      What Era and composition? Baroque/Victorian-style Round Jewelry

      Hi, 

      I need help identifying the era in which the jewerly box was possibly made in. Also, what type of materials was used to make it (i.e. gold leaf and medium)?. 

      It has the typical vintage antique smell. Some of the gold is flaking off, exposing an opaque hard material (medium that created shape). It's approximately 10 inches in diameter.

       

      Thank you! 

      Amanda

      Hi Gary! 
      It is so nice to speak with you! Thank you for your response! I will take some better photos and upload to this site and  Google Drive just in case the uploading failed again. Thank you so much again. I have a few more things, I'd like your opinion on. I absolutely love your show by the way. I'm a new collector, (which I know you aren't), but I also love researching things as well. That to me is best part about collecting! :) I'll upload more photos as soon as I am finished taking them. 

       

      Thank you again!

      Hi Mr. Stover, 

      Thank you again for your response. Here are photos of the jewelry box that I just took. Hopefully, they will load. If not, here it google drive link:

      https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BzuDnSgRFSPEQW5UbUtTVzFiOU0/view?usp=sharing

       

      You will notice that I have other photos uploaded to the link; I have questions about those as well. But, I do not want to overwhelm you in one thread. Basically, the porcelain pieces look authentic, and what era do you believe the jewelry is from? I researched them all. The porcelain pieces I found information on, but I am not sure if they are real or fakes. The jewelry, being unsigned, I have no idea where to begin, so I am hoping  you can give me a starting point based on their design. 

      Thank you so much! I look forward to hearing from you! 

       

      Best, 

      Amanda
