I had toyed with putting some jewelry on one of the Malamutes for #jeweladvent18creaturecomforts today, but my husband gave me the, "Are you insane!?" look. Sadly, they aren't as well behaved as Edie and Elvis. They would have run off with everything and claimed it as their own, so I had to listen to my husband's voice of reason and pass on doing an actual jewelry / animal photo, but swipe to see all the babies that I can't get enough of and how much we like holding paws! So ... here is all my fantastical creature related jewelry - Assyrian revival lumasi, a coiled snake, and my owl ring, whose namesake is taken after Jareth, the goblin king, himself! All this, paired with the marvelous creatures of Labyrinth. Ludo says, "Jewelry friend!" @antiqueanimaljewelry  #jeweladvent

Most of the time, when I want to get dolled up, I go glitzy and glamorous, but sometimes you need a fierce, powerful statement piece made up of an Assyrian revival female winged genie and a collar of conical spikes. This is my choice for today's #jeweladvent theme of Little Black Dress Accessories, hosted by @plazajewellery . #jeweladvent18lbdaccessories .

What is your candy of choice on Halloween? One of my favorite Halloween experiences was probably the last time I went trick or treating. I must have been about 12 and I was going around the neighborhood with my friend. When we got to a chateau inspired house, we rang the doorbell, and chimed, "Trick or treat!" A man opened the door, put the candy bowl down, and proclaimed, "You get to choose from the big girl tray." He then whirled around with a serving dish full of vintage costume jewelry. It was fabulous and has stuck with me till this day. Can you imagine if he had been passing out antique jewelry! 😱 I hope to continue his tradition some day and present the older girls with a bit of sparkle. ✨ Until then, this is my Halloween candy dish inspiration, full of antique jewels.

My non-jewelry posts never do too well, but I really wanted to share this piece. (Please excuse the poor quality photos. It's so reflective, it was hard to capture!) It is a Henry Wilkinson & Co. Victorian Assyrian revival meat cover, circa 1860. I've only ever seen a stoneware jug with an Assyrian revival scene on it. In my wildest fantasies, I dreamed that there would be serving pieces out in the world with an Assyrian revival motif on them - like serving platters or even better, a teapot! In the back of my mind, I felt perhaps there was something out there in that vein, but one never really knows. Assyrian revival is such a rare style anyway, maybe it just wasn't popular enough to make wares out of. Then this magnificent piece turned up and all my dreams came true! It is etched with the surname Frazer, the original owners of the piece. This meat cover was deaccessioned from the Tudor Place Foundation in order to benefit their conservation funds. My parents bought this meat dome as a wedding gift for me and my husband, a year late, but they wanted to wait to find something truly special ... and spectacular! (Which they absolutely knocked it out of the park!) Not only is this a truly remarkable piece, I'm so glad the money spent to purchase it went to help conserve other items of the past. This piece means so much to me, as an Assyriologist, but represents my brother so well too, who is an art conservator, so it was truly all encompassing and a beautiful representation of all that is wonderful. It is now my life's mission to find other pieces to go with this. I did come across an Assyrian revival serving platter and cover from the same company, sold many moons ago at auction, but other than these two pieces, there isn't anything else out there on the internet. Surely there are other things, hidden, waiting to be discovered and enjoyed. If anyone finds anything Assyrian revival related, not just serving ware, hit me up! I want it all! .

When I began this IG journey, I had no idea what to expect. I was unsure if it was to be a solitary path or one in which friends are made along the way. It's truly a wonder that it has been the latter. Forging friendships, I could never have imagined meeting someone as fiercely passionate and dedicated as @diamondantiquary . At the musing of how amazing an enamel lamassu would be, without a second thought, she proclaimed "Okay!" and set out to make me a pendant with her immense talent. I could never recount all the ways in which this piece is so very special to me. It was thought up and created for me and only for me in mind. She even went one step further and personalized the back with my initials because we share the same sentimental nature, in that real custom made pieces are seldom seen today and she wished so much so for this to be in that vein. He is a genuine wonder. Thank you for this treasure, dear friend, and thank you for your friendship.

I saw the most wonderful exhibit with my mom at the Legion of Honor today. Check out my stories for some of the Pre-Raphaelite beauties we got to behold. These were the jewels I wore and an unexpected #lamassu pin my mom got me from the museum store. Does anyone else get all dolled up when going to museums?

My very dear friend, @diaryofdiamonds , made this incredible enamel #lamassu brooch for me. Not only is she wonderfully smart and cultured - getting her PhD in musicology - she is an insanely talented artist! The lamassu is beyond amazing; I am so blown away. I look forward to treasuring him my whole life long. #antiquejewelry people, follow this lovely person! She is the nicest and really steps up #jewelryfriendsarethebestfriends .

ASSYRIAN BLUE MONDAY PART II. When I moved to The Hague a couple of years ago there was a still functioning barbershop (G. Blonk at the Thomsonlaan), built #around1900 in #assyrian style of which I always thought that it would be cool to visit. But before I could execute my idea, it was closed down. Moral of this story: when you can get your beard done in Neo #assyrian #style or #art then do it people! I really regret I waited too long, do not become like Robotopp who has to suffer from a bad conscience till eternity. The kind current owner let me in, so I had at least an opportunity to show you what I missed out on. This place is actually not far from that #assyrianrevival door at the Laan van Meerdervoort in The Hague, which I posted earlier. Just swipe to see a second shot, could not decide which one is better. #iphone #nofilter #neostyle #instanetherlands #igholland #igersdenhaag #chasing_facades #thisisthehague #theprettycities #thomsonlaan #architecturephotography #g.blonk #beautyisinthedetails #thehague_070 #catch_holland #dutch_connextion #prettyholland #super_holland #thehaguedaily #bluemonday #tiles #ceramics #tegels #keramiek #barbershop

My darling Assyrian revival earrings from @nalfies have just arrived! What I love so much about the Assyrian revival items is that you can get a glimpse of the jewelers, who made the pieces. Here, for example, I believe two different jewelers created the lumasi because they are stylistically very different, with the one on the right being inferior to the lamassu on the left. Maybe a teacher and apprentice piece? I'm also fascinated with these pieces in particular because the jewelers had to have gone to the British Museum to study their subjects and make detailed sketches while there, in order to reproduce them in their studios. Additionally, whoever bought such pieces must have been fascinated by history and the current finds coming out of Mesopotamia. I love the idea of wearing something that was once owned by someone, who adored history and the rediscovery of lost civilizations.

Oh lovelies of IG, remember several posts back when I was distraught over missing out on that most magnificent Victorian Assyrian revival necklace? Well, the truly wonderful happened and Pat from @lowther_antiques passed it along to be in my care. A million times thank you, Pat!!! I received it this morning as a birthday gift from my husband. (He's the best!) Words can't even describe how beautiful and detailed this necklace is. It is a masterpiece. I am over the moon about it! 😍💞 The gutta percha Victorian Assyrian revival lamassu hand mirror and wildly cool Victorian teapot with lions and claws are gifts from my parents. This is just a preview, you can be sure I'll post much more about this piece. For now, I'm off to eat cake! 🎂🎉🎊 #antiquejewelry #antiquenecklace #victorianjewelry #victoriannecklace #silverlocket #lamassu #assyrianrevival #victorianassyrianrevival #guttapercha #victorianaccessories #antiquehandmirror #antiqueteapot #silverteapot #victoriansilver #victorianlocket #cuneiform #mesopotamia

Okay, I missed out on this most magnificent Victorian Assyrian revival necklace from @douce.d . My heart breaks like the Lamentation of the Destruction of Ur. 💔 This is such a spectacular piece and the Assyrian revival items are so difficult to come by, plus, the fact that this one is so amazing is not helping my woes. I had toyed with the idea of putting an Akkadian curse on the necklace and seeing how proficient the new owner is at anti-witchcraft rituals. 🤔 We'll see. I'm still considering it. 😏 Fun fact, my master's degree was in witchcraft and ancient black magic, so I know what I'm doing. 😉 For now, I sob and mourn for this marvel. 😭😭😭 #assyrianrevival #victorianassyrianrevival #theonethatgotaway #sobstory #mesopotamia #lamassu

The most extraordinary thing happened yesterday evening. While taking a break from researching, I went on IG and the first thing that popped up was a magnificent Victorian Assyrian Revival bangle from @risingfawnjewelry . I originally saw it for sale months ago, but was unable to purchase it and then I thought it had sold. The Assyrian Revival pieces mean so much to me because I have my BA, MA, and soon PhD in Assyriology. I studied in London and went to the British Museum every week to look at these wall reliefs, lumasi, and to read cuneiform. One of these bangles is a dream piece for me and I never thought I'd be able to own one and then, as if by magic, my favorite example of these pieces, became available! My parents have purchased it and will secret it away until after my defense, as a graduation gift. I can't think of a better present to complete my studies. Until then, I am basking in the glory of my other lumasi and Mesopotamian influenced items. #antiquejewelry #victorianjewelry #victoriansilver #brooch #locket #assyrianrevival #victorianassyrianrevival #vintagejewelry #lamassu #cuneiform #leather #leatherbag #burntleather #bookends

The most extraordinary thing happened yesterday evening. While taking a break from researching, I went on IG and the first thing that popped up was a magnificent Victorian Assyrian Revival bangle from @risingfawnjewelry . I originally saw it for sale months ago, but was unable to purchase it and then I thought it had sold. The Assyrian Revival pieces mean so much to me because I have my BA, MA, and soon PhD in Assyriology. I studied in London and went to the British Museum every week to look at these wall reliefs, lumasi, and to read cuneiform. One of these bangles is a dream piece for me and I never thought I'd be able to own one and then, as if by magic, my favorite example of these pieces, became available!

Queen V did love her sweets! Today's #jeweladvent is #jeweladventcandycane , hosted by @fidrajewellers . Okay, let me start by saying I have the best parents! I had seen these two sterling Victorian Assyrian pieces online, but just before buying each, they were sold! Back story, all of my education is in the ancient Near East and I'm finishing up my PhD in the subject. The Victorian Assyrian revival jewelry doesn't come up that often, so I was incredibly bummed when these fell through and I even lamented to my mom that I would never be able to get a piece or start my own collection. I haven't celebrated Chanukah yet with my parents this year, until tonight. Much to my shrieking delight, they bought both pieces, a female winged genie locket, fashioned after the Neo-Assyrian wall reliefs from Nimrud in the British Museum, and a lamassu brooch. They took it one step further by gifting me this antique print of Queen Victoria, herself ... you know, for some serious jewelry inspiration. No matter what, win, lose, or draw, I'm a winner tonight. Ahhhh!!!!! 😀

An #artdeco #bronze #plaque in The Hague inside the Bijenkorf departmentstore. It was given as a present to the directors Isaac, Meyer and Goudsmit in March 1926 by the staff  of the location in Amsterdam. Why is it now in The Hague then? Questions, questions, but I love this #interwar #metalwork especially the near eastern 'en profile' depiction of the people and the #calligraphy of course. If you tell me it is #assyrianrevival I would believe you straight away. #instanetherlands #igholland #igersdenhaag #1920s #architecture #architecturephotography #archidaily #archilovers #facades #chasing_facades #geveltoerist #gevels #iphone #nofilter #interwarmodernism #addicted_to_facades #bijenkorfdenhaag #departmentstore #warenhuis #kalligrafie #bijenkorf #thisisthehague

I keep thinking about this stunning bangle. Just find it so heart breaking that the treasures which inspired this piece have been destroyed by inhuman acts of terrorism to both the people and history of Syria. #Repost @eriebasin with @repostapp.

Everyone knows Egyptian-revival jewelry, but what about Assyrian-revival? This c1870 gold bracelet reproduced imagery found at the ancient Assyrian city of Nimrud, which was excavated in the mid 19th century. ISIS destroyed Nimrud with bulldozers and explosives earlier this year. #nimrud #assyrianrevival #victorianjewelry
