This mechanical pencil is stunning! It has a loop to attach to a chain or maybe it was part of a Chatelaine. It measures 2 ½” long when folded up and 4 ½” when pulled out. It’s about 3/8” in diameter. The main body has “taille d’epargne” black lines enameled and “Cloisonne” flowers. It tests as 12K gold, but it may be a rolled gold. (I haven’t filed it to check!) The end still has lead and it writes! It is in good condition, only with a touch of enamel off the flowers. What a wonderful piece of history and so decorative!

These 2 bracelets are wonderful! I’m calling them “Brides Bracelets” because they remind me of the ones from the late 1800’s, but they are probably from the early 1900’s. They have a flap clasp, where you slide one end into the flap and secure it with a top lever that slides sideways. They are, at the largest, 2 3/8” by 1 7/8” or 7” around oval and can go smaller. They have etching and embossed flower design on the top front and the back is plain. The inside of one has the initials RML and the other has RM. (That one has been repaired with a piece covering the L, check out the pictures. ) They are very light weight and so comfortable to wear! They test as 10K, but I believe they are Rolled Gold. These are wonderful old bracelet.

This Locket has me puzzled! It looks very much like a Victorian locket from the 1800’s, but it looks newer when you examine the pearls & rhinestones and the metal is much too shiny. I believe it to be a revival piece. Probably done in the early 1900’s, it still is a fabulous necklace locket! The locket measures 1 7/8” by 5/8” and opens to show two picture sides with the clear pictures covers intact. The top of the locket has a faceted black glass piece with one miniscule chip (very small) and a row of rhinestones & pearls. To tell the truth, I’m not sure if they are real seed pearls or coated glass. No chipping is evident. The height of the locket is ¾”. The book chain is very decorative and is 18” around and is brass. It has a box fold over clasp. The bale is another inch for a 3”drop from the chain (That’s the locket and the bale). The back of the locket is etched with wonderful flowery designs.

This bangle is marked S.O. Bigney Co. That company is from Attleboro, Mass. operating from 1896 to 1946. The center has a large cushion cut glass stone 7/8” by ¾”. The bangle is 7 ¼” in diameter, an oval rather than a circle. It is rolled gold with a testing of 10 to 12K gold. The top of the bangle is 1 ¼” wide and the back is 1 /2” wide. It is hollow in the shank and the back. It has the familiar push button clasp and hinged other side for opening and closing. The front has a wonderful decorative leaf and swirl pattern. I circa date this bracelet as early as 1898 to as late as 1918, when this type of bangle was very popular!
