Vintage 1960s Designer Lisner Scroll Brooch

JUST SOLD

Vintage 1960s scroll brooch by vintage costume jewellery house Lisner. This solid brooch features a wave of ridged silvertone metal making up a scroll shape.

HISTORY
For nearly 30 years after its 1904 founding, Lisner imported and sold Elsa Schiaparelli's Parisian jewellery in the United States. In the '30s, the company achieved a higher profile by finally selling its own designs that employed Dupont's new coloured acrylic plastic called Lucite, as well as clear and coloured rhinestones (particularly aurora borealis) and lava stones, as well as chromed, silver-plated, and black japanned metal.

Currently, one of the most coveted vintage Lisner lines is the moulded plastic oak-leaf jewellery, which was only produced for five years in the '60s. Individual pieces like pins or necklaces without matching bracelets or earrings are more affordable. (Source: Collectors Weekly)
