We have some mystery jewellery and would love your help!
Meet our small unknown figure, a piece of jewellery given to us by our friend Pearl. It is so well made that we know it must be genuine ‘vintage’, which means over 20 years old, and we need your help, working out what it is, so grab those thinking caps!
It is not a brooch, there is a loop behind the head (see the picture below), so we think it would be part of a necklace….
- We are hoping this blog post on our Jewellery Mystery will allow us to reach out to our pals worldwide! Sass, in the comments, suggests it is part of a ‘Mother and Child’ jewellery piece. We have not managed to find an image yet. If you find one let us know.
Here are the details of the mystery jewellery figure, and we are hoping you have a mum or family who might be able to help.
- 2.5 ins/6 cms high
- We believe – Brass
- A loop at the head (soldered) and possibly a faint off mark/word E (?)
- Tapering sinuous figure shape
- Possibly one of a pair – the arm curls into a hook indicating possible attachment to another figure/element.
If it is valuable we intend to donate the sale proceeds to charity. We at Dash Kitten are curious about its history, as it is well made and intrigues us enough for us to play at detectives!
Can you help? Let us know in the comments!
