202 basics collecting costume dating jewelry jewelry
This gigantic book is filled with photos, patent numbers, vintage ads and dating methods making it very impressive at first thumb-though.
My approach to collecting costume jewelry has been influenced by long established conventions in coin and stamp collecting.The much anticipated sequel to Collecting Costume Jewelry 101 is finally here!Collecting Costume Jewelry 202 will take students through another phase of jewelry collecting - the basics of dating jewelry, 1935 - 1980.There just needs to be more information on more companies rather than only a few. This has a lot of patent numbers in it , and what designers go with it.
My problem with these books is everything all the items are all high priced, which doesn't help the newby much. I am an experienced collector and this book is full of information on learning how to date vintage costume jewelry.
I have already purchased many copies as Christmas gifts and hope she will continue to share her wealth of knowledge with us on this subject.
