Founded by Leo Glass in September, 1928, Leo Glass & Company Inc. produced costume jewelry of the highest quality, sold in the best shops. According to sources, Leo Glass himself had worked for Lisner jewelry company for 10 years before starting his own company. Their first decorations produced in 1929, included such collections as “Season’s Sensation” and Hawaian Lei Motif Jewelry.” The designers who worked in the company – Leo Glass, Anne Glass, Beatrice Glass, and David Mir (since 1941), who previously worked at Trifari.
Gradually, jewelry designers began producing low cost jewelry affordable for any woman, using clear rhinestones, sterling silver and jewelry alloy. However, in the second half of the 1940s, originality and quality of products fell to an average level. Located in New York City, Leo Glass & Company Inc. went bankrupt in 1957 auctioned off on August 27, 1957.
