This softcover collector's value and identification guide book is titled 100 Years of Collectible Jewelry by Lillian Baker, with 1991 values. It has full color pictures, a brief description of the item and any marks. What I liked best about this book is that every item is dated. In addition to jewelry from the Victorian era through the 1950s, the book has coverage of watches, hair accessories, hat pins, jewelry caskets, antique purses, and other related items. The book has no writing or tears but it does have minor thumbwear and a small stain or scorch mark on the back cover.
