ANTHONY Aquilino Originals

A generous collector told me that, "He
emigrated to New York initially from Naples, Italy around 1920 and then
moved to Providence around 1940. I don’t believe he began
designing until around 1945/1946 but he probably worked for other
jewelers at the time. Unfortunately, he died in 1948 while a relatively
young man, so he personally only had a few pieces under his name. He
made the “cat in front of a large Lucite fishbowl trying to fish out the
goldfish” for one. I have two of those, one with red stones and one
with blue stones. (Although there are a lot of fakes out there.) They
both have a large oval plaque on the back with a signature.
"
After his death in 1948, his daughter Antoinette and his son Anthony
continued making jewelry under the “Anthony Creations” name or “Jewels
by Antoinette” or something like that, but their designs were nothing
like the original pieces. There are several patents out there as well."

expatriates and travelers.

primarily makers of souvenir spoons, charms, bracelets, and other small

FRED A BLOCK
Chicago, Illinois
1940-1949
Block was a Chicago ready-to-wear maker. It is thought that his line of
jewelry was made, at least in part, by the Sandor Goldberg Company of
New York, hence you will see some of the same pieces marked "Sandor" as
well. This information, can be seen in Brunalti’s "Tribute to American
Costume Jewelry" on page 141-2.

BLYTHE & BLYTHE

B. BLUMENTHAL
New York
This maker did start out making buttons in the Victorian era, but when
they made their jewelry isn’t information that I have found yet. From
looking at their work, I would think it was in the first third of the
20th century.

mark is a script "B" in a horseshoe

may have also made jewelry under the name
"Camille Bigney Quality"

BUTTERWORTH Jeweller
late 1890s to present

"I was thrilled to see the coral earrings in their original box. "G" was
George Butterworth, my great uncle. He was apprenticed in his home town
of Rochdale as a gold and silver worker when he left school, setting up
in Shipley, Yorkshire where he was later joined by his brother (my
grandfather) in 1900. They then traded as Butterworth Brothers (but
might have used up existing boxes of course). I have attached an image
of G Butterworth. The photo was taken in 1900 when he was 27."

The box lid says, "G. Butterworth, watchmaker & Jeweller, Kirkgate,
Shipley (England)", circa early 1900’s.

"In 1903 they moved back to Rochdale and set up here, where the
family has traded ever since. George died in 1930. His brother
survived him by 27 years.
I knew very little about the early days in Shipley except that a
guard dog named Piper was kept and he caught a burglar! Now I know
where the shop was and I have been able to make further enquiries
and gain more detailed knowledge about their lives at that time."
"I have never seen a box for G Butterworth before and did not know that
he had traded alone for a while.
With kind regards
Louise Butterworth
Butterworth Brothers "

CC
unidentified maker, sometimes confused with Carence Crafters.

According to
the Goldsmiths’ Hall, Foster Lane, London,


the mark of Catherine Anne Cockerell, first
registered in 1929 takes the form of the letters C.A.C. within an oval.
An English jewelry maker who worked
from the 1930’s to 1990, she was the daughter of Douglas Cockerell, the
English bookbinder of some renown. Her real name was Catherine, but
liked to call herself ‘Casty’. Her married name was Cobb. There was an
obituary of her in

The Independent
(British daily newspaper) in 1995. (Her family
was kind enough to bring her to my attention).
