Ephemera

 

VICTORIAN deep red velvet album with embroidered pink floral bouquet front, colored floral design pages inside with photo ovals. It is 5" by 6" by 2" and would hold 36 photographs, half of which are wonderfully illustrated with colorful florals. Inside this album came a small letter dated Sept. 14 /66 and speaking of traveling to English cities and signed by Jenny Cookson. This is in excellent condition with slight coloring on the pages from age, but the paper inside is brittle and I think inserting photographs might damage them.   View   View   View   View   #V32230

LINKS-Jewelry

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 and research 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.
