American jewelry company Silson Inc. of New York produced costume jewellery for a short period – a little more than ten years. Founded in 1937 by two brothers Victor and Jack Silberfeld, British citizens, who later changed their name to Silson. The main designer was Victor Silson whose name we meet most frequently. However, among other designers who worked for Silson were Samuel Rubin and George Stangl. Three more jewelry designers – Howard Chandler Christy, Sue Harrison and Sally Stark also worked for the company.
Traditionally, Silson jewelery includes gold-plated metal, enameled brooches, lucite and rhinestones clips and earrings with various motifs and designs.
Noteworthy, Silson became famous for their line of patriotic and military jewelry produced during the WWII. In particular, brooches depicting American Eagle, Flag, Air Forces, British and American Ambulance Corps, or The Young Women’s Christian Association.
According to various sources, Silson Inc. of New York ceased to exist in the late 1940s.
