This stunning brooch is signed Czechoslovak. The glass, faceted rhinestones are orange and the large center one is a little deeper orange than the rest. There are no missing rhinestones and they are all clear, shiny and bright. They are all handset into metal prongs except for the ones in the flowers. They are glued in. The metal is japanned which means it’s coated in black enamel. The pin on the back is straight and the pin mechanism is in good working order. The black enamel is in great shape on the front. The back enamel shows some wear from age. This brooch measures, 1 1/2″ tall x 1 7/8″ wide. I package all of my jewelry carefully and mail it in a box.
This is an antique pocket watch from 1866. I’ve included some of the research I’ve done on it based on its markings. It winds and works.

The pieces of wood you see in the pic are the tray for the keyboard and below the desk.
This lovely antique radio cabinet was fully repurposed by myself. After gutting out the insides, unfortunately, there were no salvageable parts, I cut 440 stainless steel sheeting and fabricated the top shelf, affixed 2 stainless steel stem glassware holders (holds 8 standard wine glasses) For three bottom shelf, I affixed 2 wine bottle holders, one top, one from the bottom. Lastly, I affixed an old fashioned style bottle opener to the back bar for style & convenience. The front is painted an oatmeal flat that is slightly weathered/whitewashed and the inside bar is a bold mustard yellow. This piece is one of a kind without a doubt and is selling for $60 less than the original price.
A nice old cabinet comes with everything you see in it. The glass is individual pieces in the door. 39 an 1/2 inches across 59 inches tall to the top of the woodwork.
