$35.00 Art Nouveau Style Freirich Brooch Pin. This signed brooch is simply a treasure. It has a domed look to it. Measuring 1-1/2" across and 1-1/8" high.

While this brooch looks Victorian, it actually dates from the 1960s when the manufacturer began signing its costume jewelry. Excellent condition.
Freirich was started by Solomon Freirich in the 1920's when he bought Maison David, a major manufacturer of hats, dress trimmings and ornaments. In France, the name stayed as Maison David, but in the US, it was changed to Freirich. The mainstream of its business remained garment trimmings, dress and hat ornaments as well as hat pins. Freirich also produced buttons for famous American and European designers such as Chanel and Dior. In 1955, Arthur Freirich, Solomon's son, joined the firm and increased it's costume jewelry line. Freirich's jewelry has been mistaken as being Victorian, but they didn't start signing their jewelry until the 1960's. So if the piece has the Freirich signature, you know it wasn't made before then. Freirich closed in 1990.
