New in New jacket. Book **NEW** Jewelry manufacture had its American beginnings in the late 18th century and grew, over the course of the next 200 years, to be a dominant force in the world market. Being of the highest quality, this jewelry and related accessories made their way around the world and now are found in collections everywhere. This new book explores a vast variety of buttons, jewelry, match safes, cufflinks, mesh purses, compacts, and more, from Victorian period through the Art Nouveau and Art Deco eras, and on to the 1960s. Over 300 color photographs illustrate the beauty and the quality of the jeweller's art. In addition the book offers insight into the companies and people who made up the jewelry industry. During much of this period, Attleboro, Massachusetts was the hub of American jewelry manufacture. The trademarks and product information includes over 200 manufacturers located there. Because their products are becoming a strong collecting subcategory today, this book will be of great assistance to collectors. Lovers of fine jewelry and the historians of design will find this a welcome addition to their library and a thorough resource for their collecting interests.
