Metallic green enamel slippers and red enamel lips. 2-piece construction using an old system of Sterling metal wiring. Weighty piece due to the sterling base metal. Measures 3 3/8" by 2" at widest.
Signed EISENBERG (barely discernable) and STERLING. Stone setter's mark of'F' as well.
Mark, design, construction, and use of Sterling date this to 1944 and is comparable to similar pins (Cleaning and Char/Chimney Sweep Women, Festival Dancer, and Can Can Dancer) shown on page 175 of Brunialti's'American Costume Jewelry - Art and Industry, Vol 1'. This one comes around very rarely. Excellent vintage condition with the slightest of wear to the enamel and a couple duller rhinestones. The jewelry pieces were an immediate success to the point that they were more desired than the dresses themselves.The company, Eisenberg Jewelry, Inc. Was officially established in 1940. Only the highest quality of metals, plating, and brilliant Swarovski Austrian crystal rhinestones were used in the construction of these pieces that portrayed bold designs. Rhinestones, imported from Czechoslovakia and Austria were used specifically to add glitter and color to each piece. Pieces made with sterling silver are highly prized and sought after!
