Forties ring and old brooches

This is what I brought home after a flea market visit in a really hot and stormy day.

I had one of these antique brooches from a while ago. I have found another one for less than 50 cents and in a better shape, with the paint still intact. I think they look nice together. DSCN9430DSCN9432DSCN9435DSCN9437

I also found this plastic mouse with rhinestones eyes (from the sixties, maybe?). Very cute and in a good shape.

But my favorite find is this strange silver ring from the forties. The red and pink rhinestones are really sparkly and I enjoy watching its funny shape on my finger.

New old things

I went to the flea market this Saturday and it was a very good day for finding some of my favorite things.

I wanted such a celluloid bangle for a long time now, I kept seeing them online but never at the flea market. This one is a bit too large for me but the other vintage plastic bangle keeps it on my wrist. I really like how the paint faded in soft pinks and greens. DSCN9186DSCN9188

This beautiful antique souvenir silver brooch has a damage to the first “e” from Venice, but it was to interesting to leave behind. And I have very nice memories connected to Venice, so it makes sense for me to wear it. The dangling letters are more sparkly in reality than in these photos.

This silver wolf pin looks a lot like our dog Souris.

This antique brooch is not silver, although it really looks like silver and it is very detailed. I like the snakes and the tiny jade figure (Buddha?).

I don’t know if this woven wallet from Peru is vintage or not, but it’s really nice.

My favorite find is this big amber ring in an Art deco setting. It has some interesting hallmarks, that I didn’t have the time to research yet. I keep staring at the luminous stone these stressful days.

Pocket watch and ephemera

These were some finds from a quick visit to the flea market yesterday. A notebook from 1909 that has illustrations for each month and two ethereal old photos.

A gold plated old chain.

A tiny knot ring that goes so well with my Art deco sapphire eternity ring.

And a pocket watch case, without the watch itself. I plan on fixing the cover that is not closing anymore and use it as an oversized locket. It is silver and very beautifully engraved and I really like the small character with a bird. The other silver watch case, with the acorn and leaves, is an old flea market find also.

Watch chain

This very Art deco watch chain is a recent flea market find. It’s made of silver tone metal and glass and I think it’s from the thirties. It’s too short to be worn around my neck and too long for a bracelet, but I have lengthened it with a silver chain and now it is a very pretty and detailed necklace.

Some new finds

These are from yesterday. I have found an Art deco pendant that is very similar to one of my rings. The pendant has a hematite stone, one of my favorite stones. It is very well made and heavy. DSCN0309DSCN0308

The bow ring is from the forties, I think. I have showed it to my mother and she says she remembers this pattern as something that older ladies would have in her childhood in the late fifties.

The other ring has two hallmarks, but I didn’t find anything about them yet. I’ll update later, when I’ll have the time/patience to search more. But it has such a beautiful, luminous stone, like a pool of sunset light.
