Chicago, Illinois


 


Established in 1855, this original E.V. Roddin catalogue from 1887-1889 includes, "Diamonds, Watches, Fine Jewelry & Silverware" as well as rolled gold and silver jewelry. This company both manufactured and sold goods as well as importing them. A note in the catalogue states, "The engravings in this Catalogue are correct and accurate illustrations of the goods... [and] having studied carefully to call everything by it's proper name and avoid all exaggerations, we can safely say that all articles in this book will look even better than the illustrations." These are excerpts from this wonderful 200 page catalogue.

Real pieces shown as examples for reference are close proximities to the items shown in the catalogue.

PLEASE NOTE: Regretfully, it is no longer possible to respond to individual questions regarding jewelry history, identification or value, or to offer written or verbal appraisals or opinions. The demand for this kind of information is absolutely too overwhelming for one dealer to fill. 
I love jewelry, but appraising and selling are two entirely different businesses, and I choose selling as my business.

Instead, articles are added on a regular basis to JEWEL CHAT on line Magazine, a wonderful reference for  information on many makers and styles of vintage jewelry.
