The center of this Lovers Knot Ring is a genuine foil back rhinestone that adds a lot of sparkle to the top. This is a period type of retro ring that people wore to show that they were with someone. The lovers knot had good meanings during the mid 50s and early 60s.

This center table was originally used as a photography prop for taking photos at Knaffl and Brother Studio in Knoxville TN in the late nineteenth century.The marble is white with some grey figuring and the wood appears to be a white wood such as Poplar or Fir and is faux grained with the Rosewood design. This is all original. There are 4 old repairs, the structural condition is excellent, and this is a table that could hold any lamp or sculpture that could be placed on it. The shaped top makes for an interesting appearance to the table and the original faux graining is mostly intact. Shipping will vary depending on where you live.

This couple of children are dressed up for a wedding both wearing light green hats and white clothing trimmed in gold. Behind the figures stands a pineapple urn the symbol of hospitality for a new home. The back is undecorated and was meant to be placed against a fireplace wall. The late Victorian appeal is undeniable and when one sees the happy faces of the couple, they almost want to wish them a happy wedding and life together.

Art Deco exudes sensuality. The wearer of this could easily capture a room with her ice blue satin dress as she slinks down a stairway. Every head will turn. The bracelet is in excellent shape, no damage to the stones, the plating is in good condition, and ready to wear. For a retro or vintage jewelry collector, this would be ideal.

Unusual brass shell vase for that conversation piece youve always wanted. 8 shells fused together form a great desk accessory for perhaps holding pens, etc. This appears to be made from metal and lined in the bottom with plaster to weight the grouping for standing straight. Overall, this is a very unique item.
