HOLLYCRAFT
Joyce Chorbajian was kind enough to give me some information about Hollycraft and how it worked. I asked her about signed and unsigned pieces, and she did confirm that not all Hollycraft was signed. In addition, she said this:

"Hollycraft jobbed for houses like Weiss and Kramer, among others, and if those houses discontinued operating, Hollycraft might produce the better selling items but not put their logo on the design to maintain the original agreement with the jobbed manufacturer/distributor.  Of course today this can cause problems here and there, but it does explain why pieces will show up that have all the markings of a Hollycraft piece but not their logo.

 "Another thing about an unsigned piece is that Hollycraft might continue to sell, post the jobber no longer in business, after making some alteration in the piece. Once again, that simple change would protect both the jobber and Hollycraft from any infringement to an original agreement.

"Most copies usually have some sort of a logo, so those are really more of a problem then something like a piece that is without a logo." She also mentioned that Hollycraft never made jewelry for the Art company, even though some Art pieces look like Hollycraft items.

PLEASE NOTE: Regretfully, it is no longer possible to respond to individual questions regarding jewelry history, identification or value, or to offer written or verbal appraisals or opinions. The demand for this kind of information is absolutely too overwhelming for one dealer to fill. 
I love jewelry, but appraising and selling are two entirely different businesses, and I choose selling and research as my business.

Instead, articles are added on a regular basis to JEWEL CHAT on line Magazine, a wonderful reference for  information on many makers and styles of vintage jewelry.
