The iconic Eisenberg Original sterling silver and rhinestone bow brooch, complete with presentation box. Circa 1943-1944, Eisenberg's top tier inventory was and is the epitome of rhinestone showpiece jewelry. Approximately 48 grams of sterling is set with Eisenberg's extraordinarily clear, high lead content rhinestones in chaton, oval, square, marquise and emerald cuts. The classic bow design features large, billowing loops and curled tails. A brooch that is as fashionable in the 21st century as when created in the 1940s. Great design, materials, and workmanship never fade. Eisenberg's legend lives on.
The brooch measures an impressive approximate 3 inches x 2 1/4 inches with a 3/8 inch profile. Weight is a substantial approximate 48 grams. The included original velvet lined paperboard box is about 4 1/2 inches x 4 inches x 1 inch.
Condition is excellent vintage. All components intact. All rhinestones intact and brilliant. The stones in this brooch are magnificent. Absolutely clear / white, especially considering the piece is about 70 years old. There are no dark or dead stones. No clouds or yellowing. Sterling base free from dents or damage. Pin back secure. While in excellent condition, please appreciate the brooch's age. It will not appear brand new. That said...in some of the best vintage condition I've seen. The original box, however, shows it's age. I have included photos of the wear, fading and damage. It has been taped at some loosened corners. Lining is faded and there are various scuffs and scrapes throughout. Though worn, it has helped protect it's valuable contents and remains part of Eisenberg's history.
The brooch is signed on reverse: "Eisenberg" "ORIGINAL" and "STERLING". There is also what appears to be an "S" on the emerald cut stone setting back. This was probably the stone setter's mark of identification. The inner box lid is also lettered with "Eisenberg & Sons" and "ORIGINAL".
Tie one on with Eisenberg and be bowdazzled. Wrap it up at Cody's.
