ATTRACTIVE NECKLACES MADE FROM ORIGINAL ANTEBELLUM POTTERY FROM NEW ORLEANS HISTORIC SITES

The following grouping of necklaces was designed around attractive pottery fragments excavated in old New Orleans and date before the Civil War. A while back we saw similar necklaces created from pottery from Charleston and decided to have the artist create some New Orleans pottery necklaces for us since we had a stock of locally found fragments in stock. These fragments date from the 1820's to the Civil War and all were excavated in downtown New Orleans by local bottle hunters. No two are alike and these stylish necklaces have a story to tell, each one is unique!

THE SPANISH PICAYUNE - AN EARLY COIN USED IN NEW ORLEANS MOUNTED IN A SILVER FLEUR DE LIS, THE FRENCH SYMBOL OF NEW ORLEANS

4283 - The fleur de lis is the French symbol most associated with New Orleans and the Spanish half real was legal tender in New Orleans until 1857 which was basically the equivalent of a half dime. One of the daily New Orleans newspapers, THE PICAYUNE, was named after the small coin as it cost a "picayune" to buy a paper. We have combined a picayune with a .999 silver fleur de lis pin that can be worn as a pin or hung as a pendant. We have 3 years available. 1 3/4" x 2.0" 1799 CARLOS IIII, 1798 CARLOS IIII, 1808 CARLOS IIII. Your choice................................................$185.00/each

CHOICE ANCIENT ROMAN DENARII SET IN 14K GOLD BEZZELS

We offer three different Roman silver denarii in exceptional condition set in 14 K gold bezels with a brushed Florentine finish. We had a group made five years ago when we were affiliated with a shop in French Quarter when gold was $800 an ounce. We found these three in the safety deposit box and are offering them at the same prices marked in 2007. What an historic gift and the coins are in exceptional condition:

4284 - THE EMPEROR TRAJAN, 98 - 117 AD, silver denarius. Bust of Trajan right, reverse: Concordia seated holding a cornucopia, choice extremely fine condition. Trajan Latin: Marcus Ulpius Nerva Traianus Augustus; (18 September 53 AD - 9 August 117 AD) was Roman Emperor from 98 AD until his death. Officially declared by the senate as optimus princeps ("the best emperor"). Trajan is remembered as a successful soldier-emperor who presided over the greatest military expansion in Roman history, leading the empire to attain its maximum territorial extent by the time of his death. He is also known for his philanthropic rule, overseeing extensive public building programs and implementing social welfare policies, which earned him his enduring reputation as the second of the Five Good Emperors who presided over an era of peace and prosperity in the Mediterranean world.........................................$450.00

4285 - THE EMPEROR CARACALLA, 192 - 217 AD, silver denarius. Bust of Caracalla to the right as Augustus, Reverse: Mars standing left. Choice extremely fine, bold high relief portrait.

The eldest son of Septimius Severus, for a short time he ruled jointly with his younger brother Geta until he had him murdered in 211. Caracalla is remembered as one of the most notorious and unpleasant of emperors because of the massacres and persecutions he authorized and instigated throughout the Empire. Caracalla's reign was also notable for the Constitutio Antoniniana (also called the Edict of Caracalla), granting Roman citizenship to all freemen throughout the Roman Empire, which according to historian Cassius Dio, was done for the purposes of raising tax revenue. He is also one of the oemperors who commissioned a large public bath-house (thermae) in Rome. The remains of the Baths of Caracalla are still one of the major tourist attractions of the Italian capital...................................................$450.00

Elagabalus (Marcus Aurelius Antoninus Augustus, ca. 203 - 11 March 222), also known as Heliogabalus, was Roman Emperor from 218 to 222. A member of the Severan Dynasty, he was Syrian on his mother's side, the son of Julia Soaemias and Sextus Varius Marcellus. In his early youth, he served as a priest of the god Elagabal (in Latin, Elagabalus) in the hometown of his mother's family, Emesa. Upon becoming emperor, he took the name Marcus Aurelius Antonius Augustus. He was called Elagabalus only after his death. In 217, the emperor Caracalla was assassinated and replaced by his Praetorian prefect, Marcus Opellius Macrinus. Caracella's maternal aunt, Julia Maesa, successfully instigated a revolt among the Third Legion to have her eldest grandson (and Caracalla's cousin), Elagabalus, declared emperor in his place. Macrinus was defeated on 8 June 218, at the Battle of Antioch. Elagabalus, barely fourteen years old, became emperor, initiating a reign remembered mainly for sexual scandal and religious controversy. Amidst growing opposition, Elagabalus, just 18 years old, was assassinated and replaced by his cousin Alexander Severus on 11 March 222, in a plot formulated by his grandmother, Julia Maesa, and carried out by disaffected members of the Praetorian Guard........................$450.00
