Arthur Pepper was the owner of Mode-Art, a New York based company that marketed a variety of jewelry in a wide range of prices. The dates of operation are unclear, but most signed pieces appear to have been produced from the 1950's through the 1970's.
This lovely Victorian-style lavalier, reminiscent of Florenza jewelry designs, has a delicate gold-tone metal designed two-piece drop which is connected to the necklace by two fine gold-tone link chains, accented with three small faux turquoise beads. The entire drop measures 4" in length. The necklace which is composed of the same gold-tone link chain measures 16" in length with a spring clip clasp. One section of the drop is marked "Art" with a copyright symbol which was used after 1955. Near mint condition; delicate, classic motif.
