Sotheby’s: Hair Comb from Scottish Jewelers A & J Smith

The Scottish penchant for austerity is present in both their silversmithing and jewelery making. Alex and John Smith worked in Aberdeen from 1880 to 1932. As Art Nouveau produced ever more nuanced and philosophical pieces in France, A&J Jewelers made and marked this comb: pronounced green-enamel shapes set in a simple wired gold frame with mother-of-pearl accents. The tiara is hinged to a tortoiseshell comb. Sotheby’s will start the bidding on December 14, 2011, at 3,000 GBP. We’ll take note of how much it fetches.

    I was just going through few sites and blogs yesterday and came across
    your site too. I really liked the way you
    have presented your site. I was reading some of your content and
    really found them interesting and informative. So I was just wondering
    if I can also do something for your site.

    Actually I am a freelance content writer and I love writing articles
    as a hobby on topics related to Scottish jewelry.

    What if I provide you with an unique article as a Guest Post. An
    article that will be informative for your readers. The article will be
    related to your website and will be appreciated by your readers.

    It would be great if you can add a small BIO of mine at the end of the
    article with my related site’s links. I guarantee you that the article
    will be 100% copy scape protected and will be of around 700 words.

    Please let me know if this sound good to you, so that we can start
    working on your article.
