The woven style of bracelet is all 14K gold. The flip top of the oval opals consists of a large center opal with six surrounding and four small diamonds one in each quadrant. The watch is in good running order and for a retro collector this would be close.
This charming doll in an unusual outfit has an olive green skirt as opposed to the blue shown in the photo below. There is a top covering her bosom that almost looks like feathers and is very finely woven. In her hair there is a hat of crimped fabric attached. Her arms legs and feet seem to be attached. The doll is apparently unmarked and I have no idea as to who the maker is. The eyes are blue, they open and shut and there is painted eyelashes and eyebrows.
Stick type BonBon dishes are not common in cut glass. This is in perfect condition, no chips or cracks, the weight is good and this was found in a very good cut glass collectors estate in Cincinnati. The brilliance of the cut glass bulls eye designs on the sides of the stick are very well shown and almost have a reflective prism effect.
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.
This Indian made bracelet in silver has distinctive markings that probably a collector of Indian jewelry could identify. The quality is good and the feel is one that would be comfortable to the wearer.

The bezel setting of this ring is beaded and the side mounting has evenly spaced decorations. The overall effect is of cool elegance and is not normal of western motif.
Tourists years ago liked to bring home trip momentos as we all do today. In Germany, factories produced high quality pitchers of cobalt blue backgrounds and were able to use prints for decorative scenic points on the front. This pitcher is marked Jonroth Made in Germany for E. E. Butland Plymouth Mass. The condition is perfect and the scene is of the Canopy Over Plymouth Rock.
