Kalo Objects with Stones


Kalo items in general are fairly scarce.   You can find a few relatively common pieces, like "puffy" cherry-form pins or smaller model 18 lobed lotus bowls at dealers' shops, but Kalo items with stones are difficult to locate -- and Kalo holloware and flatware with stones are the rarest of the rare.


The Kalo Shop made a fair amount of jewelry with stones, both in silver and gold.  You can see some of these here and here and here and here.  The Shop favored semi-precious stones such as amethysts, pearls, lapis, turquoise, topaz, malachite, moonstones, chrysoprase, carnelians, onyx, and even unusual ones like petoskey stone (fossilized glass-like coral from Lake Michigan).  In the very early Park Ridge days, Kalo also decorated a small amount of holloware and flatware with similar stones.   The small stone-set tray shown here is one of its trademark pieces.   The handles on the copper tray shown above (click for full-size photo) are extremely unusual, as most of its objects with stones were made of sterling silver.


The silver-mounted souvenir below may technically be a piece with a stone (a rather large one), but it's also the oldest inscribed Kalo item in our collection, dating to 1905.
