RARE ANTIQUE SMALL OLIVINE/EMERALD NOVA GEM 1915 TOWER OF JEWELS:
$516

A stunning piece of History, sale is for an incredibly hard to find SMALL (7/8") Olivine/Emerald Nova Gem from the Tower of Jewels in San Francisco. This is the small size Novagem 7/8" or 22mm in size,Marked 'Patents Pending' . This is notthe 'souvenir' Novagems that are marked 'NovaGem Official Souvenir'. This Novagem wasactually used on the Tower of Jewels. The Tower of Jewels was the 435 Foot Tall Centerpiece Building of the PPIE. Itwas taller than the other fairbuildings by a couple of hundered feet, and was positioned at the Main Scott Street entrance to the fair. The primary outstanding feature of the buildingwas how it was decorated with 102,000 NovaGems--faceted cut glass jewels that hung over the buildings surface. As these jewels freely hung from thesides of the building, the breezes would make them independently sway, causing the building to shimmer in a way that people say was impossible todescribe. This effect was further increased at nighttime when an assortment of 54 searchlights hidden around the tower were pointed towards it,creatinga spectacular sparkling impression. The Novagems are mounted in brass hangers and the prongs are about 1/8" wide and tall. These NovaGems have been Stored in a Barn on family property for approximatley the last 30/40 years. Please checkmy other sales as I have more Nova Gems for sale.
