FIGURALS  

 

 

 

 

 

VICTORIAN Whitby jet hand carved cigar holder with carved nude woman in seashell with fig leaf, circa 1870, 4-1/4". It is carved entirely out of jet, and the hollowing out of the pipe part is amazing in itself. Jet can be brittle and is not easy to carve at all.
Her top or right leg is totally free and you can see light between it and the shell and left leg except at her foot, where it touches again. The rest of her body is visible at the front and both sides, but attached to the shell at the back.
Her neck is free from the shell on 3 of 4 sides with only the very back touching and a hole almost invisibly drilled behind it, done on purpose but for what reason I cannot say. Her face is lovely and detailed, and even her fingernails show.
This is the work of a master carved, and my friend Katy says carving of this caliber would usually have been done for a competition in which the carver would want to show off his best skills. Pieces like this are not often found any more.

       NOAH'S DOVE... like the one that flew from the ark to search for land, signifying good tidings, a tiny pin circa 1900. This tiny turn-of-the-century treasure is a sentimental favorite for me, as it was in the very first box lot of jewelry I bought when I was 12 years old.   View   #Q4458

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 and research 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.
