TO THE VAULT (Your Hobby - And Your N«lghbor'«) By Dick Palmer Certainly one of the pleasures in visiting New York City is simple window shopping If you can manage to confine yourself to this. Most can't and the Iowa crew was no exception as we left with everything from a cake plate to a Honda helmet. My wonderlngs after the visit to the Chase Money Museum brought me into a block devoted almost entirely to diamonds and jewelry, new, antique, and unusual. This is 47th street off the Avenue of the Americas. Like an ice berg, only a portion of the industry was immediately, apparent as many of the doorways led' Info arcades with several shops. The total retail value of all the items on display must have been staggering. The display at store #12 of the Diamond Horseshoe Arcade particularly caught my eye as it was devoted to cameo and Wedgewood type necklaces and brooches. I was particularly attracted to a Wedgewood brooch about the size of a half dollar with a dark green background. The price tag I learned was around $35. This may appeal- high, but the obvious quality and general appeal would, I think, generally prevail given a buying mood. I introduced myself to the proprietor, Mr. Milton Heifetz, who regularly donates jewelry of this type as prize items for the Miss USA and Miss Universe contests. He very obligingly showed me a large oval antique cameo with several figures and magnificent detail. His future project is to design a frame worthy of the sublect. If any of my gentlemen readers are planning to visit New York on a budget with a wife who isn't, you had best stay away from Mr. Heifetz's shop. Of course, if the little woman has read this column, then you will not stay away and I suspect that the budget may be but a fond memory. - o - Although New York is certainly a hobby center, I just didn't have the time to get to some of the better known areas of concentration. The few coin and stamp shops I did happen across had average material at about normal market prices. My only purchase was a copy of Coin World, though I regret not having bought a British Trade dollar with the Bombay mint mark. - o - I didn't really explore much in Virginia Beach confining my activity or non-activity to the sand and surf, but within two blocks of the motel there was an antique shop, Jean N. Miller, and an auction gallery largely the diamond, watch, jewelry type, but the dealer was definitely not the usual high pressure type. I went in to check on two most unusual pictures that immediately caught my eye. 1 don't know exactly what to call this type of handwork. A piece of material with a picture of a family of quail in their natural habitat was turned into a embossed, three dimentional picture. The birds, the tree trunks, and several rocks were stitched around their outline and then stuffed to project them out from the background. The entire print was then sprayed with something to stiffen and turn the original white background into a light grey. One piece, the scenes were identical, had been sprayed with a darker brownish finish. The two together suggested either dawn and dusk or spring and fall. The old gentleman had purchased them from an estate although this was out of his usual line. The darker print had a very large, heavy frame which he thought to'liaVe some value, but I didn't. The lighter and really more attractive one had a small frame in white and gold. He placed the greater value on the large aiitt toe-lesser value on the small which I wanted. His wife arrived later in the day and we compared the two. If she had arrived earlier, the picture would now adorn her home instead of mine. - o - The Miller antique shop had some very fine and varied items although I thought the prices a bit high. However, the East tends to be this way by comparison. She had some interesting bottles salvaged from the sea including those with the glass marble stopper inside the bottle, Although of technical and his- toric interest, I felt that foi $20 I could live without. - o - On the way to Richmond and Washington, we stopped at a large shop with some nice Carnival specimens. One footed dish with the grape design had an unusual combination of blues when held up to the light, but there was no design inside the dish. Instead, it had that flat, heavy finish, which I don't like in Carnival. Actually, it was a rather silly design since the dish was heavily fluted, so you couldn't see the pattern unless your eyes were at table level. I like my pieces to have a more obvious beauty. You can hardly sit around all day holding dishes up to the light. My next columns will deal with Alexandria, the Virginia area and an unusual visit to the White House.
