ERIE BASIN ANTIQUES
Two cases at the shop this afternoon.
Such great design in early 20th century poster art for magicians. There’s an auction house in Chicago that specializes in magic memorabilia, and I always enjoy looking through their catalogs. If I were a vintage poster dealer, I’d bid on this.
1920s Art Deco 0.96ct Old European Cut Diamond (G-H VS2) Engagement Ring, Single Cut Diamonds, Platinum, $8750
1920s Art Deco 0.67ct Transitional Cut Diamond Ring (in the online shop)
I’m back. Regular hours resume on Wednesday.
I have new stuff.
Erie Basin is closed now for summer vacation.
I’ll be back the week of the 18th and normal hours will resume on Wednesday August 20th.
1900-10s French Emerald and Pearl Curb Link Chain Bracelet, 18K Yellow Gold (in the online shop)
1920s Art Deco Gillot & Co. 2.15ct Diamond Engagement Ring, Platinum
(in the online shop)
I was pleased to find this. It’s gotten so hard to find old diamond rings of decent quality over 2 carats. This diamond’s a beauty. And as an added bonus, it’s signed Gillot & Co. Paul Gillot was a French jeweler who immigrated to New York to work for Marcus & Co in 1901. He opened his own shop on Fifth Avenue in 1916. This ring undoubtedly came out of that shop.
