W. Silvers Stunning Inlaid Bird Cuff-Navajo? Who?

This is a beautiful, sterling cuff bracelet signed W. Silvers. Does anyone know anything about this artist? Is this a Navajo piece? Not marked Sterling. Is it older than 1960s? Any help is appreciated and thanks. Silvercrown http://img.inkfrog.com/pix/jamielee1/303.jpg http://img.inkfrog.com/pix/jam...

Tom, thanks. I really thought that first letter was an "O", but can see now that it's a not very clear "D". I appreciate the information.

Cheese Picks or Something Else?

There are eight of these little, Sterling objects. They are sharp on one end and have a decorative top. The shaft is a bamboo design with a little hook on the shaft. They are from Japan. The overall length is 2 5/8". We thought maybe they were cheese picks, but are confused by the little hooks....

Hankie Holder

A friend has told me that she has seen these described as "hankie holders". The hankie is held by the little pincers at the bottom and the loop end is hung from a chatelaine. Just thought I'd pass this info along.

This object looks like a letter opener, but it has a very sharp point. It is 10 1/8" long. It is English Sterling, hallmarked for Sheffield with a date mark for 1911/1912. The maker is Atkins Bros. Any idea what this is? Thank! http://img.inkfrog.com/pix/jamielee1/038.jpg http://img.inkfrog.com...
