Costume Jewelry Collectors Presents an original publication by RCJ and Dorothea Stringfield
The Albert Walker Company Catalog: Jewelry and Watches
Nona Grampp, of “Nona’s of Alexandria @ RubyLane”, has kindly shared her photos of this Albert Walker Jewelry catalog from the year 1915 with Researching Costume Jewelry. 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 and fashion jewelry designers often took inspiration from fine jewelry styles and materials.
