About UsI have always loved old "stuff", especially jewellery, but I started seriously collecting vintage costume jewellery in the late 1990's. A retired educator, I began to do research in the field of antique and vintage jewellery and became a v.c.j. dealer, buying and selling interesting pieces. My specialty is the jewellery and art of McClelland Barclay (1891-1943), and I have published a number of articles about him. I also have several other collections, including butterfly wing jewellery, enamelled sterling pieces, and French designers.
I founded the Toronto Vintage Costume Jewellery Club in 2005, and I am a supporter of Costume Jewelry Collectors International (CJCI.)
I am always looking for the best, most interesting vintage jewellery and collectibles that I can offer to you at a reasonable price. Expect some unique items!
If you do not find what you are looking for, please ask: many treasures have been tucked away, just waiting for the right buyer. You may also notice that items that you have been watching are no longer in my shop. Please ask if they are still available.
My long-awaited book about McClelland Barclay will be available by the summer of 2020. "McClelland Barclay: Painter of Beautiful Women and More" is an illustrated biography of the life of this multi talented man. There are chapters about his commercial and naval art, his fine art and sculptures, his jewellery and fashion designs, and the women in his life. Watch for updates about this first retrospective of McClelland's career from the Art Deco period until his death in 1943.
LAY-AWAY Plans will be considered for more expensive items (generally more than $300.00.)
