Description - Schreiner by Carole Tanenbaum

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. AUTHORS: Carole Tanenbaum is a passionate collector and connoisseur of vintage costume jewellery. Over 30 years, she has amassed one of North America's premier collections of costume jewellery totalling more than 30,000 pieces. Her jewellery has been showcased in many boutiques and luxury department stores as well as in films and high fashion editorials. Carole lives in Toronto, Canada with her husband, Howard, spending part of the winter at their Palm Beach residence. Eve Townsend holds an MA in Fashion from Toronto's Ryerson University, where her research focused on the history of costume jewellery and its relation to the democratisation of fashion. In support of this research, she was awarded an Ontario Graduate Fellowship (OGF) and a Social Science and Humanities Research Council Grant of Canada (SSHRC) for her thesis project: Searching for Schreiner: A Detailed Investigation of the Schreiner Jewelry Company c. 1932-1975. Eve lives in Toronto, Canada with her husband, Curtis. SELLING POINT: Schreiner jewellery is highly collectable and considered among the most coveted vintage jewellery and has never before been showcased, never mind in this luxurious format that covers virtually every style and design 596 colour images
