Costume Jewelry Collectors Presents an original publication by RCJ and Dorothea Stringfield
The Albert Walker Company Catalog of Jewelry and Watches
Nona Grampp, of “Nona’s of Alexandria @ RubyLane”, has kindly allowed me to feature her photos of this Albert Walker Jewelry catalog from the year 1915 on RCJ. The Albert Walker Company was located in the heart of the jewelry industry of Providence, RI, and sold exclusively to retail jewelers and watchmakers.
Although the catalog is for fine jewelry, it helps us date costume jewelry from the same time period. Costume jewelry designers often took inspiration from fine jewelry styles and materials.
