HOBE JEWELRY
1927 to 1992 in America

     Hobe et Cie was founded in Paris in 1887 by Jacques Hobe. His concept was to use fine jewelry techniques and non-precious materials to create jewelry for the middle class as well as for the wealthy.  Brought to America in 1915 by his son William, Hobe jewelry was popular not only with everyday customers, but also with the Hollywood stars and such luminaries as Flo Ziegfield.  Inspired by period jewelry of the past, Hobe jewelry had an historic flavor.

The name HOBE is synonymous with quality, especially in their earlier pieces. Although they made buckles and accessories in the late 1800s, their costume jewelry from the 1930-50's years are my personal favorites. Their wire-worked designs and fabulous stones create a unique old-world style. When they combine objects into their jewelry, such as in the elephant brooch below, they take creativity to a new high. The purse frames, done in conjunction with Josef makers of fine purses, are works of art.

GENEVIEVE   
black velvet purse with what looks like a Hobe frame in clear rhinestones, frame 
6 by 1, body 8-1/2 by 5-1/2. The velvet is beautifully gathered and there is 
a strap on the back so you can carry it as a clutch. Hobe purse frames are 
rarely if ever signed, and this one is no different.I could be incorrect about 
it being their frame. Inside the purse though is a very faint wording along the 
line of, Genevieve M... Gerstle, and I couldn't find any information on that 
maker.
