NOTE:
As I understand it, Florence Nathan was the assistant to, and eventually married, the owner of the company that manufactured Eisenberg jewelry. Her name is on the patents, but she did not actually do the design work.

   PURPLE and clear rhinestones unsigned brooch. This is NOT an Eisenberg, but is so very similar. It is a good example of why we must be very careful in identifying unsigned pieces by patents drawings.   View   View   #Y16553

Regarding the attribution of the Florence Nathan patents to Eisenberg Jewelry, Jim Katz says, "On page 179 of  Brunialti's book,  A Tribute to America, there is a February 1942 Vogue advertisement. Under the ad the Brunailti's state, "Eisenberg jewelry designed by Florence Nathan."  Two of the patents are identical with two of the pieces in the ad, items "H" (bow pin) and "D" (bracelet). Even though the ad states "Eisenberg Ice" in its title, inside it says,  "Each Piece Hallmarked Eisenberg Original". Also the patents were all filed together and granted  in May of 1942. 

Bobye Syverson says that Florence Nathan was not actually a designer, but was the wife of the owner of Manhattan company Fallon and Kappel who manufactured Eisenberg jewelry at the time.  Florence was the assistant to Mr. Kappel.  In 1943, Florence married Murray Silverman, who joined F&K shortly after World War II and was in charge of production. When Mr. Kappel became sick in the late 40s, the Silverman's bought the business from him. (This information is from a VFCJ Newsletter interview with Ruth Kamke, the Eisenberg designer.)

PLEASE NOTE: Regretfully, it is no longer possible to respond to individual questions regarding jewelry history, identification or value, or to offer written or verbal appraisals or opinions. The demand for this kind of information is absolutely too overwhelming for one dealer to fill. 
I love jewelry, but appraising and selling are two entirely different businesses, and I choose selling as my business.

Instead, articles are added on a regular basis to JEWEL CHAT on line Magazine, a wonderful reference for  information on many makers and styles of vintage jewelry.
