These are in Good Vintage Condition, having worn finish and some darkening stones,
however condition is consistent with age. Selling as found, I think most stones are original to the piece.
I can only imagine how fabulous these would be sewn on the shoulders Epaulettes style,
or stitched like a cuff bracelet on the long sleeves.
I have included a super fantasy sprkling video, these are so sparkly it is had to photograph so I had some fun with this
Fishel Nessler & Co. was founded by Henry W. Fishel and his brother-in-law Samuel C. Nessler around 1885 in New York, New York.
At some point, Theodore H. Fishel (whose relationship to Henry is unknown) joined the firm as indicated in several historical patents and legal documents dating to the early 1900s.
By 1910, the company was located at Broadway and Crosby in New York City.
One historical court document dating to 1914 mentions the business as being “better known” as the Crosby Jewelry Company.
This appears to be in reference to a seemingly unsuccessful storefront operated by Fishel, Nessler & Co.
This company’s history involves a fair share of drama relating to bankruptcy. In 1910, the financial situation was apparently so dire that Henry Fishel attempted to take his own life by swallowing poison in a Jersey City hotel room. He was revived, however, when family members found him.
Later, a filing report from 1913 indicates Fishel, Nessler & Co. sued Fishel & Co. for patent infringement. The document suggests that Theodore Fishel took over Fishel, Nessler & Co. as president after the company’s bankruptcy filing. Henry Fishel left to manage another company, Fishel & Co., founded by his wife and son. Both men registered patents for Fishel, Nessler & Co. in the very early 1900s, including buckles as well as jewelry items such as rings, small brooches, and bar pins.
These sew ons are signned FN.CO an early signature
Fishel Nessler was best known for the Art Deco style necklaces,
pins and earrings made in the 1920's and 1930's using high quality Austrian crystals
and rhinestones beads or cabochons and simulated stones pave set into sterling silver,
silver and rhodium plated base metals. The company ceased operations in 1937.
Fishel Nessler jewelry jewelry was very limited production and therefore difficult to find. They used Sterling and silvertone metal,
possibly "silveroid" (although not marked silveroid, Fishel Nessler was known for using this metal in their jewelry),
studded with rhinestones
Other documentation on this entity is sparse, but most resources indicate that the company went out of business in 1937
