Hi - I wonder if you can tell me anything more about the ring belonging to Major Francis Peirson. He was the brother of my husbands 4th great grandmother and where the family name of Peirson comes from. It was great to see the photo on your site.

A beautiful collection. Does anyone know where such eye miniatures can be purchased. I've been looking for years but gave up some years ago when I could not find any.

WOOOOOOW!!!!! This was better than going to a museum...What a collection. I swear! I would rather buy jewelry than eat....

Wonderful collection! I just have a correction to make for your item "392 Memento Mori enamel slideCirca late 1600s?" - I recognized that this is not just a skeleton but the "Shroud of Turin" showing the linen imprinted with the body of Christ. Clearly it shows all the nail wounds on Christ's hands and feet including the wound on His side and the wounds of the crown of thorns on His forehead. It is shown adored by angels with a monstrance that symbolizes the body of Christ right above it.

You have put together a rather impressive collection of eye miniatures! I've always been interested in eyes more than any other jewery, but they are sooo hard to find. Good job.
|Veronica McCullough | www.greatvintagejewelry.com||Tue, 4 Dec 2007 8:11AM|
Im supposed to be working on my site-but Im rambling thru your fabulous site! I came here curious to know if you know anything about the designer or country of origin of Dunn Jewelry from the early 20th Century. They produced Gold Taille d' Epargne bracelets and lockets mostly. Im wondering if this is Walter A Dunn, and if it was an American firm, and if there is any connection to JR Dunn Jewelry in FL. Any idea ?

Hello, Congratulations! You have many lovely items in your collection. You may be interested to know that I believe the initials on your miniature no. 27 are not E S H, but instead G S H - for Gerald Sinclair Hayward (1845-1926), who was a highly regarded miniature painter of 1890-1920. Also, in case it helps, I think items 55 and 56 were probably painted around 1900 to 1910.

Stumbled upon your amazing collection. Spectacular!! One thing that may or not be true, I've been told that if pearls are added to a piece it often makes it a mourning piece as pearls are for tears. I've heard this from my grandfather who is an antique dealer and auctioneer and has been for nearly 60 years.
|Linda||Tue, 11 Apr 2006 9:39PM|

Is aany of this Fabulous Jewelry for sale????Plesae tell me if/how I can purchase the item described as eorgian eye miniature enameled mourning ring. Neo-classical design with two urns poised horizontally on the shank. The face panel has an outer rim of black enamel with finely looped gold inlay in a continuous pattern. The center chamber features a beautiful painted eye miniature. Inscription on the inside of the ring is too faint to read, but you can make out the date of 1817.
