Signed Jomaz and Mazer Costume Jewelry
Mazer Sterling Art Glass Belly and Rhinestone Leaping Frog Brooch: This enchanting and incredibly lifelike 1040's frog brooch attributed to Joseph Mazer is crafted in sterling silver and set with a large art glass cabochon center. This version of the frog has rhinestones set in his legs and head. Most of the rhinestones were missing or dead so I have replaced them and returned him to his glory days! He has high dome ruby glass eyes which appear to glow. The frog is shown in Brunialti's "A Tribute to America" on page 136. His condition is excellent. A true American costume jewelry treasure!
Vintage Jomaz Sapphire and Clear Rhodium Plated Rhinestone Leaf Brooch: This stunning vintage brooch from Jomaz features a leaf and spay flower design, with heavy rhodium plating. The stylized leaf and ribbons are embellished with baguette rhinestones which are channel set like fine jewelry. The tip of the leaf is bead set with tiny chaton rhinestones. The center of the leaf is set with sapphire blue chaton rhinestones as are the floral spray on each side. All set in heavy prongs. The ribbons, curls and stems are bead set with small chaton rhinestones. The edges of the brooch have a milgrain texture, found in high end jewelry. These early pieces of Jomaz jewelry were made with the same techniques as fine jewelry, and have retained their condition over time because of the high quality of construction. There are a few rhinestones that have darkened slightly, but the sparkle in this piece is amazing! The brooch measures 2 1/2 by 1 3/4" and is signed JOMAZ.
Vintage Mazer Gold Tone Clear Rhinestone Drop Necklace: This lovely vintage necklace from Mazer features an ornate center design of tapered baguette, chaton and square cut clear rhinestones. A large teardrop dangles from the center. The raised squares bridge the center and connect from "wing" to "wing". The wide flat chain is substantial and leads to a fold over clasp. There are a few tiny rhinestones that have darkened, but I have left them original. The plating is in excellent shape. The necklace measures 15" straight across, but the "V" in the design adds a little more. It is signed Mazer Bros. on the clasp.
