Eldred's offers slices of Americana

Frances Mascolo reports in the Boston Herald on the standing room only spring Americana sale in East Dennis, including work by Dorrie.

Colorful Arts and Crafts pieces by English jeweler Dorrie Nossiter attracted high interest and strong prices. A jeweled brooch in the form of a wreath with sapphires, emeralds, moonstones and pearls, with a sapphire-and-ruby insect was estimated at $3,000 to $5,000 and fetched $8,625. A Nossiter echelle necklace with citrine drops surrounded by clustered pastel gemstones, pearls and emeralds, with strands of pearls was estimated at $3,000 to $5,000, and reached $11,500; and an amethyst-and-pearl brooch was $1,092. A Nossiter jeweled cluster ring with a center peridot, surrounded by citrines and aquamarines and with gold bead accents, went out at $977.50.
