It is so lovely to find early Australian jewellery from Rhoda wager, and here is a very beautiful and rare signed Rhoda Wager silver brooch dating from the 1930's that measures an astonishing 9.2cm in length. Rhoda Wager was one of Australiaâ€™s leading jewellers of the early 20th century, producing beautiful pieces often in silver that had a very natural flowing style as can be seen here in this brooch. Made in sterling silver, it is set with mabe pearl in the centre. Also known as blister pearls, these are produced as a section of the oyster shell itself, rather than from an irritant inside the oyster which produces a traditional pearl. The lovely lustre on this mabe pearl is still so vibrant and accentuates the silver beautifully. Measuring 1.7cm wide at the centre, the reverse side is signed â€śWagerâ€ť and this is really a way that you can wear a piece of Australian history that is not only important, but equally as beautiful. This is a lovely and hard to find signed brooch by the famous Australian artist Rhoda Wager. Stock# ES8220 Maker: Rhoda Wager Circa: 1940 $Sold

There is something so nice about holding a genuine antique pocket watch in your hand, and here is a very stylish gents antique Waltham pocket watch made in 1917 that is in superb condition and running perfectly over 100 years later. Made in a rolled gold case which measures 50.5mm by 71.3mm to the top of the bow, is in excellent condition and has a nice crisp engine turned design to both sides. Rolled gold was a technique that started during the Industrial Revolution in the 19th century and was made by rolling a sheet of gold over a base metal. This allows for a solid sheet of gold to be clad to the metal which can easily be polished and engraved as opposed to gold plating which is done via electricity and is not as strong or long lasting. The dial is all original and so pristine and displays traditional Roman numerals with the sub-seconds at the bottom and is so easy to read at any time of the day or night and has no cracks or damage. Inside is a lovely 15 jewelled movement which has just been fully serviced, keeps perfect time and comes with our twelve month warranty. This antique pocket watch would make a perfect gift for that hard-to-buy for person in your life and will always be such a wonderful conversation starter.
