Lots 1- 96 are from the collection of Edith Weber Antique Jewelry. Founded in 1960 by Edith Weber, the firm quickly became one of the leading antique jewelry dealers in the United States. Her son Barry and his wife Sonja Diamond-Weber joined the company in 1975. Barry Weber appeared on fifteen seasons of the Antiques Roadshow and was a specialist in historic jewelry. He taught antique jewelry appraisal classes at several colleges and universities, pioneering a series of hands-on seminars teaching the intricacies of the identification and evaluation of antique jewelry to novices and seasoned industry professionals. Jewelry from Edith Weber was worn on the red carpets of the Academy Awards and graced many major national magazines. Their store at The Carlyle was described as a historical jewel box with esoteric jewelry spanning the centuries. Barry Weber said "we are fearless in our taste," always searching from the rare and beautiful rather than an easy sale. The Edith Weber collection continues on our website as part of sale 3182T. Provenance: The Edith Weber Jewelry Collection.
