A COLLECTOR’S GUIDE TO COSTUME JEWELRY: KEY STYLES AND HOW TO RECOGNIZE THEM. TOKIEN & WILKINSON
This lovely book will help you enhance your knowledge and appreciation of classic costume jewellery and fakes. From aristocratic 18th-century paste, to Art Deco, and the collectibles of tomorrow. It traces the inspirations and trends, new techniques and materials, to help you collect with confidence.
There are designer profiles of the leading trend-setters including Chanel, Schiaparelli, Tiffany, and Butler and Wilson. Identification tips help you recognize 18th-century Strass-style earrings — genuine jet mourning jewelry — or a glittering Trifari necklace of the Cocktail Age.
The book includes more than 200 stunning photographs, many specially commissioned.
