Burglary of our Shop.

Posted by Susannah Everitt on

Last Monday night, our shop premises was broken into and jewellery, watches, some silver plate, and a clock were stolen.

Some of the items are very distinctive - I'll put a list here of the identifiable items, and if anyone offers you any of these PLEASE email us on or ring us on (09) 403 8000. 

Victorian late 1800s large china clock, Royal Bonn La Farge, movement by Ansonia.  Yellow, blues and aqua with water lilies.


Victorian pearl necklace - three strands of beautiful graduated pearls, with a clasp that would have been a Georgian mourning brooch - seed pearls surrounding a blank black panel. (Would have been a hair panel).

Five wrist watches by Ducado (German/Swiss make) - all are either manual wind or automatic wind. No quartz. Date panels are in German. Includes one ladies watch with a duck egg speckled blue face and a gold plate chain bracelet strap. Ducado is not sold anywhere else - probably in the world. All date 1970s.

Small gold Roman earring, dating from the 1st century AD. Has been suspended from a post fitting.

Pair of pearl & gilt collar studs in original box, circa 1910.

64 Halia charm beads, to be fitted onto a Halia bracelet (snake chain style or solid half-hoop silver). All in silver, some charms silver only, others in Venetian glass with silver caps. All are stamped "halia" and the copyright symbol ©. We are the only stockists of this jewellery in New Zealand. Bracelets were stolen as well as the charms.

Set of 6 boxed Danish silver plate teaspoons with colourful Guardsmen soldiers on the stems. Very distinctive. Circa 1950s.

Also stolen were around 75 new silver and silver/gemstone rings,  8 Victorian and early 20th century brooches, 15 new bracelets, silver with various gemstone, lots of new silver and gemstone earrings, several new silver necklaces, mostly stamped TZ. and a silver mark of 925.

If you get offered bulk silver jewellery, or any of the above items, PLEASE get in touch.

Thank you for reading this.
