Henry Schreiner, originally from Germany, came to the United States in 1923. It is unclear the exact date he started his jewelry company, 1939 - 1940, which continued producing quality jewelry until the late 1970's. Noted for its distinctive style and high-quality materials, the name Schreiner is highly prized by collectors.
This fantastic demi-parure, circa 1950's, consists of a floral brooch composed of slender, silver-tone, open branches, covered with flowers and leaves in alternating combinations of prong-mounted, faux mauve pearls, peridot and amber rhinestones, in round, marquise and emerald shapes of varying sizes. The clip earrings carry the same motif with a single flower and leaves. The brooch measures 3 1/4" in length and 2 1/4" in width and has a safety clasp mechanism. The earrings are 1 1/4" in width and have secure clips. The brooch and one earring is marked "Schreiner - New York" on an oval cartouche. Very good vintage condition with no damage or replaced sets. A super set.
