Sterling Vintage Lot Jewelry,salt & Pepper,slave Bracelet,1880 Silver Dollar :
This sale is for a largelot of sterling silver items from a San Francisco estate. All jewelryexcept a small group of scrapin the topright corneris in good wearable condition, andsome of it could definitely use a good cleaning if you like your sterling to shine.In addition to the individual jewelry,thereis a very pretty salt and pepper set, a three piece slave bracelet with turquoise,two spoons, and an 1880 silver dollar. Most pieces are marked so I'll briefly describe and tell you what I can see;unmarked pieceswere labeled at the estate and purchased as sterling.The group weighs405 grams or14.2 ounces without including thebonus group which is single earrings, rings,an old id bracelet, and a shiny silver charm bracelet (with those pieces included, the weight is 455 grams or a bit over 1 pound). Please note that the silver dollar is inone of the white cardboard square holders that I didn't remove it from for weighing, and that the salt and pepper shakers are weighted.I'll give you individual weights for the larger pieces and if you want additional information about smaller items, please ask. **The salt and pepper shakers are 4 1/2" tall and in very nice, useable condition other than needing to be shined. The bottoms are marked Empire Sterling Weighted 232. They weigh 9.6 ounces. **The slave bracelet is three pieces connected together, each with a piece of turquoise. These are unmarked and I wanted to be sure of them so I took them over to the jeweler for verification. He said that they're very well made and definitely sterling. The cuff bracelet is 2 1/4" across the inside and the ring is a size 6. The chain and jewelry measurement from the top of the bracelet to the bottom of the ring is 5 1/2" long. This is a beautifully designed set and looks wonderful on your wrist and hand. The weight is 20 grams. **The silver dollar is dated 1880 and came in this holder with no writing on it from the estate sale. I know very little about coins so if you have a question about it, please be as specific as you can so I'll know what to look for. **There are two little spoons. One is a salt spoon that measures 2 1/4"long and is marked Elmcroft Handmade Sterling. The other is a little bitlonger, a little bit over 3" and has numerous markings and etchings in the bowl. The marking underneath is Copywrited Sterling with three little symbols, the lion, the anchor, and another I'm not sure of. They weigh 10 grams. **There are two sailboat pieces of jewelry. The brooch is 1 1/2" across and is from Mexico with markings that are difficult to read. The back says Mex 925 and I think TA-14, possibly other numbers that are under the pin. The back pin is strong and works well, and there is also a loop in back so that it could be worn as a pendant. The second piece of sailboat jewelry is a pendant or charm marked 925 on a 19" chain marked sterling on the clasp. They weigh 15 grams. **There is a large brooch that's a bunch of grapes, measures 2" tall and just about 2" across. It's old and has worn markings; I can see most of the word Mexico. It's wearable and very pretty but not my favorite type of back pin because it's the kind that doesn't lock the pin in. It weighs 10 grams. **The sterling necklace chain is 3mm wide and 16" long. There are eight sterling pendants or charms that aren't on chains; one is the Gabriel Monday coin pendant. The chain link bracelet that you can put charms on is just under 8" long. There is arhinestone heart on a 15 1/2" sterling chain. There is also a rhinestone clasp marked Sterling. **There are four rings, two of them have abalone shell fronts; one is marked Sterling Mexico and the other says Taxco and has other markings that are difficult to read. They are size 7 and 5. The other two rings are marked 925, one size 6 and onejust under a size 4. **There are three pairs of sterling earrings, two for pierced ears and one vintage screw backs with red stones. **The bonus group not included in the weightincludes a silverware ring, three single earrings, an old id bracelet,belly button jewelry, and one of the bright, shiny charm bracelets from China. **The silverware ring has an S marking inside so it might be sterling but not all of the silverware rings are sterling so I'm not sure. There are three single earrings and something else thatI think isfor a belly button. There is a very old id bracelet that is marked both 1/20 12k GF and sterling base. It has a hallmark that's a triangle with a joined JB inside and Pat. 2.097.055.U.S.A. It has abroken clasp and I'm not sure if it can be fixed up and used or is just scrap.It's just so old and looks like it was pretty at one time so I didn't want to throw it away. **The last jewelry in the bonus groupis one of the bright silver charm bracelets that I think people purchase from China. It has a 925 tag and might be sterling butI put it in the bonus group and not in the main weight because I'm never sure of these shiny pieces from China. It's 7 1/2" long and has a tag that says 925. It has pretty sparkly charms and would be fun to wear but this isn't my kind of sterling. I like old sterling that is aged and dark and these pieces from China just don't look right to me. Since it came with the group I'll include itand hopefully it'll find a good home where someone will enjoy it. **I tried to take enough pictures so you can see everything but if you have questions or can't seesomething clearly pleasewrite.

Items in my sales are almost all from estates; I describe as best I can, but I'm not an expert. Most of my information comes from estate executors and/or family members. I don't attempt to clean older items, would rather leave that to the new owner.
