Perhaps best known for Asian Faces jewelry, Paul Selenger’s companies did some fancy filigree as well. The gold color filigree on these clip-on earrings provides an interesting background to faux baroque pearls and aurora borealis stones. They date from the mid 1950s. Each measures 1 ½” x 1 ½” and both are in excellent condition. These are signed Selro Corp. although many Selro pieces are not signed. Selro and Selro/Selini pieces are a “must have” for a consummate vintage costume jewelry collection.
FYI: Selenger’s company made jewelry for Florenza, Hattie Carnegie and others before he founded the Selro jewelry company in 1949. The name Selro is a combination of his last name and his mother’s first name, Rose —hence the name Selro. The company lasted a brief 20 years and closed in the mid 1970s after being taken over by another company. During that period, he produced a second line of jewelry called Selro/Selni. Both Selro and Selro/Selini jewelry is highly collectible and always of good quality with a distinctive look. Discerning collectors can spot Selro and/or Selro-Selini jewelry whether or not it is signed.
