Description: John H. Peckham Triple Dangle Necklace - Another circa 1915 piece using fancy cut stones and filigree components. Paperclip chain terminates in a latching hook clasp. Center front has a diamond shaped glass stone with a triangular glass stone dangle, and similar dangles on either side. Marked JHP in an oval on the back of the center front dangle. Necklace is approximately 17", with 1 1/8" center dangle. Triangular stones show age appropriate discoloration at the corner and have yellowed somewhat; diamond-shaped stone has fared better, with just a little discoloration at the corners. Triangular stones could possibly be replaced but the original cut is unusual enough that it highly doubtful that you could find the exact same stones for replacement. I tried to get a picture of the table on the triangular stone, which is made up of four different triangular shapes and comes to a slight point at the bottom center. The pre-1930's cuts are quite intriguing and as far as I can find are almost never replaceable. Otherwise, excellent condition, which is quite a feat for such a delicate piece of jewelry.

Description: J. H. Peckham Filigree Link Bracelet with Blue and Clear Glass Stones - J. H. Peckham began business in 1893 and by 1930 his sons had joined the business, according to a North Attleboro, MA historic record. I would guess this bracelet to have been made somewhere circa 1915, making this approximately 100 years old. Set with small clear stones in a diamond shape, alternating with three fancy cut blue glass stones with the stone table diagonal to the corners instead of the more modern cut of being parallel to the sides. Double push-in clasp has a bottom safety that snaps around the clasp, thereby negating the need for a chain (which almost invariably got broken.) 7 1/4" x 5/16". Excellent condition, an exceptional piece.

Description: Delicate Camphor Glass and Filigree Necklace - Accented with small glass pearls and two tiny rhinestones in the center of the pendant and the chain filigree at the center. Paperclip type chain, simple slide clasp. Goldtone, 15", pendant dangles about 1 3/4". I see no flaws.

Description: European Coppery Bead Brooch - Made to look somewhat like Haskell with handwiring and double filigree, this features a trombone type clasp. Center stone is surrounded by copper beads that alternate with rhinestone rondelles that are quite unusual, in that the rhinestone colors are mixed on each rondelle rather than being all one color. Each rondelle uses red, green and blue rhinestones, and I see no stones missing, which is pretty unusual as well. 1 1/4" in diameter, this is for the collector who appreciates out of the ordinary.

Spring type dress clip mechanism; body is potmetal. 2 5/8" x 7/8" at the widest point (top). Wear this at the point of a v neck and watch heads turn. Also pretty on a belt, handbag or hat.

Item: ND3-231

Price: $89.50 US

•••

Description: Clear Rhinestone Dress Clip with Blue Square Stones & ZigZag Edge - This elegant clip is just the ticket for a dark blue v-neck top or to clip to a blue hat or clutch purse. At 2" x 1" it is small enough not to be conspicuous but large enough to be seen. Potmetal setting, circa 1930. Unusual zigazg pattern on bottom edge.

Item: ND3-076

Price: $20.00 US

•••

Description: Chandelier Style Potmetal Rhinestone Necklace - This type of necklace is rarely found and goes so well with the vintage potmetal deco earrings that are so popular and going for high prices these days. This features not only a beautiful central design but a fancy linked chain with a single clear stone set in the center of each link - usually if this type of piece is found it either didn't have the fancy chain or it has broken. All stones appear to be original; many have darkened, as one would expect, on the chain. Spring ring clasp This should fit up to about a 15 1/2" neck. The earrings normally sell in this price range, so this is a bargain even at this price.

Description: Czech Type Dress Clip with Amber Colored Glass Stones - Floral and leaf motif brass brooch with oval glass stones the color of honey. Domed, 2 1/2" x 1 3/4" x 1/2" deep. Clip mechanism works well and is embossed with a design frequently found in this type of piece.

Item: ND3-200

Price: $29.50 US

•••

Description: Pair of Dress Clips with Multicolored Rhinestones - While this is the same design and colorization, these two clips are both set randomly with aqua, pink, gold, purple, medium blue and green colored rhinestones, so the color arrangement is not identical; regardless it is a cool set and much prettier in person. Center of clip is cut out so whatever fabric it is on will show thru. Each clip is about 2" x 1 1/2", large enough so that you could even wear them separately, but coordinate your ensemble - for example, put one on your jacket pocket and one over the clasp of an envelope style purse.

Item: ND3-060

Price: $59.00 US

•••

Description: Czech Type Dress Clip with Topaz Glass Stones - The larger oval stones in this piece are unfoiled glass, while the smaller ovals are foiled; the leaf "veins" are pave set with clear rhinestones; all stones except for the clears are prong set. Brass setting: 2 1/4"x 1 5/8". Even the clip mechanism is artistically done.

Item: NP3-135

Price: $72.50 US

•••

Description: Powder Blue Flapper Beads - This was such a pretty color that I couldn't resist - and interesting to note that the color comes from the string, not the beads! All the beads in this piece are clear, but the blue thread used to string this makes the color come thru and gives the piece a kind of ethereal look. Approximately 60", no signs of pulled threads, repairs, etc. Excellent condition.

Item: NN3-178

Description: Faceted Garnet Bead Choker Necklace with Barrel Clasp - This double needle technique looped design necklace has been restrung as the original stringing was precarious, so this should be safe to wear for many years to come. Original barrel clasp is silvertone. 15".

Item: UN11-331

Price: $49.50 US

•••

Description: Clear Rhinestone Deco Bracelet - Popular circle motif bracelet from the 1930's that is an influence on current contemporary jewelry, this potmetal piece is entirely rhinestone set, using round clears on all the links except for the connecting baguette links. All round stones paste set with baguette stones using kind of a foldover flap to protect the stones. Foldover clasp is set with a single baguette as well. The baguettes show stone darkening commensurate with age, and there are several of the rounds that have greyed as well, but all seems to be original stones with plenty of sparkle left. 7 1/4" x 1/2" at widest point.

Item: NB3-266

Price: $42.50 US

•••

Round stones on strap portion are slightly larger than those surrounding center stone. Wearable length 6 1/2", center portion is 1" wide. One stone bordering the center stone appears to be a replacement but is an extremely good match, otherwise excellent condition. Goes very nicely with dress clips ND3-287.

Item: NB3-286

Price: $125.00 US

•••

Description: Pair of Rhinestone Set Gilt Dress Clips - Gilt (goldtone)settings are much less common than their silvertone sisters; here we have a great pair of dress clips in a cut-out, shield shaped design that is all rhinestone set and slightly domed. At 1 3/4" x 1 3/8", these are slightly larger than usual. Slight aging of stones and metal on the back of the clip mechanisms show that these were worn, not put in a box! Clips have excellent tension, very nice!

Description: Multi Jeweltone and Clear Rhinestone Brooch - One of the prettiest designs of this era, this outstanding piece uses a heartshape carefully interwoven along the center and centered with a jeweltone rhinestone pear (I thought maybe it spelled "Dearest" but there are 8 stones instead of 7).Centered with a beautiful step-cut dark blue stone surrounded by multi colored ovals, the rest of the design is traced with small clears. Set in a dark silvertone potmetal, this measures 2 1/2" x 2". Beautiful!

•••

Description: Deco Brooch with "Flawed" Faux Emerald Cabochon - An interesting transitional mix of deco and nouveau styling, this is centered with a faux emerald cab referred to as "flawed" because of the white stripes to make it look more like a real emerald. The rest of the piece is done in all clear rhinestones set in silvertone. The original center cab on this piece was a light blue faux moonstone, unfortunately it had a small chip out of the edge, and I was not able to replace with the same color; this stone was as close as I could get to an "authentic" color. 2 5/8" x 1 1/4", excellent condition. The green stone is unfoiled and looks better when not on a black background, but the black background makes it much easier to see the cutout design.

Item: NP3-334

Price: $49.50 US

•••

Description: Liberty Bell Triple Trembler Brooch - Potmetal floral with three flower heads on springs, each set with a tiny gumdrop cab in jeweltones. Cut out design is set with clear rhinestones. 2 7/8" x 1 7/8", signed with LB in a bell shape. Absolutely beautiful. The only drawback to this piece is that the original clasp must have been removed and replaced, and a little of that replacement shows on the front (though you would not notice it unless someone called your attention to it. I have priced this accordingly.

Item: NP3-340

Price: $59.50 US

•••

Description: The Nov-e-line "Mar-vel Quality" Hinged Bangle Bracelet - I have only found this mark on Nov-e-line hinged bangles; what exactly is the significance I have no idea. This piece uses bead hand set square rhinestones and two sizes of round rhinestones, with an interesting graining pattern flanking each of the squares. Usual embossed pattern along the top and bottom edges that can be seen if you look carefully at the pictures. This is 5/16" wide, 2 1/4" x 2 1/8" inner measurement. Mild aging of most of the squares and a few of the rounds, but this is in almost unworn condition. Safety chain is original, down to the thumbless clasp. Chain is short, so be sure to unclasp and reclasp when taking off and putting on.

Item: NB3-338

Description: Deco Style Dress Clip in Emerald Green and Clear Rhinestones - Wonderful lines make this a perfect accent for the person who loves Art Deco. These lines are set with small clear rhinestones, and accented with three strips of green channel set squares, one at bottom center and two flanking the top center, with two small clear squares at top center. Cut-out in center can be seen in picture below, where whatever fabric this was clipped to would show through. Silvertone setting, fancy design on clip, which has excellent tension. A few of the small clears have greyed, as would be expected of a legitimate 80 year old piece, but the vast majority of these stones have excellent sparkle. 1 3/4" x 1 1/2" at widest point, nice weight, quality piece. Perfect for the center of that low-cut holiday party dress.

Item: ND3-348

Price: $49.50 US

•••

Description: Brass Filigree Dress Clip with Single Emerald Green Glass Stone - Beautiful filigree in two sections curves over the top of a cut out lower frame, with a single prong set rectangular green stone in the middle. This has a 1920's feel. 2 1/8" x 1 1/2" at widest point. This has a little more play in the tension that usual but will still hold on any fabric that isn't lightweight. Tiny, tiny chip on right hand bottom corner of stone that I didn't notice until I photoed, can be seen under loupe but not in regular observation. Perfect for the drawing room at Downton Abbey, or at your next special event.

Item: ND3-349

Price: $29.50 US

•••

Description: Heart Motif Dress Clip in All Green Rhinestones - Heart shaped leaves set with light emerald green rhinestones grace the bottom and top of this lovely dress clip, with a scalloped border also set with the same green stones. Center has an emerald green dentelle, surrounded by six oval stones in a slightly lighter green - there is a little variation in the greens of the ovals, looks like there might be a couple replacements but they are so close that it doesn't detract. 2" x 1 1/4", good tension on the clip. Brass setting, slight plate wear to clip finding.

Item: ND3-350

Price: $39.50 US

•••

Description: Large Art Deco Belt Buckle in Emerald Green and Clear - Looking for the perfect accent at your waistline or perhaps the back of a denim vest? This great 1930's piece has a double row of emerald green rhinestone squares across the center, with angular lines set with clear rhinestones and nice cut-out sections. Hook and eye type clasp with sew-on loops, potmetal setting, 4" x 1 1/4". Excellent condition, clear rhinestones on either end look to be contemporary replacements. Exceptional pieces

Item: NBB3-346

Price: $47.50 US

•••

Description: 1930's WMCA Belt Buckle with Emerald Green Square Glass Cabochons and Clear rhinestones - Another wonderful buckle that uses square high domed cabochons (I believe these are referred to as "sugarloaf") in emerald green. Four rows of small clear rhinestones separate the three cabochons, and a few clears accent each cabochon setting. Potmetal, with 8 sew on loops. Backside is marked WMCA (White Metal Caster's Association) on both sides, hook and eye closure. Excellent condition, with one clear rhinestones showing some greying. Black marks on back are, I believe, rub marks. 3 1/4" x 1/2".

Item: NBB3-347

Price: $47.50 US

•••

Description: Faux Jade Melon Bead and Brass Oval Necklace - The color of these beads in person is actually more of a softer, minty green, what some people refer to as "spring" green. Double sided brass spacers are actually two separate pieces, done with an open center and oval holes around the perimeter. This is a hand manipulated piece, as the connecting eyes would all have been attached by hand. Spring ring clasp shows some wear, as does one brass link, please closeup. Not noticeable when worn. 15 1/2" wearable length, melon beads are about 3/8" wide at girdle. Very nice wearable piece, this looks 1920's to me.
