I have costume Jewellery with trademark Austria on the back.

Customer Question

I have costume Jewellery with trademark Austria on the back. Is it worth selling or just taking to the second hand shop?
JA: The Antiques Appraiser can help. You can also send photos once I've connected you. Do you know how old the jewelry is?
Customer: it might be from the 50’s or 60’s … yes I can send photos
JA: What condition is the jewelry in?
Customer: Very good … it looks like blue glass stones … it is a brooch and earrings
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?
Customer: no - if I could send a photo to help?

Hello,

My name is ***** ***** I’d love to help you with your question!
However, I will need to see pictures of your items before I can offer information or a valuation. Please attach pictures using the information given here:

https://www.justanswer.co.uk/help/how-do-i-send-photo-or-file-expert

If you have several items then start a new thread/request per item. If you write

'FOR ANNA' in headline the question comes to me.

(The system may ask you for a call, you can choose to have the call, but if you are not interested, you can just ignore it)

I might not be online when you have uploaded your photos, but I will get back to you as soon as I have a valuation or other questions for you.

Thank you in advance,

Anna

Have a look here https://www.collectorsweekly.com/costume-jewelry/austrian

Also here for similar items. A market valuation for the set is approx. $70.

I hope this information was helpful!

I am happy to answer follow-up questions.

If you want to sell your item then here are a few suggestions:

Facebook Marketplace, NextDoor.com, Webstore.com, Varagesale.com

GoAntiques.com, Truegether.com, Mercari.com, Wanelo.com, Poshmark.com, Bonanza.com, Etsy.com, eBay, Pamono.com, and Chairish.com.

If you have several jewelry items then start a new thread/request per item. If you write

'FOR ANNA' in headline the question comes to me.

I strive to always provide five-star service, please let me know if you like more information about your item. As the assessment is made online and with the reservations and uncertainty it provides, I would recommend a physical assessment before a possible sale.

Sincerely

Anna
