Earrings, Sterling Silver, Art Deco Styled, Screw Back Earrings, By Van Dell.
When one thinks of the more popular designers of the mid-20th Century, the name Van Dell does not necessarily come to mind. It is not that the work of the designer is not fabulous, it is just that the pieces are not as often seen as some other designers such as Trifari, Sarah Coventry, Coro and the like.
The Van Dell Corporation was founded in 1938 in Providence Rhode Island. The company manufactured well-made sterling silver, gold-filled and gold-plated jewellery rather than more commonly made costume jewellery in the base metal. Many of Van Dell’s designs used cultured pearls and interesting rhinestones and other stones such as Austrian Crystals. They also included genuine hand-carved cameos. The jewellery was of high quality and was meant to resemble fine jewellery. The mark Van Dell was first used in 1939.
