ANTIQUE ART DECO BROOCH with LARGE FACETED QUARTZ GEMSTONE
AUTHENTIC 1920's PERIOD PIECE
UNIQUE TAPERED DESIGN
STONE SETTERS MARK S or POSSIBLY 5
Because of the stone setter's mark I thought it may be a very early Eisenberg piece. However, I do not know that Eisenberg ever used genuine gemstones in their jewelry. But every company, once in a while, designed with components that were way out of their normal realm.
I know this from being a buyer and consultant of vintage costume jewelry for a huge antique buying company. There I met a lady whose husband worked setting stones in early Eisenberg jewelry. He set colored stones in art deco jewelry that was supposed to have clear stones in it. He did it just for her because she liked colored stones. He brought those brooches home for her. I was able to purchase them from her! I met ladies who sold new jewelry (now vintage) in the big department stores
The main error, which is written in a jewelry book, states that Robert pronounced his name with r clearly pronounced at the end. Not true! I met a lady who met Robert when she worked at a major store in New York (way back when). So I asked her about it. This is exactly what she said to me: "Oh yes, I met Robert many times. He came in to sell his jewelry, a very flamboyant man, wore a big, floppy hat. And honey, he was Robere !
So maybe this is an Eisenberg after all, lol!
Very good vintage condition. All paste stones are present, some have darkened which is typical for these old pieces. The quartz stone has very tiny, fine, abrasions, along the bottom edge of the main facet line, hardly noticeable but noted. Silver metal has a nice patina on it.
2 6/8" long x 1" across at the top.
