I have three granddaughters and some day I'll be able to explain to them the significance and beauty of these pieces. My feelings are that they may have belonged to wealthy people who enjoyed summer vacations on Lake George. They stayed at the big hotels and enjoyed parties every evening. The things that I collect are things that I want and enjoy wearing. I think about the people who owned these, the hand bags, the jewelry. Perhaps they were given for an occasion. Like the little sweetheart ring. Someone must have really loved her. It's sweet. And Howard gave it to me.
Because we don't dress up these days, I love taking them on our trips and dressing up. There is a real elegance to this collection.
