Matthew L. Burkholz & Linda Lichtenberg Kaplan

Available Now


Copper Art Jewelry presents twentieth century designs, especially by the masters Frank Rebajes of New York and Jerry Fells, known as Renoir of California. Popular when newly created in the 1950s, these designs are avidly sought after today. Copper jewelry by other artists and manufacturers are displayed as well, along with related silver and enamel jewelry and useful objects. Enthusiasm for copper items is expanding, and this is the reference that collectors, appraisers, and art dealers have been seeking.Twentieth century styling characterizes the abstract, free-form and whimsical designs in pins, bracelets, necklaces, sets, belts and useful objects which display the artful merits of copper. Over 300 color photographs show hundreds of examples, and the original art work, advertising, identifying marks and anecdotes round out this exhaustive new study. Much of the information about Rebajes and Renoir jewelry has not been available anywhere before.
