A wonderful example of bakelite carving on this small, yellow clip! The clip is triangular and is carved round two edges (see complete description on my web site - www.gillianhorsup.com) The colour is not quite right in the picture - it is the lovely colour of yellow amber - and is often mistaken for amber! Even the clip on the bake is an elaborate shape! It could, of course, be worn on a fine chain round the neck for a change! It is from the Art Deco period. Ref: 2339 B103/12 Price £65.

I was so lucky to get this pair of 1920/1930s long filigree earrings with green glass beads drops. They are now so rare! They had their tops missing so I have had plain silver wires put on. (I am lucky enough to have a wonderful jeweller!). They have green glass stones and drops (known as Peking glass) and amber glass stones and marcasite. They measure over 3 inches. Would love to keep them! Ref: 2336 B82/38 Price £120. www.gillianhorsup.com
Here's the Lea Stein panther brooch. It's quite a long brooch - at just over 4 inches. This one is in stunning black and white - which is very in at the moment! Full description on my web site - and some of the other Lea Steins I have in my shop at the moment. (I never manage to take photos of them all - and Unicorn (who I share with) also has some. Price £55. Ref: 2330 B102/26. www.gillianhorsup.com - at Grays Antiques in central London.
Here's a pair of great dangley earrings - probably from around the 1950's. They have lots of mauve glass beads with a white metal filigree dome. The dome has mauve glass stones set in. There is a small clip fitting at the top. (see full details on my web site - www.gillianhorsup.com) Price £75. Reference 2326. I love earrings and always have a wide selection in my shop in central London.
This brooch is good fun! It's a champagne glass brooch in gilt metal with faux pearls. If the base is level, the brooch would lean to the right - as if the drinker has already had one too many! It has white paste stones decoration too. It is in good condition - apart from a slight kink on the pin - which does not show or affect anything. Full details on my web site - www.gillianhorsup.com - price £68 ref: 2328 B102/19. Just one of many attractive brooches in my shop at Grays Antiques in central London.
Here's a simple Art Deco necklace in red glass and chrome. So easy to wear! 1930's - probably German. I am not able to attribute this necklace to the Jakob Bengel factory. Other manufacturers made similar items. I always have a selection of Art Deco necklaces in my shop at Grays Antiques - if you are able to pay a visit. This one is £98. Reference 2327 B100/39. www.gillianhorsup.com - visit my Facebook page for my blogs about jewellery - Gillian Horsup Vintage Jewellery.
A pair of Royal Crown Derby vintage china flowers clip earrings. They are very fine china with a brass clip back. The colours are vibrant and are mainly blue and cream. As far as I can see these are not damaged. The edges are irregular so it is difficult to see - but there is certainly nothing that could be seen when wearing them. I always stock a good selection of vintage clip earrings. Many of my customers do not have pierced ears. If you can get into Grays Antiques to try them on - so much the better! Ref: 2324 Price £45.

A French marcasite double fur clip brooch. Fur clips has two sharp prongs instead of clips and were used on a thick material. The brooch comes apart into two such clips. It has French markings. All the marcasite stones are present and it is in good condition. I always love to have a selection of macasite in my shop at Grays Antiques - but the earlier pieces are not so easy to find. Ref: 2323 B100/33 Price £120 - www.gillianhorsup.com
A white paste vintage double clip brooch - leaf shaped - probably from the 1950's, but could be earlier. As is usual with these, the two dress clips separate from the frame to form two independent clips. My white paste photograph is not that good - the double clip is actually bright and in very good condition. I always have a good selection of double dress clip, white paste, brooches in my shop at Grays Antiques in central London. In fact I have a good selection of white paste vintage jewellery! Ref: 2322 B93/23 Price £75. www.gillianhorsup.com
This beautiful bracelet consists of nine segments - half white paste and half emerald green glass baguettes - set on a white metal. Unfortunately it has no maker's mark - which is a shame! It is in very good condition - and measures 7 x 3/5 inches. It has a safety chain. I always have a good stock of white paste bracelets in my shop at Grays Antiques but find it much harder to get good coloured paste. Ref: 2321 B89/3. Price £120. www.gillianhorsup.com - where you will find other pictures.
