I love all of the pieces.  My favorites are the beaded rainbow necklace and the bracelet with the glass enamel and carnelian glass beads in the center.

I found this site while looking for information on GES. GESCH signed pieces.

[Sold] Splendid paste and sterling German Deco necklace.  It has paste set baguettes and rounds with a central green stone.  The chain is sterling links with baguettes and rounds and has several hidden spring-loaded clasps that allow the chain to be turned into a necklace and bracelet.

The marks are very interesting.  Both pendant and chain are stamped Germany Sterling 935 and there are two other marks--one has the letters KP set at an angle and the other has a central Star of David with the letters E G on either side.  I have not been able to find any information on these marks.

OK, I'm cheating as this is from Austria....  Wiener Werkstatte necklace, circa 1910-1912 (according to Ginger Moro). Made of the most incredibly tiny glass conterie seed beads in this intricate pattern.  Clasp is hidden behind the beaded "cap."  Approximately 46" long when unclasped.

Deco basket necklace, with onyx, lapis, carnelian and chrysoprase stones and bead-set marcasites.  Chain is made of small silver plaques finished with marcasites set on each side.  Signed Germany Sterling.

German Deco-style necklace of pale green bakelite, chrome and channel set rhinestones.  Some of the rhinestones have grayed.  Marked Patented D.R.G. M. 4438525 on one of the chrome pieces.  According to Moro, page 133, DRGM was a German patent mark (meaning Deutsches Reich Geschmacksmuster) and was used on both jewelry or applied to technical inventions.  It was used until 1945.  Thus, the mark could refer to the chrome strips with rhinestones.

"The Perli-Werkstatt, founded in 1922 was known for metalwork, either unadorned or of cloisonné enamel, matte or translucent.  The enamel designs were Thirties moderne, using circles or rectangles of alternating colors.  The reverse side was usually a glossy black enamel, overstamped with "Made in Germany" in white."  Ginger Moro, European Designer jewelry, p 128.

Kollmar and Jourdan
Enamel and rhinestone bracelet

According to Ginger Moro's book,
European Designer Jewelry, p 128:  
"Kollmar & Jourdan in Pforzheim was
another firm which manufactured
dramatic geometric enamelled
jewelry in the Thirties, although
the metal foundation was silver or
silver-gilt, not copper.  A large
factory, established in 1885, it
closed its doors in 1977.

Bracelet is marked with KJAG,
German marks and "Gold Shell."  
According to Caroline Sunday:  Gold
shell means that the bracelet is
made from actual sheets of solid
gold heat processed onto metal,
more gold content than gold plate
(cold processed plating), more than
gold filled (heat processed
layering), but not as much as solid
gold (which is gold all the way
through). Not a lot of gold shell
pieces are out there. It is a very
common process for watches though.
