Catalogue Note

Founded in the 19th century, the New York firm E.M. Gattle was originally located on Broadway where it counted stars of the theater and opera among its clients. In 1907, Gattle relocated to Fifth Avenue and Thirty-Eighth Street where they opened a retail store devoted entirely to high-end jewelry. One of their most illustrious clients was Enrico Caruso who ordered a ring to celebrate his performance in Rigoletto and allowed his photo to be used in the firm's publicity. The years after World War I were profitable for New York jewelers and Gattle, along with other notable firms like Dreicer and Tiffany & Co., were kept busy supplying jewels for stars of the stage as well as the affluent members of society who made up the audience. See American Jewelry: Glamour and Tradition, Penny Proddow and Debra Healy, pp. 82-83.
