This comes from an estate in the Hamptons spanning many years. She had several pieces from designers such as Ciner, Coro, Danecraft, Eisenberg, Givenchy, Hattie Carnegie, Judy Lee, Juliana (DeLizza and Elster), Hattie Carnegie, Kramer, Krementz, Miriam Haskell, Sarah Coventry, Schreiner, Tiffany and Company, and Trifari along with many other pieces by Monet, Napier, and many others.
I have acquired various collections which have included some of the most desirable designers; Boucher, Carnegie, Ciner, DeLizza and Elster (aka Juliana), Eisenberg, Haskell, Hobe, Lane, Philippe for Trifari, Schreiner, Schiaparelli, Vendome, and Weiss as well as Coro, Coventry, Kramer, Krementz, Lisner, and Trifari.
Numerous pieces are book pieces and many had matching pieces so many demi-parures are available. I acquired so much of this jewelry that I will be working on offering it in the store for years to come.
There are additional antique and vintage necklaces, brooches, and earrings in the Designer, Necklaces, Pendant, Earrings, as well as the Bakelite, Lucite, and Other Plastics Studio Categories.
There are also other antique and vintage costume and plastic jewelry (bakelite, lucite, celluloid, and figurals), collectibles, books, art, glass, china, kitchen, home decor, and retro pieces in the store.
