Vintage Fascination No. 126

Welcome to another edition of Vintage Fascination.  We enjoyed the holiday weekend and I hope you and your family did too.

Today I’m sharing some vintage jewelry and a few other niceties.  I didn’t find it all last week but accumulated it over time.

A small black lacquered hand mirror handcrafted by Otagiri Originals of Japan found its way into my cart.   After some research, my mirror is one part of a nesting mirror set.  The other part of the nesting mirror set would have some pretty artwork.  It was less than a dollar so I really can’t complain.  A trademark for “Hand Crafted Otagiri Original” label was registered in February 1979.  Trademark information indicates this was first used in 1970.

In fact, this bracelet was a find last summer while we were on Tybee Island.  I didn’t find any thrift stores on the island but a Goodwill was close on Johnny Mercer Blvd.   In comparison to the Goodwill stores near me, it was small.  Naturally, I was able to find a couple of things.  This NRT Silver tone double link chain bracelet caught my eye.  I loved it immediately.  So it came home with me and is a nice souvenir of the trip.

I have a thing for rhinestone brooches.  This one just spoke to me at my favorite local thrift store.  So I added it to my jewelry collection.  The bonus is that it is also a pendant though I probably will never use it as one.  Unfortunately, it does not have a trademark.

My daughter found this porcelain and gold tone metal pill-box.  The top is porcelain accented with painted flowers and the bottom is lightly textured marked “Made in Japan”.  The gold-tone case has a secure snap closure.  It is a very pretty piece.

Daisies are one of my favorite flowers so when I saw this enamel daisy brooch it was love at first sight.  It is a Weiss gold tone brooch of white daisies with a yellow center in the shape of three interlocking circles.  Albert Weiss founded his costume jewelry company in 1942. Weiss excelled at floral and figural brooches and earrings.  Though much of  Weiss’s work was with rhinestone collectors prize the company’s work in enamel too.

    Aren’t you the lucky lady, must have a good eye Sharon to spot these treasures., I rarely look in jewelry cases at Goodwill or our local thrift store which has jewelry, maybe should start paying some attention to them. You found some lovelies, enjoy. Would love to find some of vintage flower brooches.
    Hope you had wonderful holiday weekend

    Sharon, I’ve spent most of my adult years collecting. Then there comes a point when one starts eliminating, which is a shock! As my daughter says, “there aren’t any roof racks on a hearse.” No doubt, my offspring will bring a dumpster or two to our home!

  3. Your collection is so pretty!

  4. Great finds Sharon! I love vintage jewelry and the rhinestone brooches and enamel daisy pieces are two of my favorites too. I recently went to an estate sale and the lady had collected jewelry for more than fifty years. She had storage containers just full of vintage jewelry and drawers labeled with each color. I found so many great pieces there. She was a true collector and while I had bought them to resell, I have already worn several pieces! Kathy

I love to hear what you think.
