Our gallery has been supplying historical enthusiasts with a selection of fine quality accessories for 25 years. Made from our original patterns, these designs are based on historical styles found in private collections, museums and libraries throughout the Knowne World. Below, you will find links to each of our family businesses and their corresponding website/Etsy shop. Thank you for visiting and we hope you enjoy exploring our products!

The symbols of Ancient Egyptian, Mayan, Native American and Aztec civilizations have always fascinated me. Since I was a child I have loved comparing the cultures that are so distant physically from each other but so close in archaeology structures and artifacts. The common thread of pyramids, gold and turquoise still fascinates me as an adult and has been the motivating factor in designing the jewelry you see in this shop.
Johnny Americano and their sister company Pride and Protest are the newest additions to our collection of family businesses. Johnny Americano specializes in vintage americana and nostalgia. They scour thrift stores and estate sales to find the coolest and most collectible vintage items. Papa had an extensive Hot Wheels and Texaco collection that was left to the grandkids. You will find it here along with several interesting and unique pieces from the 70s, 80s and 90s. Find our Etsy Shop here.
Pride and Protest was born after my grandaughter was brought into the fold to work for our parent company, Palace Gallery. She has taken over the hat and cockade department and decided to bring her passion for historical rosettes to the modern world. She hand folds and hand stitches each of the rosettes in her shop. Her collection ranges from political protest, LGBTQ+ pride, team colors, sports colors and is always open to creating a custom design for her customers. She also has conceptualized some 3D wall art from her rosettes. Find her Etsy shop here for your modern day rosette needs.
