Art Deco Sterling Germany Carnelian Agate & Marcasite Necklace: This lovely art deco necklace from Germany is crafted in sterling silver. The tear drop shaped pendant features a carnelian agate cabochon center surrounded by subtly sparkling marcasites. The pendant measures 1 1/2" long and is just a hair under 5/8" wide. Please note the chain tag is marked 1 20th 12k gf, but the chain looks perfect with the pendant and it came to me that way, so I have left it on the pendant. But again, the 18 3/4" chain is not sterling. The pendant is market sterling Germany.
Vintage Signed Robert Allison Sterling Scottish Celtic Cloak Brooch: Huge vintage sterling ( fully hallmarked with the Glasgow Scottish hallmarks) signed RA ( Robert Allison) Celtic cloak brooch with figural birds and ornate Celtic designs. Heavy sterling, it weighs 45.93 grams. Although the date mark is blurred, based on my research I am confident this piece is circa 1950's. The brooch measures 2 1/4" across. The deep golden center stone ( a huge 20mm) has a star design faceted in the center. Although Robert Allison used both genuine stones and glass, I am fairly certain this is glass as the tiny chips ( visible only through a loop) on a facet edge have a conchoidal pattern and I don't see any of the natural zoning a citrine would exhibit, but it has not been tested. The brooch is in excellent condition, has a full set of hallmarks, and the makers initials RA.
Vintage 800 Silver Italy Etruscan Fob Bracelet Huge Charms: This fabulous vintage Italian 800 silver Etruscan style fob bracelet is one of the nicest I have seen! Five heavy and large ornate charms depend from an intricate woven silver chain, embellished with twisted wire and small flowers. The charms are large, the glass lapis charm measures 1 3/4" long by 3/4" wide. I believe the carnelian bullet is genuine, and possibly the dark green stones, but the others are glass. The bracelet has a fabulous patina. the clasp is fully hallmarked with "hand made Italy, 800". The latch on the clasp is tight and secure. The bracelet measures 8" long, but fits like a 7 - 7 1/2" due to the large size of the links. I can find no flaws in this magnificent jewel of the past! The bracelet weighs a whopping 72.5 grams.

The silver is unmarked, but tests as sterling silver. The bracelet has some heft! A rare and beautiful find for the woman with a smaller wrist.
