I had been collecting antique cast metal jewel boxes (caskets, trinket boxes) for more than 20 years. When I visited antique shops, dealers just didn't seem to know I had been collecting antique cast metal jewel boxes (caskets, trinket boxes) for more than 20 years. When I visited antique shops, dealers just didn't seem to know very much about them, and so began my quest for information. Learning that there was virtually nothing current written about these beautiful antiques, I began to research trade periodicals and catalogs of the early 1900's to learn about these fanciful boxes. Eventually, I had collected so much information, I decided it was time to “share,” and so I wrote and published: THE JEWEL BOX BOOK: The Definitive Guide to American Art Metal Jewelry Boxes 1900-1925. The book includes descriptions of typical styles (Nouveau, Victorian), floral motifs (and their meanings), metal composition, finishes, trademarks/patents/copyrights, old catalog pictures, manufacturers (like Jennings Bros, Weidlich Bros, Benedict, K&O, NB Rogers), 500 color photos of jewel boxes, a guide to dating jewel boxes, and a value guide. www.jewelboxbook.com (Read more)
