flyleaf: “This book is the catalogue raisonné of the Jokelson Collection of cameo incrustation, one of the greatest collections of incrustations ever assembled. Built over a period of sixty-eight years, this collection which numbers almost 400 pieces, is lavishly illustrated in color and duo-tone.
In addition to illustrating the beauty of the objects, this book, through the descriptive history of the origin and technique in creating them, as well as biographies of the makers, seeks to further your understanding and appreciation of antique cameo incrustation.
As an added bonus, this book gives us a brief look at a fascinating man, Paul Jokelson. Founder of the Paperweight Collectors’ Association, author, and collector, Jokelson has had a greater influence on the art of cameo incrustation than any other person in the twentieth century.
Never before has such a comprehensive collection of incrustations been documented so thoroughly. Paperweight and glass authority Paul Dunlop gives us a gratifying look at this world renowned collection.”
