.
