Fine. 4to-over 9¾"-12" tall. "The articles of costume jewelry presented in this book are generally a part of the jewelry styles derived from the European traditions of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. While the term costume used in this context can refer specifically to inexpensive, mass produced imitations of fine jewelry and gems, this group goes well beyond mere imitations. The materials used initially to imitate were themselves explored and found able to produce effects quite different than any known styles. The early glass imitation gems were lighter weight than the gemstones they were designed to replicate." This book has 163 pages and is profusely illustrated.
