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.

are found in Pegu, in Asia, Brazil and Ceylon. The Bohemian Garnet is
composed of a double silicate of Alumina and Iron, and are found in great
abundance in Bohemia, Saxony and other parts of Germany."
