Older catalogues shed light on
the jewelry and accessories of times past. Illustrations date the items we
collect and enjoy today, and help us understand how these lovely things were
worn and used.
It is also interesting to see how these accessories were priced over 100
years ago. Where possible, we have added pictures of the items
illustrated in the catalogue.
