Sources indicate the Polowitz family managed Regency Novelty Company of New York from circa 1950-1970. Designs often feature large and impressive stones and color combinations. Brooches, bracelets and necklaces were usually signed but earrings were not. Such is the case with the earrings presented. We have seen a matching signed brooch and in conjunction with the earrings' design, materials and construction and are confident they are unsigned Regency. Each is set with rhinestones in citrine and deep hyacinth surrounding a pair of filigree capped, rod set swirled / marbled art glass cone beads in complementing colors. An explosive infusion of oranges and yellows. Warm brass tone metal finishes coordinate.
The clip earrings measures about 1 1/4 inches x 1 3/16 inches with a generous 1/2 inch maximum profile or height. Marquise rhinestones are approximately 15 millimeters x 7 millimeters; art glass beads, about 16 millimeters x 8 millimeters. Weight of the earrings pair is approximately 18 grams.
Condition is excellent vintage. All components original and intact. Rhinestones intact, retaining color and sparkle. Please do keep in mind that the earrings date to circa 1950s so the stones are not as brilliant as when new. Glass beads free from chips, nicks, cracks or breaks -- spectacular swirling of yellow and orange "ribbons" within. Brass tone finish intact with appropriate patina. All soldering secure. Earring clips strong and secure. Clean. No damage / no repairs. Light to moderate wear. Excellent vintage.
The earrings are not signed. Previous examples have been seen of a signed matching brooch. In conjunction with characteristic features, we are confident they are Regency's work. Circa 1950s.
