I am looking for information and documentation on Posey holders made by Gorham.

Particularly what was the very first ones produced, are there any notable ones made for important persons and does Gorham hold any patent of invention on the subject.

This information is required for a book which is being prepared on posey holders and which will be published on the occasion of an exhibition.

Thanks in advance.

I believe Jeri Schwartz is considered by many to be the defacto American Expert on Posey Holders as well as skirt lifters and other intersting victorian period jewelry.

I am on the road so I don't have access to my files ... but her daughter runs an antique center in Stamford Ct. in which Jeri has a dealer space.


FYI Jeri is the author of:

  • The Official Identification and Price Guide to Silver and Silverplate
    isbn: 0876377843
  • The Official Price Guide: Holiday Collectibles
    ISBN: 0876378181

One more thing. If you find her .. please say hello form Scott & June
