This is most unusual - it's a large, celluloid hanging brooch - with girl's head (cameo style) surrounded by coloured flowers and hanging from a bar. It's in such good condition - even the fine chord. I have never seen one like it! Its £55 and the reference number is 396 A186/41.

It is hard to get nice, large hooped earrings - and these are big! They are marked "Burberry's" and the drop from top to bottom is approx. 7 cms. The hoops are patterned. I did have a great pair of Butler and Wilson ones but one of the earrings fell into the water on a photoshoot - and I have not been able to find any as nice. So was really pleased to get these!

This is something I would have liked to have kept. It is a German Art Deco paste bracelet, channel set, and marked DRGM. The paste is not all bright and shiny but the colour is even. It has small, black (?) galalith beads in between the paste rows. These are so Art Deco, and so smart! They are also very hard to find now and I was so pleased to find it! Worth getting up on a Sunday morning early for.

This is a Trifari gilt, faux pearl and white paste necklace. Good quality and condition. I used to be able to buy lots of this gilt Trifari but sadly now it is much more difficult to buy pieces in good condition. Very classic and smart!

Not a thing to buy in Cairo so it's back to London! I found these on my return and they are mad! A pair of Askew gilt metal, clip earrings. They each have a bird with faux pearls, and bee and a butterfly - with leaves. They have a faux pearl drop. I love Askew earrings - they are usually quite special! Just the thing to wear over Christmas!
