The English loved to travel around picking up momentos on trips. Many times on trips to Europen or The Continent as they called it, they would buy Belgian Lace and frame it at home. This piece has a really late Victorian look with the rust colored velvet backing and the handmade centurian in the walnut cross bar frame. The condition could not be better and visually, this is a very appealing piece.
Pretty set of orange luster as a primary color with cream luster panels depicting handpainted stylized floral images. Coloring is very impressive and stylized floral images have a modernistic feel and look. One has small chip at edge of base, other has chip to underside of base. Despite these minor flaws both have strong appeal and display quite well. Marked Made in Japan on bottom.
The fan has wooden ribs with a hand painted floral design on black silk. The work is well done and the image crisp clear and tight to the fabric. The fan would be attractive framed.
A well woven rug with burgandy cobalt blue and light colors in a very pleasing arrangement.
The form of the clock is brass and has 2 side columns with a shaped base. The movement is Swiss made and runs 8 days. It also has a built in alarm. This clock would have an elegant cool 1950s traditional appearance to a desk.
The swirl design around a cabacheon set turquoise makes this a very understated elegant stick pin.
The filigree on the sides of this ring is totally open and the engraved design extends all the way around the exterior of the base of the ring. The center bead set stone is recessed with a pie crust edge around the top of the ring.

Beautiful pink satin glass rosebowl with a shell motif has a wonderful soft look and delicate feel. Pink coloring fades from top to bottom in an elegant manner and raised shell decoration is tastefully done along bottom of this excellent vase. No makers mark but pontil mark is present. The crimped top and raised shell motif is really attractive and the color is rich, not washed out as in so many. The shells almost resemble cameos and are in excellent condition.
This Composition Doll has no identifying marks or names. The little girl is wearing a light blue robe. The doll has molded hands and hair but the arms have the only joints. The lips are painted red so it is probably a girl.
