English vintage Hollywood costume jewelry
The history of British Company Hollywood began one hundred years ago, when in 1918 the Bloxidge brothers founded it in Birmingham. The company ceased to exist in 1972. Most of their jewelry came from Woolworths stores.
Traditionally, the jewelers of this company used colored enamels, marcasite, Austrian crystals, aurora borealis, and since 1950 – polishing. The main themes are flowers, leaves and animals, as well as the Scottish – Celtic theme and cameos. All decorations have “Hollywood” marking inside a rectangular.
Although the Hollywood brand name is consonant with the American brand Joseff of Hollywood, they are completely different companies.
There was also another company with a similar name – Hollywood Jewelry Products, which owned the Ricarde of Hollywood brand. However, this company did not exist for long, in the late 30s and 40s, and therefore its jewelry is extremely rare.
