Schreiner : Masters of 20th Century Costume Jewelery Hardback



Schreiner is a luxurious book offering the first concise history of one of North America's foremost designers of high-end costume jewellery, a genre of jewellery popularised by Coco Chanel and today one of the most collectable. Organised chronologically, the book begins in 1932 with founder Henry Schreiner and follows the company through the ups and downs of the next several decades.

The unusual colour combinations, hand-made settings, and use of custom-made stones set the company apart from their contemporaries, leaving behind a legacy for jewellery experts and admirers to study, covet, and collect to this day.

With hundreds of breath-taking colour photographs, this volume examines not only the cultural context and significance of Schreiner jewellery but also offers object-based analyses and archival documentation of various Schreiner pieces.
