Signed Catanzaro vintage silver jewelry (1959-1980)
Josephine “Jo” Catanzaro (1913–1988) and her younger sister Antoinette “Toni” Catanzaro (1914–2003) grew up in Buffalo, New York. In the mid-1950s, they took a jewelry making course and opened a jewelry shop in their native Buffalo. It was there that they created unique modernist sterling silver jewelry, branding it with their names “Jo Catanzaro”, or “Toni Catanzaro”. Noteworthy, the sisters received many awards while participating in national jewelry exhibitions. Today, jewelry created by the Catanzaro sisters has a high collectible value.
Notably, they also sold glass, ceramics, textiles, and wood items in their “House of Crafts” gallery created by other American and foreign craftsmen.
