   BARCLAY brooch of green enameled leaves, red enameled ladybug and clear rhinestone pave pods, a large 3-5/8" by 3". Barclay jewelry was made by by Rice-Weiner, Alvin and Robert Rice, Louis Mark, circa 1950, Rhode Island. This brooch is unsigned but came from the company archives. It comes with the BARCLAY original design art work for this brooch. It is interesting to see that the original idea was for the pods to be green enamel, but in the finished brooch leaves are green instead. The design process of jewelry is documented here. To see more jewelry design art work, click HERE. I have not so far seen another brooch like this and often wonder if it was made as a sample but never put into production.   View   #X23718

BAUER JEWELRY
By Dorothy Bauer 1982-2008
I spoke to Dorothy on the phone not long ago, and she gave me some interesting information about her jewelry. she made far more than just holiday pins! Her rhinestone pieces were sold in I. Magnums, Macys, and other big stores. They had about 50 workers making the jewelry at their height of production. She made rhinestones jewelry from 1982 to 2008. Her degree was in art, and she did large blown glass sculptural pieces originally, but moved to glass and then rhinestone jewelry.

Her rhinestone jewelry was almost always signed. Her husband Robert worked in their jewelry business too. Their rhinestone pieces were made using no torch, but rather low temperature irons in order to protect the rhinestones.  She used Swarovski stones, which are of such high quality and so brilliant. In teh limited edition pieces they never really ran 120 of any item, not that many by far she said. They just guessed how many they might run before starting the series.

She has a dozen pieces in the Swarovski Museum. Worked with designer Moschino and did 150,000 pieces for him. Also did Disney, Felix the Cat, Frances Ford Coppola's "Dracula", and jewelry for the "NFL for Women" including logos, team names etc. Sadly her pieces have been reproduced to be careful what you buy and from whom you buy it.

FRED BLOCK aqua rhinestone bow brooch with clear rhinestone accents set in gold tone, 3". According to Brunialti's "American Costume Jewelry: Volume I" on page 39, Block was based in Chicago at the Merchandise Mart and made ready-to-wear clothing as well as jewelry for a short time. Starting in the late 1930s, they probably made jewelry until about 1950s. Sandor Goldberg of Sandor jewelry probably designed and made some of their jewelry.     View   #X36774 FRED BLOCK jelly belly snowman brooch with ceramic face circa 1945, 3-1/8".

FRED A BLOCK brooch with brilliant square aqua unfoiled rhinestone, aqua marquis and yellow, topaz and clear rhinestones set in gold tone, marked "Fred A Block" on the back, circa 1940, 3-3/4". According to Brunialti's "American Costume Jewelry: Volume I" on page 39, Block was based in Chicago at the Merchandise Mart and made ready-to-wear clothing as well as jewelry for a short time. Starting in the late 1930s, they probably made jewelry until about 1950s. Sandor Goldberg of Sandor jewelry probably designed and made some of their jewelry.     View   View   View   View   #X36722

 

 

FRED BLOCK rare Lucite jelly belly flower trembler brooch. This extraordinary piece is one of the most rare jelly belly pieces ever made. A similar Fred A. Block pin is featured in the Brunialti's book "American Costume Jewelry" on page 177. A good friend of mine owned that piece several years ago, but neither of us has ever seen this style with the trembling parts before. This has five open backed blue rhinestones petals each set on it's own spring to impart wonderful movement and each with a calyx of clear rhinestones set in silver tone metal. Bezel set center rhinestones in pink are set with six prongs cups and set on wires. The eight carved Lucite jelly belly leafy petals are held in place with gold tone metal veins. Other than some light wear on the gold tone finish this is in excellent condition, amazing for it's age. It is beautifully crafted, wonderfully dimensional and one of the best jelly belly pieces I have ever seen. It is 3-1/2" by 3-1/2".   View   View   View   View   #X37811

BLOCK Fred A Block sterling butterfly fur clip with unfoiled rhinestones in green, golden, pale yellow and clear, all in gilt sterling, 3-1/2" by 1-1/2". 
 Block was a Chicago ready-to-wear maker. It is thought that his line of jewelry was made, at least in part, by the Sandor Goldberg Company of New York, hence you will see some of the same pieces marked "Sandor" as well. The Vogue company made similar pieces as well. This information, can be seen in Brunalti's "Tribute to American Costume Jewelry" on page 141-2.

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.
