VINTAGE Accessocraft *signed* Silver Lion’s Head Doorknocker Earrings
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.
These gorgeous earrings are iconic pieces in a lustrous silver tone with clear rhinestone eyes, highly detailed and in mint, vintage condition. The doorknocker is a statement implying ‘do not trespass,’ knock before entering or face the wrath of the lions! Designers, including CHANEL, are embracing this concept, and symbol, as seen in the newly released lion’s head jewelry collections. These are pieces representing the strength and courage of the lion…a conversational, bold and confident statement in these times!
These pieces are heavy, sturdy, travel well and make an excellent addition to your jewelry wardrobe. These beautiful clip-on earrings weight half an ounce each, are signed ‘ACESSOCRAFT N.Y.C. ‘ and measure 1.5″L x .75″W.
