AVON Signed Modernist Pendant Designed by Seymour Murray KentAVON Signed Modernist Pendant Designed by Seymour Murray KentAVON Signed Modernist Pendant Designed by Seymour Murray KentAVON Signed Modernist Pendant Designed by Seymour Murray Kent

Striking modernist design is featured in this pendant signed AVON. It was designed in the 1970's by Seymour Murray Kent for Avon; he was a well know designer for the company. The pendant is comprised of an ivory oval sitting on top of the gold bar; just below is the brown marbled oval which finished off the modernist design. The chain is long, 24 inches, and is signed with a hang tag "Avon". The pendant is also signed as shown and measures 2 1/2 inches in length. Both the chain and pendant are in great shape; any discoloration or darkening is an artifact of the photography; there is no tarnishing or verdigris on this piece. A note about the company: Avon was founded by David H. McConnell as California Perfume. The company became Avon Products, Inc. in 1939. After 1971, Avon added costume jewelry to its long list of products. They contracted with existing jewelry manufacturers such as Krementz to produce their jewelry. They feature a wide range of styles and designs and some of their designer pieces by KJL, Jose Barerra, and Elizabeth Taylor, are extremely collectible. This is an early piece by Avon, and reflects the Op Art influence which was in evidence everywhere from Trifari to Lanvin jewelry.
