Interesting Kalo Items

 

We've been collecting Kalo objects for years, and have been fortunate to find well over a thousand Kalo items and sets.† Some of these are currently on our website (the index is here).

 

Our goal is to put them all on the website, but photography is the bottleneck.† Silver is highly reflective (see this page for details).† Taking pictures of it is like photographing a mirror, and it is a tedious process.†† But we're slowly working through all the objects.

 

You can see a lot of fine Kalo necklaces, rings, bracelets, pitchers, bowls (large and small), vases, repoussť objects, candlesticks, coffee and tea sets, and other categories by visiting the index.† But some categories (like modernist items) are in progress, so the objects are parked below.† Some pieces, like the odd wall pocket below, really don't easily fit into any category.†† Many of these objects, like the side-handled pitchers, syrup pitcher, and tab-handled tray, are among Kalo's best.
