|According to Lillian Baker's 100 Years of Collectible Jewelry. Screw backs were introduced in very early 1900s and were popular 1908 to 1930s. After 1930 the ear clip was introduced and it became popular though with lots of wearers the screw back remained the favorite. The pierced hook type were the first and were usually hollow gold, then came the wire post type. The latter were after 1900.

EU326 Price: $16.00
1910-1930's Brass Leaf Bracelet. The look of gold yet, it's brass and beautifully made. Two Repousse Leaves, each with a brass bead attached to depict berries. Slave bracelet links connecting on either side, measuring 7-1/4". Keep in mind the scan isn't the best on this, because the center to leaves are domed and not flat so it curves to the wrist. Measures slightly over 7-1/4" x 1-1/4" wide. Excellent condition.
BU133 Price: $33.00
1910-1930 Silver Floral Cobalt Blue RS Bracelet. Most likely Czech in origin.

The setting is stamped brass with an Etruscan design surrounding the cab. Measures 1-3/4" x 1". The bail is not original to the piece and there is no chain. Very good condition.

NU754 Price: $20.00
1910-1930 Two Sided Butterfly Wing / Moth in Glass Pendant. The setting is silver and has not been polished. On one side is a mother with dried flowers with a background of butterfly wing and the reverse side is the eye of a large wing of either a moth or a butterfly. This measures 1-1/2" in diameter. The chain is not original to the pendant... it is a box chain of sterling silver which also has a darkened patina. The chain measures 20". There is a scratch that you feel but can't see on the reverse side of the pendant, otherwise excellent condition. These are getting harder to find in great condition. Many of the butterfly or moths are broken up inside the case. This one is perfect.

NU745 Price: $69.00
1910-1930 Art Deco Carnelian and Half Shell Filigree Choker. The setting has a worn silver washed finish over brass and the paperclip chain has lost most of the silver finish. I believe the chain is copper based. Carnelian colored glass cab bezel set in the center of the rectangular filigree setting. On either side is a clam shell half faux pearl and on the ends are carnelian cabs. The choker measures 15" which is small. The chain could very easily be replaced for a larger neckline. The five filigree pieces are in very good condition. A totally wearable and beautiful rare piece. The center filigree piece measures 1-5/8 x 1-1/8. It does look like someone might have added the spring clasp since that hasn't lost the silver finish.

NU741 Price: $70.00
1910-1930 Double Sided Moth Encased in Glass Pendant. This is a very beautiful and hard to find piece. These particular butterfly pieces were made in England as far back as the late 1890's. This one has a circulation of the early 1900's. This piece is in very good condition for its age. The pendant is made of silver metal (not tested for sterling - no markings). Double sided glass encased - there are two lovely moths with dried flowers . The whitish background appears to be silken flax as you can see individual strands that look like course hair. One side a yellow moth and the other side brown butterfly. The chain is not old and has been added. Fine sterling snake chain measuring 20". The case that holds the moths is 2" x 1-1/2". Very good condition.

The pendant measures 1-3/4" in diameter and the chain is 18". Very good condition.

NU727 Price: $52.00
1910-1930 Art Deco Molded Periwinkle Blue and Crystal Choker. Most likely from Czech. I believe the brass bar links once had enamel but there are no traces. There are four molded glass flowered beads in a periwinkle color. One each side of these molded glass beads are clear crystals. The clasp is a screw type barrel. Measures 15-3/4" long. The beads are about 13mm. Findings are all brass. Very good condition.

NU340 Price: $42.00
Most likely these are Czech in origin... but there is no marking. These are molded glass beads in various shapes...they remind you of walnuts in the color and design. In amongst these pretty molded beads are Brick colored beads in various shapes. This measures about 16" and is in excellent condition. Spring Clasp.
NU149 Price: $46.00
1920's Deco era Pink Beads of
various shapes and shades of pink at the end of opalescent
pink beads. This is a SHORT strand and only measures 13" and so it's
most likely for a young lady or very small neckline. I'd highly recommend
restringing...and at that point you could lengthen this with a few nice
spacer beads. These beads are gorgeous and sure to please any bead lover
and well worth the effort of restringing. (If you want restringing,
I can recommend someone to do it for you...so don't worry about WHO
can do this. The cost will be reasonable too.)
Here is a
closeup of the BEADS.

The case measures 2" x 1-3/4" and it too is in very good condition with a small amount of fraying on one of the corners. A rare find!

PU087 Price: $37.00
I've researched and researched and the only thing I can come up with for this pin is that it is a low end Art Nouveau item. According to Roseann Ettinger Popular Jewelry 1840-1940, "The new craftsman preferred the use of glass and semiprecious stones. There became a movement for man against machine and an apparent craft revival." The stone in THIS pin is identical to the stone shown in the pin in her book. I welcome any further information you may have to offer in regards to this stone. The pin is handset in an openbacked silver metal. It's pronged all the way around. C Clasp. Measures about 1" by 1/2" high. Excellent condition.
