Based on the detailed workmanship and research, I believe this to be a rare Victorian masterpiece of high quality Cannetille fiigree silver with a gold wash that has had the clasp replaced with a rollover C clasp that dates from the mid to late 1800's The Peacock motif was popular during the Victorian Era, a favorite of Queen Victoria. The feathers are a symbol of good luck and well-being throughout Asia and most of the world. The Peacock also represents Immortality.
Excellent condition, this figural measures 1 1/2" tall and is 3/4" deep. The plumage measures 1 1/4" tall and 1 5/8" wide. A 800 mark is stamped on back and there is a smaller mark below the 800 that I cannot make out. This is a rare filigree masterpiece!
This comes from a dear friend and a truly exceptional lady. While having an antique shop, she has collected various antiques and unsigned and signed designer pieces for the last 40 years and has an incredibly discerning eye for quality as well as uniqueness. The extensive nature of her collection has meant that she has not worn most pieces more than once.
It is my distinct pleasure that she has chosen to pass her extensive collection on to me and I will be keeping some special pieces for myself. I will also be offering some for sale and please know that with each piece comes a wonderful legacy of a very special lady that makes this jewelry all the more special.
Her collection includes some of the most desirable designers; Boucher, Carnegie, Ciner, DeLizza and Elster (aka Juliana), Eisenberg, Haskell, Hobe, Lane, Philippe for Trifari, Schreiner, Schiaiparelli, Vendome, and Weiss as well as Coro, Coventry, Kramer, Krementz, Lisner, and Trifari.
Numerous pieces are book pieces and many had matching pieces so many demi-parures are available. I acquired so much of this jewelry that I will be working on offering it in the store for years to come.
There are additional antique and vintage jewelry pieces in the various Studio Categories and other collectibles, books, art, glass, china, kitchen, home decor, and retro pieces in the store.

The doll I received isn't the one from the picture. Only one flower on her hat and missing tags. For $100 I expect what I paid for. I am incredibly dissapointed and will not shop with seller again.
Received item exactly as described. Very happy with my purchase, thanks.
What a great seller. Took extra photos for me and emailed them. Very easy to communicate with, and I got exactly what I expected-a beautiful vintage dress for my son's wedding, that was in excellent condition.
Very special gift for myself
