Deco Jewelry

DECO
is the decorative, architectural
and jewelry style from about 1925 to 1940. Characteristic features are
stylized forms, geometric designs and the use of metals, plastic and
glass. Deco is both an era and a style, so pieces made later in the 20th
century may be Deco inspired as well.

J.A. Cohen, Netherlands, Art Deco style marcasite and 835

bracelet is 7-1/3" by 1-5/8", brooch 4" by 1-5/8", and pendant clip back
earrings 2-1/3". Other pieces by this maker can be seen in the Christie’s
Elizabeth Taylor Auction in December 2011,

HERE
. Mr. Cohen lived in Amsterdam, but has since passed away. He
was born in 1941 and died in 1993. According to Ginger Moro’s wonderful
book, "European Designer Jewelry" on page 233, Cohen found vintage molded
glass elements in Paris and combined them with modern silver, onyx,
marcasites and chrysoprase to fashion his Deco inspired jewelry. According
to Cohen, he was also inspired by the Amsterdam School designs from earlier
in the 20th Century. This is one of the best sets I have had in the entire
twenty years I have been in business!
