Joseph Skinger vintage silver jewelry (1946-1967)
Born on March 16, 1911 in Massachusetts, Joseph Skinger was a renowned mid-century metal artist, sculptor and jeweler who worked in Alburg Springs, Vermont. Notably, he became famous for the slalom ring, which he invented in the early 1950s. This was the time when Joseph attended art classes at the London Central School of Arts and Crafts.
Skinger traditionally used sterling silver when making handmade jewelry, and used wood, copper and fiberglass to create sculptural works. Unfortunately, the talented jeweler lived only 55 years. He worked for two decades until his death in January 1967.
Signed “Joseph Skinger”, these unique abstract jewelry pieces have become rare and highly collectible.
