Jewellery company Sandor
American Jewellery company Sandor (1938-1972) began its history in 1938, when it was founded by Sandor Goldberger. Characteristic of his decorations are considered pastel flowers in a frame made of silver, decorated with enamel and rhinestone. He also produced the figurines, which are now rare. The company ceased its operation in 1972. Sandor Collectible Jewellery show original design and high craftsmanship. Most of the work is marked “Sandor”, but released in 1939 and 1940 costume jewelry had the signature “Sandor Goldberger.
Sandor Goldberger attempted to make his decorations look like real jewel ornaments. Therefore Sandor jewellery was often produced in silver and the less noble metals masters of the company tried to hide under a layer of gold. In addition, in the production of Sandor jewelry often used black (or “Japanese”) coating, which in addition to aesthetic, served a practical function: not gave rust to metal they were covered with a patina.
Sandor Jewelry was often decorated with clear and colored sequins, artificial pearls and colored enamels. Enamels became “calling card” of the brand after the place has taken a leading designer Beatrice Grace McGowan. She decided that the girls’ best friends are not diamonds, but flowers. With this began “flower” period, which brought fame to the company. McGowan made delicate flowers, lush bouquets, swollen buds of branches, on sketches. The decorations were made of silver, gold-plated or black lacquered alloys, decorated with high-quality enamels, seemed about to come to life.
Although along with the “flower” line under the name Sandor produced other collections of jewelry, but it is thin and delicate enamel flowers became the main object of desire of fans of Sandor of the middle of the last century, and collectors of antique and vintage costume jewelry of this century. Becoming once the proud owner of a bouquet of Sandor, then it is almost impossible to confuse this product with ornaments of any other brand.
