This beautiful sterling necklace dates to the late 1940s early 1950s. It features a cast Hindu goddess in sterling, plated with gold. Designer Eugene Bertolli. These pieces are quite hard to find as they were made in very limited quantities in some cases, less than 25. We would love to see a matching bracelet or earring set.

During the 1940s The Napier Co. produced a large variety of bow and bow knots designs. This is a c. 1940s die-stamped vermeil sterling Retro-style fur clip marked NAPIER STERLING. The gold plate is a lovely rose color. This design was hand manipulated so each bow varies slightly.

This is an extraordinary Napier brooch that seems to have been produced in limited numbers. Often designs within a grouping were made in quantities of 25 or less. As someone who has studied Napier for over 22 years, I have seen this piece three times. The brooch features beautiful curvy open metal work suspending an array of silver-plated and glass charms including a crown, gryphons, and a bee. We are very excited to be able to share this piece here!
