Nielloware jewelery and related items from Siam (Thailand) were popular gifts from american soldiers who were taking R and R, to their wives or girlfriends back home from the 1930's - 1970's and tourists bring home souvenirs and gifts from extended vacations and trips abroad during this period. Siam jewelery is very collectable because of the wide variety of items, variety of subjects, and the mystic of the country. Please email me with any questions.
