The history of the jewelry trade mark “HSB” began in 1948 and lasted for more than forty years. Registered at 542 Fifth Avenue, New York, NY, “Harry S. Bick & Son” was a family business founded by Harry S. Bick (1918–1993).
The company’s craftsmen created classic design jewelry typical of the 1940s and 50s – flowers, hearts, leaves, bows, embodied in brooches, pins, necklaces and bracelets. Some of the jewelry, and in particular rose flower brooches and earrings, are striking in their realistic three-dimensional design.
HSB jewelers handcrafted high-quality jewelry with the use of 12-18 K gold, sterling silver, natural stones, carved shell, and cultured pearls. The maker’s mark traditionally includes the initials “HSB” with a line through, as well as a hallmark of gold or sterling.
Harry S. Bick died in 1993 at the age of 75 and his firm ceased to exist.
