The well-painted floral motif on this premiere piece of Prussian China would be of interest to any collector. The Late Victorian appeal is very obvious here.
The floral and foliage design in cutting of this pair of candlesticks is almost intaglio in type. There is a rolled upper edge to this pair of candlesticks and the work reflects in the highly polished surface.
Nice set of salt & pepper shakers with a nice geometric design. Six sided and almost diamond shaped, each piece has bird in a cage graphics and gold shaker tops.You could almost say that these are Art Moderne style, no makers marks, the bird is shown in a cage, that is square and one that is a heart shape on a possible necklace, stars, and the gilt tops have a really good look.
The hand painting of the leaves of holly and the red berries is very attractive on this creamer with a very stylized handle. This is a great Christmas accessory that could be used many other times in the year.
This absolutely iridescent pearl with a diamond attatched in the center features a fern leaf custom made mounting wiht engraved foliage band all the way around. The ring makes a fashion statement and is one that could easily be in Tiffanys or Cartier. The mounting is 14K yellow gold.
Signed by the painter A. Pini for Ginorin the creamer is a really pretty white floral blossom with green foliate background the gilded handle has a very shaped design at the point of attachment.
The brass of this inkwell is simply flowing in design and shows many of the Art Nouveau influences no makers mark but quite well crafted.
The iridescence of this irregular shaped pearl is absolutely gem quality and for those who love unusual shapes this would be a charming piece. The mounting is 14K yellow gold, this is a custom made piece, the elegance is here and the entire piece is very much one of quality.
Someone close to a hundred years ago went to Milwaukee. Wisconsin and brought home an interesting souvenir. The pink roses with green leaves are well scattered around the pitcher on the front side and the handle is a gold dusted twig form handle. The back side has one center rose. The marking on the base is a grey/silver half moon color and the raspberry color luster trimmed band around the top adds to visual interest.
This Ambrotype of a seated gentleman has been touched up with rouge on the cheeks and he is shown with his left arm resting on a draped table. The image is one of nostalgia and Victorian period interior.
