An unusual example of vintage German jewelry, this silver link Machine Age bracelet was made by Württembergische Metallwarenfabrik (WMF). This German company is best known for its Art Nouveau and Art Deco silver-plated tableware. This silver-plated link bracelet from the Ikora line closes with a hidden, tongue-in-groove clasp. The warm patina can be polished away, if you choose. This wonderful bracelet is attractive, yet neutral enough to be worn with a variety of attire for a range of day and evening activities.

Five polished chrysoprase-glass stones are separated by geometric chrome spacers that give this 1930s Art Deco necklace a real Machine Age look. The silver-tone paper-clip chain closes with a screw-in clasp. You can wear this necklace with my chrysoprase Art Deco earrings and my Machine Age bracelets -- scroll down to see them.
Lapis glass beads alternate with decorative chrome elements and lapis plastic(?) rings to form this attractive and versatile 1930s Art Deco necklace with a screw-barrel clasp. This piece is probably European in origin. It looks lovely with my lapis and chrome Art Deco earrings and bracelets – scroll down to see a selection.
Lapis glass beads separated by decorative chrome links and a center Galalith(?) bead with chrome end caps form this German Machine Age necklace. The same piece in other colors has been attributed to Bengel by a British expert. This necklace closes with a spring-ring clasp, which may be a replacement (it is brass in color). The center bead has a minor flaw that probably occurred during manufacture. This small imperfection does not detract from the beauty or wearability of this necklace.
