This vintage book is a detailed guide antique jewellery and trinkets. Originally intended for the use of minor collectors of jewellery, it gives instructions for identification, tips on collecting, historical information, and much more. This volume is highly recommended for those with an interest in vintage jewellery and would make for a worthy addition to collections of related literature. Contents include: "Ancient Jewellery", "The Middle Ages", "From the Beginning of the Renaissance to the End of the Seventeenth Century", "The Eighteenth and Nineteenth Centuries", "Provincial Jewellery", "Oriental Jewellery: Indian, Chinese, Japanese", "Broaches", "Rings", "Shoe Buckles", etc. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on the history of jewellery and jewellery making.
