A Little Lamp of Some Kind??

This piece is marked "Sterling" on the base of the handle. It has a wick of that goes inside. Is this a little oil lamp of some kind. We are baffled. Thanks. http://i997.photobucket.com/albums/af99/myisrblu1/235-1.jpg http://i997.photobucket.com/albums/af99/myisrblu1/235-2.jpg http://i997....

ID Piece of Victorian Jewelry

This piece of sterling jewelry is a chain, about 12" long, with a baby/beauty pin at each end. Does anyone know what this is called and/or how it was worn? Thank you.

Re: Any info on this artist ? Pictures Included this time.

I surrender...the marks are not the same. Your mark has the LHM mark under the crown that is mentioned in Billy's book. Now, if we could just find out who the heck that is, we might know something.

It's the same mark. Please understand that the same mark, impressed in silver, which is very soft, often vary from one piece to another and do not always look identical.

Re: Any info on this artist ? Pictures Included this time.

I believe this is definitely a mark used by Plata Real. I have attached a link to a pair of earrings from the Trocadero website (earrings are sold, so I though it would be OK). It is the exact same mark, with the addition of the name "Plata Real". http://www.trocadero.com/vintageadvantage/...

Your earrings are from designer Richard Lindsay. Mr. Lindsay was born in Colorado and has worked in Santa Fe, NM for over 20 years. He signs with his initials and a triangle.

Help with 14K Gold Pin Rubies & Diamonds

This is a lovely, 14K (marked 585), pin set with old diamonds and rubies. It appears to have entwined initials, MM? We believe it is late Victorian. It has a very early safety catch and a tube hinge. It has an extended pin stem. Curious about your thoughts as to meaning, origin, or any other thought...
