Basket Motif Jewelry

 

 
BASKETS
have been a favorite motif in jewelry for years. Fashioned in all styles using many different materials, these are a real delight to wear. One style popular in the Victorian era was called the "giardinetti", or little garden. These basket bouquets were small and detailed and were often made of pastes set in silver or gilt silver. Marcasites are another stone used alone or combined with pastes. By the 20th century, glass and rhinestones were used, sometimes in enameled settings. Some were even made in Goofus glass and reverse painted, and in Lucite which was reverse carved and painted. My own personal favorites are the baskets made by Ralph DeRosa circa 1940 (see below). They are multi-layered and use both wonderful stones and enameling to create intricate beauties.

PLEASE NOTE: Regretfully, it is no longer possible to respond to individual questions regarding jewelry history, identification or value, or to offer written or verbal appraisals or opinions. The demand for this kind of information is absolutely too overwhelming for one dealer to fill. 
I love jewelry, but appraising and selling are two entirely different businesses, and I choose selling as my business.

Instead, articles are added on a regular basis to JEWEL CHAT on line Magazine, a wonderful reference for  information on many makers and styles of vintage jewelry.
