HASKELL/VRBA this fabulous portrait pin was made for a Broadway play
by Larry Vrba when he was the designer for Miriam Haskell Jewelry. There was more regal-looking jewelry made for the same
play, and I dream of finding other pieces. (Seen in Christie Romero’s
"Warman’s Jewelry, 2nd Ed, page 206.)

|DUJAY band members fur clips with|
colorful enameling and clear rhinestones, a really fine figural group. The man with trombone, no maker’s mark
but it is patent #17926 for 1939, 2-1/8". The man with drum, patent
17925 for 1939, 2-1/8". The man with French horn, patent 117925 for
1939, 2-1/8". These band series fur clips are in excellent
condition, as though they were never worn, making them doubly rare. According to Brunialti’s
"American Costume Jewelry: Volume I" on Page 162, the DuJay band series was
designed by Jacques H Leff in 1939. There are 5 members of the original band: a drum
major, a drummer, a trombone player, and French horn player and a bass drum
player, so there are 2 more besides these.
"charm" bracelet with colorful rhinestones figures set in gold tone, 7"

accents with red, brown, yellow and black enameling. The man in the
center carries water buckets on his shoulders, the women on either side
if him are sweeping, and the cats looking on. Bracelets similar to this
were made by everyone from Cartier (in karat gold) to Kreisler and other
costume jewelry makers, and their motifs include musical bands, wedding
parties and stars. A similar bracelet can be seen in the book
"Jewels of Fantasy" by Deanna Cera on page 167. And similar
pieces can be seen in Christie Romero’s book "Warman’s Jewelry", 2nd Ed,
page 159. View
