News-Antique.com - Nov 30,-0001 - Recently "Ice Originals II" had the pleasure of acquiring a portion of a large New York Estate that includes fine and costume jewelry items from the 1800's through the mid 1900's. Quite a few of the earlier pieces are of definite European manufacture, as they feature the European style clasps and hinges. There are some phenomenal pieces, that appear as though they could have historic value, as well as the normal interest for collectors.
Several of the pieces feature hand chasing and enamel, inlaid into the gold. Several gorgeous, carved shell and hard stone cameos are included, even one encased in 14kt. white gold. There is a lovely hard stone cameo ring included as well, and all are reasonably priced, with an option for "making an offer". There are watch pins, as well as sash pins, brooches, and some very nice cut steel and gold earrings, with the collection as a whole showing a nice array of items from several jewelry eras. There are also fabulous pieces of "Dodds" and "Miriam Haskell", along with unsigned early "Coro" pieces in fabulous condition and reasonably priced. The art deco and art nouveau movements are clearly represented as well as some transistion pieces. These jewelry items, each very well designed and crafted, are true representations of the jewelry of the era. They can be viewed for purchase consideration at "Ice Originals II" which is located at:
