About Us
My name is Joel Gilgoff and I live in beautiful Sedona, Arizona. It has taken me over 40 years to amass a collection of art nouveau. My wife and I have traveled the world and stopped at antique dealers, flea markets and private homes buying original art nouveau.

About 90% of my collection has already been sold. I've kept some of the best pieces for last. I'll be adding more items each week until everything is sold.

The items consist mainly of art nouveau: jewelry (silver, gold filled and carat gold), match safes, pocket watches, pitchers, clocks, boutique items and lots more.

We have purchased items from Les Puces de Saint-Ouen in Paris, Brussels flea market, the Vienna antique market and all of the worlds other great marketplaces.

Items are priced close to my cost of many years ago, but feel free to make reasonable offers.

If there are specific items of art nouveau that you may be interested in please let me know and I will attempt to put them in my shop for you.

It is now time to dispose of my collection so I'm offering new items each week to my shop.

Got this piece today in the mail. It is gorgeous!! Can't wait to
wear it! Thanks you sooooo much!

Kim (12-11)

Thank you! It is prettier than I imagined.

Rhonda 12-11

I can't thank you enough for having the perfect silver pillbox
pendant! Not an easy thing to find, and your asking price was
quite reasonable (which I know, because I shopped for this item
in quite a few places). And I especially appreciate buying an
antique, not so much because it's old and has a history-features
that are nice, but not that big of a deal to me-as the fact that
antiques are recycled items and thus better for the environment.


Julie (10-11)

Dear Joel,

I received the watch today! Thanks so much for your prompt delivery and great packaging!!! The watch is beautiful, and my husband loves it!

Thanks Again!!

Jan (09-11)

Thanks again,
Jane (09-11)

Just wanted to say the watch is amazing & my husband loves it! Thanks again, you rock!

Stephanie (09-11)

Love the brooch and all the extra goodies!

Robin :) (9/2011)

The Unger Brothers Art Nouveau Buckle just arrived. What a major
BEAUTY! I will treasure it and love showing it off. Thanks!
And thanks, too, for the speedy delivery.

Lahna (8-2011)

Just a quick email to let you know the items arrived safely some days ago and are lovely.

Thank you for the great care in packing and the additional diary!
Art Nouveau is quite popular here, but incredibly difficult to source on the mainland. Australia can be wonderful but is so sodding isolated!

Anyway, Alison and I shall keep an eye on your shop, it has been a pleasure trading.

Craig (7-2011)

Dear Joel,

The pin is gorgeous!!! Thank you for it and for your lovely gift
of the datebook! You are a wonderful seller, and I hope that we
can do business again! Have a terrific week!!
Best Wishes,

Lisa (7-2011)

I got the pocket watch today, and it looks even better than the
pictures. Thank you again for all your help and I'm sure this
will make one breath-taking anniversary gift. Your service and
timing was excellent. Thank you and your jewelry is amazing!

Sophia P. (6/2011)

Hi Joel, just letting you know I received the lovely necklace today. It's so lifelike . I almost feel that it should fly away while I'm holding it .The colors are so vibrant. It's been a true pleasure doing business with you. I visit your shop often since you have one of the best art nouveau jewelry on Ruby Lane. I almost bought buttons once but hesitated and it sold right away. I'm glad I didn't hesitate on this one. Have a good rest of the week. Warm regards,

Cynthia (5/2011)

My best online buying experience! The variety of items I purchased all
show great design & taste, were accurately described & priced very
fairly. The turnaround was immediate and the communications terrific.
Quality, value and trust says it all. I'll be back.

Dennis (5/2011)

I just love it (the locket) so much, it's so beautiful! Wow more than 100!? That is so great!!! Do you list them everyday? I'll have to keep a watch on your shop each day!! I love collecting lockets - then when I want another one I sell one that I don't wear as much!

Anne B. (3/2011)

Just got the mail a few minutes ago and the watch is really just the bees knees : )! Thank you again for listing it at such an affordable price. I will likely get a Satin cord and some vintage oriental beads (just a few for accents and preferable ones that are either Deco or Nouveau and Oriental) and make a longer necklace using the pocket watch as the focal point. Thank you again for mailing it so quickly. Getting something so neat in the mail was certainly a bright spot in my day. Thank you.

Jessica L. (3/2011)

You sure are a super fast shipper...I love both the Watch and the nail file!

Laurie B. (1/2011)

Was in such a hurry to get your locket that I did not notice your accommodation on price. I am happy to pay your asking price. You have been wonderful in sharing your collection with me and your pricing on the lockets was very fair. Look forward to doing more business with you.
