Treasures from the Scott Atlanta Antique Market

While in Atlanta for the Gift Show, we took a day to scour the offerings at the Scott Antique Market. This monthly venue advertises over 2000 booths, so it's big. We found less this year than last, but still found some great items for the shop ... and a couple for our own collections. We still need to catalog these, then we will have them available in our shop. Some of them will make it to our online antique sales site as well.
This sparkling crystal crown drew our attention in a flash. The CDV album under it is in great condition.

Victorian jewelry is something we love to find, and we found some superb pieces.
What a wonderful selection of pins -- bar pins, watch pins and lingerie pins -- to add to our inventory. These are mostly gold-filled and all date from the late-1800s.
Here's a few more pins, some lovely lockets and a mid-century sterling bracelet. The two hand-painted ceramic pins are delicate and well-done.
This is a mixture of Art Deco era necklace chains, Art Nouveau pins, a superb micro-mosaic bar pin, and a turquoise bead clip with a gilt cameo.
I love estate silver items. The one on the left is an old card or cigarette case, and on the right is a small case possibly for ivory note pads. Both are from the Art Deco era. And I love the whimsical baby duck bib clips!
And finally, this nice collection of sterling pieces -- bracelets, a perfume bottle and a Celtic cross. In the middle is a wonderful snake bracelet.
