Beautiful blue opalescent center or fruit bowl with detailed pressed decorations of foliage that looks to be cattails, leaves, stalks and flowers. This bowl is in excellent shape and the blue coloring is wonderful. Only a slight chip on base that is not noticeable at all unless picked up and inspected closely. One method of telling the difference in modern and old opalescent is the amount of fire in the edges and this piece has blazing fire in the sides of the glass.
5 branches with lions heads at center shaft not marked but appears to be Edwardian. The candlelabra personifies elegance and is in mint shape. No markings are visible but this is very high quality silver and could easily be sterling.

An interesting shape of alternating colored ribbons of pink and white in a vertical pattern with a grape vine twisted handle, clusters of grapes and twists of vines off the sides. There are 2 places that have damage to the twists of vines otherwise the surface is intact. The details of the modeling on the grapes and veining on the leaves is very much evident in the surface. The handle is intact and the effect is definately Victorian.
An interesting mounting of gold filled leaves and jeweled dotting along with a carved shell crest above the cameo. The lady is shown facing right with a flowing gown at her shoulders. The shell carved figure is well detailed and has no surface flaws. The pendant is not with a chain and the back could easily be adapted to be used as a pin as well as pendant.
