Edwardian GOLD Jewelry Lot - 01
Every piece in this lot is either goldfill or gold plated, and all of them date to the Edwardian period (Circa 1901 – 1910) or prior.
- Ketcham Mcdougall pocket watch safety brooch - Manufactured in New York, probably during the early 1900’s, this piece is either goldfill or gold plated brass, and was used as a safety chain for either pocket watches or spectacles. The reverse side has a fully functional brooch pin, and is stamped “Ketcham & McDougall, New York, Pat. Feb. 03’ and Filing April 28, 1910”. The retractable goldfill chain does not retract, but after opening the piece, I found that all internal components and the spring are intact – this would be an easy fix for any jeweler. The fine gold chain is approx. 18” long, and the body measures 1” in diameter.
- A pair of Edwardian clip earrings with what appears to be a coat of arms motif. The reverse of each earring is stamped with a capital letter ”R” – I’m not sure if this is a designer’s mark or an indication of the gold content. The earrings are in perfect condition, and measure 1” square.
- Pair of ?” diameter gold plated Krementz cufflinks - Founded by George Krementz in 1866 in Newark NJ, the company originally manufactured men’s jewelry, and started making women's jewelry in the 1930’s. This pair of cufflinks is stamped “ Krementz Made in U.S.A. Plate”. Both Cufflinks are in excellent condition with no worn spots or damage.
- Pair of ?” diameter gold plated Krementz cufflinks - This pair of cufflinks are each stamped “ Krementz Made in U.S.A. Plate”, and one of the cufflinks has a very minor dent, and neither of the cufflinks shows any worn spots.
- Pair of gold plated cufflinks unmarked with minor burnishing – They are oval shaped, and measure ?” by ?” in diameter, with three ornate rings designed along the edges. These cufflinks are in fully functional, wearable condition.
- Gold plated Edwardian or Victorian era stickpin with Sterling silver pin – This antique stickpin has a faceted reddish purple stone or piece of glass inlayed into the head. The pin itself is sterling silver, and the centerpiece lays in a gold plated setting, The piece is unmarked, but I am positive that it is gold plated. This stickpin dates from the early 1900’s or older, and the ornate gold plated setting surrounding the focal point has some small dimples.
- J.M. Fisher Company Goldfill locket – Signed “JMCO”, from the J.M. Fisher Co. of Attleboro, MA., this goldfill locket dates circa 1900 – 1910, but could be older. I cannot find a gold filled mark, but after researching the piece, I’m sure it is gold filled. The piece has a very very small indentation on the reverse side, and is otherwise in excellent vintage condition. The locket opens to hold a photograph, and the locket measures ?” in diameter.
- Single Victorian or Edwardian cufflink – This cufflink unfortunately does not have a match, but it would be a perfect piece to use for assemblage jewelry. It appears to have a worn down gold coating over bronze? The ornate ovular cufflink measures ?” by ?”.
