Eisenberg's phenomenal sterling years circa 1943-1948, produced some of it's most endearing and enduring jewelry. Of substantial weight and substance, pieces were exquisitely crafted in sterling silver and set with art glass and rhinestones of the best quality. Along with the trusted Eisenberg name, most included a stone setter's mark.
The sterling silver fur clip presented, circa mid 1940s, features a cascade of blazing ruby red colored chaton rhinestones and soothing turquoise or teal colored chaton and marquise rhinestones. Arc and trailing ribbons are pave set with sparkling clear chaton rhinestones. Classic in design with a hint of art moderne, Eisenberg's mastery of showpiece jewelry is clearly evident. Costume at it's best.
The clip measures a generous 3 inches x 2 inches with a 5/16 inch profile or height. Teal marquises are approximately 15 millimeters x 7 millimeters; ruby red chatons, 8 millimeters. Weight of the clip is a hefty 50 grams.
