The shop has been located in Old Town Alexandria since 1980 and is know for antique & estate jewelry and sterling silver flatware and hollowware and stocking unusual and unique items that are not commonly found.
The jewelry selection includes rings, brooches, bangles/bracelets, earrings, necklaces. Victorian and Art Deco gold watch chains are favorites as well as cameos carved both in shell and hardstone.

There is a large collection of sterling silver souvenir spoons depicting historical locations like Mt. Vernon, VA. or events like the St. Louis World's Fair. As far as the sterling holloware, the range includes Georgian sterling cake baskets to Art Deco sterling mustard pots with cobalt blue glass liners.
It's an eclectic mix of intriguing merchandise with porcelain figurines displayed with the silver along with hatpins and half dolls. Also there are many small bronzes mostly European depicting animals and traditional subject matters.
On the walls are oil paintings and color etchings by Austrian artist Luigi Kasimir along with a collection of Danish Christmas plates by Royal Copenhagen and Bing and Grondahl.
