SANDOR GOLDBERGER: Early 1930s - 1972
Sandor Goldberger founded the Sandor Goldberger Company in the early 1930s creating costume jewelry designs of a wide range of styles. To quote from Brunialtis’ book American Costume Jewelry, “ A constant in Sandor Goldberger’s products was…large dimensions, unusual subjects, sometimes ahead of his time, great variety of materials and stones…” Through the years, the company produced jewelry of sterling silver, gold plating, silver plating, and Japanned base metals with enamel coated clear and color rhinestone, poured glass stones, ceramic, faux pearls and imitation stones. From 1939 on, WWD regularly featured his collections and pictures of his designs. In the early 1930s, Beatrice Grace McGowan became Sandor’s leading designer producing wonderful colorful and naturalistic enameled flower designs done in sterling silver metal. Her designs set Sandor apart from other costume jewelry makers. The beautiful jewelry produced includes Aztec designs, designs of stamped color enamel figurals, dainty flowers and flower sprays covered with enamel. Mark: "Sandor Goldberger" in 1939-1940 and "Sandor". McGowan retired in the late 1950s after 20 years with Sandor. The company ceased production in 1972. Sandor jewelry is highly collectible especially the enameled flower pieces because of their beauty, wonderful sculpturing of the metal and their incredible likeness to the real thing.
