About Us
Welcome to JG Gallery, my Ruby Lane Shop! My name is Joyce Geeser and I’m so glad you stopped by. I hope you’ll stay a while and look around, and check back often as I will be adding new things regularly.

I’ve been collecting and studying antiques for many years and thoroughly enjoy searching for unique and quality things from the past. If you’re a collector from the Mid-West you’ve probably seen me shopping at area antiques shows, shops and outdoor markets. Road trips during the year also take me to other parts of this beautiful country.
.
Collecting antique perfume bottles and related antiques was my first love, and a passion that I wanted to share with others so when the opportunity presented itself I became involved in organizing a club for perfume bottle collectors. I am one of the founding members of the International Perfume Bottle Association (IPBA) and became its first Publications Editor, a position I held for 5 years. Sometime later, I served on the Board of Directors as Vice President for another 4 years. This fabulous Not-for Profit organization is 28 years old and still going strong with new members added regularly.

My love of antiques and the challenge of researching them lead to an interest in the appraisal profession, and eventually to becoming an appraiser of personal property and antiques. The college-credit appraisal classes that I completed were through the American Society of Appraisers. I've been appraising locally for over 15 years, and I take pride in the work that I do and the well-researched document I present to my clients. I conduct my appraisal business in an ethical manner and never purchase anything that I appraise.

I’m happy to say I have recently celebrated my first year on Ruby Lane and have made many lovely new friends. It gives me great pleasure to offer beautiful and unique treasures from my collection for others to enjoy as much as I did. I’m pleased to share a few comments here from some of them.

Dear Joyce. The purse just arrived....I could hardly wait to get the package open. Thanks so much for so carefully wrapping. First of all, the purse is gorgeous. Very special, especially with the poem and picture of Mildred Berry. The purse very much reflects her personality, as shown in the picture. I feel honored to own this item. What an incredibly meaningful item.
Thanks Joyce! Pam

Hi Joyce - This may be the prettiest spoon that I have! It will accompany a beautiful Haviland bowl. Many thanks. Laura


It is outstanding! Thank you so much.
It is one of the most beautiful pieces I have seen and I'm so thrilled to have it in my collection… My best wishes to you, Cheryl


Hello Joyce. My pair of Worcester cups and saucers arrived this morning - they are super! Love them. I must say that your packing is some of the best I have experienced, well wrapped, double boxed and not too much tape (unnecessary/excessive tape has often left me fighting to get in a package leading to a silly risk of breakage!). Thank you for such a pleasant international transaction. Cheers, Chris
