Miami, Florida based family owned company Originals by ELVIRA & JACKIE CORP began its activity in the 1970s and ceased to exist in 1997. Its president was Ulises Pino, treasurer Elvira Pino and secretary Jacqueline Causer, according to official records filed in 1987.
Although the company operated for no more than two decades, it created memorable unique pieces that are collectible today. Traditionally, the craftsmen of this company used porcelain, rhinestones, plastic, art glass and faux pearls. Also, they manually painted delicately shaped faces – red lips, black eyebrows, wonderful eyes lined with lashes and a splash of blue eyeshadow… These beautiful female faces resemble the style of the great Gatsby girls of the Art Deco era. Noteworthy, all these vintage pieces have a distinctive markings on the back “Elvira and Jackie”.
