Emmons & Sarah Coventry Jewelry fashion Show by Deborah A Robinson

This is another book review on the subject of vintage jewellery

This week I have decided to look at the book on Emmons and Sarah Coventry jewellery by Deborah A Robinson, because in the UK the vintage jewellery is not rare and you will often find brooches, necklaces, bracelets or earrings. They also did a range of men's and children's jewellery. Less found in the UK are the scarves and accessories.

On a previous blog I have written about the history of the company and so will not look at that here.

This book is one of several that can be bought. All the authors are collectors and enthusiasts in the US, so although the jewellery is in most the same, you do come across pieces that are marked UK that may not be in the books.

For me this is one of my most used books. It has helped to find the names of jewellery that I find, age and also what is available in that set.
It is written in an easy to read format with hundreds of coloured photographs for reference.It has a section in the back on International jewellery produced by the company from 1960 to 1980.

Green cufflinks and tie pin boxed from sarah Coventry.

Price guides do fluctuate and although the prices are displayed in dollars, this book was written in 2006 and the prices for Sarah Coventry jewellery have risen.
