For sale here is a RARE vintage 1950s handmade sterling silver studio modernist necklace by famed American silversmith, Jules Brenner. An attractive and very wearable necklace from one of the greats of American mid century modernist jewelry! Here's a short bio from Marbeth Schon's marks article on Modern Silver magazine:
“Jules Brenner (1917-1991), a native of New York City, began his career as a painter and sculptor, but later, after working with Ed Wiener in Provincetown, turned to jewelry-making as his main focus. Beginning in 1953, he had a store in Greenwich Village for which he created modernist pieces, mostly in silver. In 1963, he moved his shop to Lexington Avenue and began working in gold, casting many pieces using the lost-wax process. He moved permanently to Provincetown in 1974 where he worked until his death in 1991.”
Great design with integral links and closure! Measures about 15" wearable length by 1/2" at widest, and weighs 51 grams total. Marked "Jules Brenner Sterling" on inside surface - see photos. Excellent vintage condition with just fine light wear as shown - please view the photos, read the description, and ask all questions prior to purchase. I am open to reasonable offers from serious buyers.
