The Carl-Art Company was created in 1936 by partners Carl Schraysshuen and Arthur Loercher. Carl emigrated from Germany to America in the late twenties or early thirties to work at the Speidel Company in Providence Rhode Island. Arthur was an American businessman and friend. Disillusioned with Spiedel, Carl and Arthur decided to go into the jewelry business for themselves. Carl soon churned out over 30 patents for jewelry in the 1940s.
Once you've inspected half a dozen pieces or so of Carl-Art jewelry, certain identifying features stand out, besides the distinctive arrow mark. First, the company only produced higher end gold, silver or gold-filled pieces and they are marked as such. Second, scrolling floral vine patterns are prominent in many pieces from the 1940s. In addition, they used ample rectangular baguette-cut rhinestones in their pieces.
