For 40 years I was a German collector and wholesaler in the antiquejewelry business. My business is located in Pforzheim (Black Forest) which is the center of German goldsmith industries since the 18th century. I sell three different types of jewelry. What has a headline as' Antique' is older than 100 years and I bought these pieces mainly on auctions here in Germany. These pieces may show signs of wear.
What is called' Vintage' is between 20 and 60 years old (post WW2) and it is old unworn stock from former manufacturers and wholesalers who closed down in my hometown Pforzheim / Black Forest / Germany. The style is described as'Victorian style' or'Art-Deco style' but it is'Vintage' not'Antique. What is called' Bohemian' once was made in Bohemia and is about 2 to 20 years old. These Bohemian garnet pieces are in mint condition.You are looking for something special? If you are not content kindly contact me first - I allways found a way to satisfy my customers.
