    Default Need help/advice please

    I was hired to empty the house of a horder and told I could keep, donate, toss whatever as long as I emptied the place. I found these pearls that passed the tooth test. The woman was a stewardess that flew with TWA from the early 50's. She lived in Saudi, china and ethiopia as well as the states. (she really seemed neat to me). I did see some yellowed and old paper talking about antique pears from china but tossed it as i was getting pretty tired and hadn't seen any jewelry at the time. Anyway, would anybody know anything by looking at picturesName:  0817142153[1].jpg

    No idea what that stamp on that catch is, but if you open it and roll them along the table it will help ascertain how round they are and if you hold them up to the light you can check if they are implanted. The look like FWPs from here but the pictures aren't the best.

    The ringed potato shaped ones will be FWPs with what look to be base metal fittings.

    I won't even pretend to know what is going on in that first one, but it looks interesting. Some nice baroques in there. You'll no doubt get some good info here but I'd pop into a jewellers and get someone to look that over first hand too. Shouldn't cost anything for them to have a quick nose over it.
