Happy Friday, my dears!
I was doing some Etsy browsing the other day (as one does) and I found a bumper crop of really lovely camphor glass pieces. You know how much I love camphor glass.
These beauties range in price up above $1,300, but quite a few of them are below $200: so don’t be afraid to click through if you see something you love.
This piece with the colorful bird is one of the most beautiful camphor glass pieces I’ve ever seen – I’ve never seen anything like it anywhere else. The tiny, significant addition of the colorful bird brings the whispering elegance of the camphor glass and filigree to a whole new level. This piece, I’m sad to say, is what sets the top end of the price range.
I love the tiny filigree details on this camphor glass necklace: all those narrow, rectangular elements are so compelling, and the piece as a whole is such a lovely long shape.
Gold filigree! My personal camphor glass collection is entirely lacking in gold filigree – it’s more unusual than the white. I think this piece is beautiful.
Speaking of camphor glass with a twist: how great is the onyx detail on this pendant? I love that chain, too, with the filigree links and pearls. Find it here.
A pretty camphor glass ring, or THE PRETTIEST camphor glass ring? With that lovely filigree and tri-color yellow/rose gold floral details, I think it’s making a strong case for the latter.
This unusual beauty is by the notable Ostby Barton. I didn’t realize camphor glass could be black, but that’s what the listing says this is and from the detail photos, I’m inclined to believe it. It’s such a striking juxtaposition of colors, with the light tendrils of filigree snaking across the glossy dark surface. I also adore the baguette shaped rhinestone detail above the pendant bail – deliciously geometric is that Art Deco way I love so much.
This brooch is like a lesson in the Art Deco aesthetic, with its close, precise lines of the filigree stripes juxtaposed with the delicate floral elements and the wide, clean expanse of the camphor glass punctuated by the hexagonally-set diamond with its flanked sapphires. Delectable.
This necklace is actually rock crystal: the more expensive material that camphor glass was intended to mimic. I think it’s exquisite; uncomplicated and delicate, with whispers of filigree.
What do you think of the selection, my dears? Will any of you be adding a camphor glass piece to your collection after perusing this tempting buffet?
If that’s not enough, here are some more (all under $200): pretty with flowers, small and rectangular, small with a star, oval with filigree on chain, larger oval with filigree, very cool with silhouette, simple oval, cute chunky rectangle, pointy ends, and oval with chrysoprase. These get a list because their photos aren’t blogworthy, but they still look like good options.
