Vintage Sterling Silver Art Nouveau Style Bird in Trumpet Vines: This stunning sterling brooch features a stamped design of a charming bird clinging to trumpet vines. The design is lovely, with curled leaves, berries and morning glories in a frame around the bird on branch. Although crafted in the art nouveau style, the clasp dates this as a later piece. The brooch measures 3 1/2 by 2" and is unsigned, but acid tests as sterling silver. I have left the original oxidation on the brooch, I will leave any polishing to the new owner. The rollover clasp is tight and secure, the brooch in excellent condition.

Antique William Kerr Art Nouveau Sterling Gilded Griffins and Rhodolite Garnet Pendant: This amazing art nouveau sterling silver pendant from renowned New Jersey silversmith William Kerr started life as a belt buckle. A rare design, this repousse' piece features extremely detailed gilded griffins. The ornate pendant is embellished with three sparkling raspberry rhodalite garnets. Both the gilding and gemstone accents are unusual for his pieces. This pendant started life as a buckle, but along the way was converted to a pendant. I have worn this to rare reviews. I don't believe the bale is sterling, but I feel this piece deserves a more ornate bale anyway. The pendant measures 2 by 1 3/4". It is signed with the hatchet mark of William Kerr, sterling, and the inventory number 368.
