Accessocraft Lion’s Head Doorknocker Pendant Runway Statement Necklace
The Accessocraft Products Company, N.Y.C., was founded by Edgar Rodelheimer and Theodore Steinman, and opened in 1930. The jewelry has been classified good quality with unusual gothic designs and was highly popular in the 1960s having had the Art Deco decorative look of the 1920s and 1930s. Many items had a style typical of the Renaissance, Victorian, Art Nouveau, and Rococo ornamentation. The unusual stones used in the jewelry were set in antique gold-tones or bronzed metals. Many of the 1930s pieces had a decidedly Art Deco look. The jewelry pieces were marked: “Accessocraft”, “Plastigold” in September 1940, and “Feathergold” since Aug. 1945
The company ceased operations in 1998.
This designer necklace is absolutely fabulous, stunning and a real show stopper! The fierce lion’s head is plated in gold with clear Austrian crystal eyes and has a twisted doorknocker in his mouth.

This piece would be an amazing addition to your jewelry box or a very decadent gift for vintage lovers!
