Stunning Vintage Middle Eastern 800 Silver Filigree Carnelian Agate Bracelet: One of the most beautiful bracelets I have seen in this style, the Middle Eastern influence in this piece lends it a grace and charm all its own! The spun silver work is very fine, each linked panel hand crafted and set with a large deep brick red marquise carnelian agate, beautifully polished and securely mounted in a fancy bezel. The stones measure an inch long by 1/4" wide. The hidden push in clasp gives the bracelet a seamless look, the tongue of the clasp is marked 800 for silver content and also has a blurred makers mark. This bracelet is in excellent condition. The bracelet measures 7 1/4 by 1 1/8".
Vintage Chinese Export Carved Carnelian Agate Lotus Flower Silver Vermeil Brooch: This lovely vintage Chinese export brooch is crafted in silver vermeil. The center stone is a beautifully carved carnelian agate lotus flower motif. The back of the brooch is delicate filigree wire work. It appears at some time the original clasp was stabilized, and this was well done. The brooch has a tube hinge and c-clasp closure. The brooch does test as silver, most likely 800 silver as was commonly used on the early pieces. The lovely beaded edge frames the center stone beautifully. The brooch measures 1 3/4 by 1 1/4" and is unsigned.

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.
