Antique Elise Necklace
This is an antique item, precisely the same style Jane Seymour as Elise, wore in The Portrait and The Man of My Dreams soliloquy scene. A brilliant necklace, with 15 Crystal stones. Now you can re-create an "Elise Portrait" of yourself wearing this stunning necklace.
This antique piece is approximately 15 to 16 inches long. The crystals are hand cut and "open back", meaning they have no foil backing, the sparkle emanates from within and through the crystal. They do not need backing to be so lovely..in other words, all the fire you see is in the stone! This necklace will look good with anything, as pretty with a tank top and jeans as it will with a pretty dress--or a vintage dress, at the Somewhere in Time Weekend!
I spend a great deal of time searching the antique world for these hard-to-find vintage pieces, in precisely the same style Jane Seymour as Elise, wore. Jane herself wore one from us at the 35th Anniversary Weekend with her fantastic reproduction Soliloquy gown.
If you've longed to look like Elise did in The Portrait, this is your chance to own the same lovely necklace.

Jane Seymour by The Elise Portrait, "doing" the Elise Portrait
This amazing photograph, of Jane Seymour standing next to the Portrait of Elise, was taken in 2002, when Jane attended the Somewhere in Time Weekend at Grand Hotel. The photo is extraordinary for many reasons, not the least of which is that the background is red 'fabric', just like in the Hall of History where the key prop portrait hung in the movie, Somewhere in Time! Who could have imagined that this marvelous moment could be captured in such a memorable and meaningful way! Photo copyright by Jo Addie. 5 x 7 in Gold Frame, with easel back, or can be hung on the wall. An incredible image!!!

RARE! Somewhere in Time Original Japanese Flyers
I am so happy to be able to offer these! I am a collector of the foreign posters of SIT, which are all considered rare, and my favorite is the artfully designed and colorful Japanese poster. It is so lovely, featuring the moment before Richard first kisses Elise--The Most Romantic Kiss in Movie History!--and these flyers are really Mini Japanese SIT Posters, with cool Japanese writing and a photo in black and white on the back! (10 inches long and 7 1/4 inches wide--fits in 8 by 10 frame) Note the scene on the bottom, with Richard assisting Elise out of the carriage near the gazebo.
I'm not sure they still do this, but the Japanese printed up not only flyers, like this, but programs for movies (the Japanese SIT program is extremely rare). Flyers were given out at theatres. Because Somewhere in Time was anticipated to be a big hit there, they really went all-out in presenting this film on its release. The movie is so beloved--even revered--all along the Pacific Rim...it is amazing that I was able to acquire several of these flyers, uncirculated and in perfect condition.
I recommend that if you frame your copy, you use double glass, so you can turn it over and see the back-side whenever you like.
I have a limited supply, so if you want one of these, don't wait.
Beautiful poster of an original painting by artist Yvonne Della-Moretta (who was also an extra on "Somewhere in Time"). Yvonne owns "The Gold Mine" jewelry store in St. Ignace, MI. She did this homage to Mackinac Island's symbol flower, and "Somewhere in Time" depicting The SIT Pocket Watch (available here). High quality poster stock. 18x24 (standard size for easy framing)
