    hi folks

    2 other pieces i bought from the same charity as the amber

    the glass beads have a missing clasp part which should be an easy fix as the connecting parts are metal

    the cloisonne has a few missing of the double links
    has a mark on the inside clasp

    any info on these will be a great help

    Beads are, I think, Czech. Sommerso technique, twenties into thirties.

    Bracelet is in a satsuma style, I think Japanese.

    absolute bargains.

    It does, it might be as early as Meiji period.

    Unlike most Japanese pieces, someone signed it! The Czech beads are iris glass colors and I'd bet they're older than they look. The clasp looks more modern but the glass matches the beads. I wouldn't be surprised if someone scored those out of the back of a warehouse and put the necklace and clasp together after WWII.

    these must have come from the sme lady who donated the other pieces (same shop)

    think the turquoise coloured ones are glazed faience pottery beads ?

    red/pink glass ones have a sparkly gold inner on some

    blue one marked west germany

    That faience looks more like turquoise matrix.

    i was only just thinking that obb, really stumped on that one

    dunno if the construction of the necklace rings any bells

    They do, but they're not. You can see where the glaze didn't quite cover. That said, they look like they're on copper; I'd have bagged them so fast you wouldn't have seen them blur by. Copper girl here!
