Erie Basin is a treasure chest of antique relics and 18th to 20th century gems, which is sure to enchant all the history and art lovers out there! Not only is the interior space itself visually appealing, with a polished black floor and matte white walls which puts the spotlight on the extraordinary collection of vintage jewelry, but the one-of-a-kind pieces found within Erie Basin’s walls are a positively dazzling selection of precious brooches, rings, earrings, necklaces, and cufflinks. Erie Basin houses relics from the Georgian, Victorian, Edwardian, Retro and Modern, and Art Deco eras and has recently installed an exciting new Egyptian Revival selection which includes a micro mosaic scarab bracelet, an 1870s carved wooden pharaoh, and emerald pharaoh earrings.
