I found this as a lot of men's jewelry and decided to leave it that way, even though there is a pair of cuff links in the lot that I have seen bring $500 or more. But, I will get to that in a minute. The brown leather box was made in England and you can read its funny saying in one of the pictures...

I have always loved face pins and have a lot of them, some of which were photographed recently for a collector's "Vintage Visages" by Kathy Flood that was just released this past summer. This is one that was photographed for the book.
It is large, 3" x 2", and heavy. There are jewels of different colors, as well as clear crystal earrings. I am not sure who this person is supposed to be, but it is a very exotic looking face...

This is another piece from my private collection that I hate to have to give up -- a Max Neiger Egyptian Revival brooch from the 1930s. For those who do not know the story, the Neiger Brothers were in business in Gablonz, Czechoslovakia, in the 1930s and they made a lot of pieces with Egyptian and Oriental Designs. Unfortunately both of the brothers were killed in the concentration camps during the war, and the company was never revived. So, the pieces are very rare and difficult to come by...
This is another of the face pins that have been in my collection for years. When Kathy Flood photographed the pin to put in her book "Vintage Visages" she called her a "Deco dame in profile with golden chain hair. The face is black flat enamel and the hair and face are all mounted on a decorative metal stamped background. The brooch is about 2 1/4" in diameter and the condition is excellent. She has no problems and no maker' mark. Probably was made in th 1940s.

This is a very lovely graceful old gold filled95 lavalier necklace with a hard stone cameo. The necklace is 16" long and the lavalier drop is 1 1/2" long by 1/2" at the widest part. The cameo is tiny - just 1/2" long by about 3/8" wide.The design is very graceful with flowing lines. I am not sure that this chain is original. It appears to me to be newer than the pendant, but it is soldered on, so it has been there for a while at least...
