Vintage Brass & Copper Pillow Shaped Handbag with Blue Velvet like lining. I don't know the exact age of this item even though it was sold to me as being from the 1920ís Flapper Bag. My best guess is that it is imported from India because I've seen many items from that country that implement brass and copper beautifully in the same fashion as this purse. Itís truly a beautiful bag and is being sold on it's own merit; no claims are made to the age of this. It opens in the center as the pictures will show. The decorative hinged clasp is a lovely filigree design that closes over a loop, as if you would use a padlock on it. The hinge on the back is more rectangular in shape and also has an intricate floral filigree design. The inside of the purse is lined in a soft, dark material; similar to velvet. This measures 5" W x 4" H and 2 1/2" D (Inside). 21" L (Chain) From Shoulder To Top Of Purse. Nice for the evening out or special event.

Since 1839, J.E. Caldwell Company has brought the finest in luxury goods to Philadelphians. As guild jewelers, this staple of the Walnut Street shopping community offers diamonds, handworked gold, gifts, stationery, bridal registry, repair service, and Philadelphia memorabilia. This is a reverse carved lucite paperweight in the original box. My best guess is 1950's. The carving is a hummingbird getting nectar from a flower. There is a fence inside this that makes it look 3D. Very beautiful piece and would make a unique gift. 8 sides. 3-1/4" x 2-1/4" x 7/8" deep. Never used in original box.

Founders Week, October 4 through 10, 1908 celebrated the 225th anniversary of Philadelphia's creation. Visitors to the week's festivities could send postcards to friends, purchase souvenir medals, and enjoy a meal at Dennett's Lunch Room, all while viewing an image of Penn's Treaty. This is one of those souvenir medals! William Penn on the front and on the back is the signing of the Penn Treaty with Indians and White Men under a tree. It reads: 1683 Founders Week 1908 and above that Penn Treaty. Really nice old piece. I don't know what the metal is since it's covered with 96 years of patina and I don't want to clean it. Measures 1-1/4" x 1". A great item for the collector!

1950's Lucite Bar Set - Mint in Box. I don't know much about bar tools so the picture will have to tell the story as to what their uses are.

Three red lucite flowers are embedded in lucite. Excellent condition. Great gift idea!

Now this is a BELT! I fell for this one big time...it's beads and baubles just accent any plain dress or outfit. It ties with a leather cord...and I can't tell you what material they used to make it...but it is a grey shiny cord twisted around the leather. Dangling and draped in size are tassles of wonderful clear lucite beads, black faceted beads, silver, grey and even faux pearls....and in the very center of them hangs one longer than the rest...a real sparkly faceted crystal! Very unique belt that will dress up anything ordinary! One size would fit many in this case...for the leather is very long and ties for the smaller waist. Very good condition.

as the compact only brushed in a different direction...outlined in solid
goldtone...a Rose, A king in a half moon and a Thief of Baghdad type
