VINTAGE COSTUME JEWELRY
Daniel W. VanArsdale, 7/2007, 10/2010, 5/2011, 11/2012
(8/25/2016) none of the below links to Picasa albums are
working. This is due to incompetence,
or deliberate sabotage, by
since all these were working since any changes I made.
Many others have the same problem,
and Google seems to be offering little or no help since
seems to be to
force everyone to use Google+, their attempt at social
networking. Even that route does not work. If you know
how to correct this please advise, or provide an
link. Google links I examined did not seem to apply.
Since 1987 I have
collected over a thousand different vintage costume jewelry
owl pendants. Almost all were purchased used, initially at
California swap meets and thrift stores, later on eBay. Most
were mass produced during a fad for owl pendants during the
1970's. Links are provided here to view the entire
collection. Each item is individually photographed and
documented. I hope this will assist collectors of
inexpensive jewelry and provide the general viewer with an
appreciation of this episode in popular design.
There are approximately 1250 items in the collection, representing
over 900 different molds (shapes or types). For many types I have
collected variations such as both a goldtone and silvertone
example, or different colors of enamel. Of the 1250 pendants, over
425 are signed on the back. Initially I collected all categories
of owl jewelry. But there are so many that budgetary and space
considerations incline one to specialize. Pendants have the
advantage of ease of display - they have a loop
for suspension (the "bail"), and most lie flat in contrast to
Pendants less than one inch in length are likely charms or
detached earrings, though one pendant just one half inch long was
an 8 inch chain. Larger pieces may actually be watch or key chain
wall hangings or even Christmas ornaments. Also included are
have both a bail for suspension and a pin for fastening to fabric.
My approach to collecting costume jewelry has been influenced by
long established conventions in coin and stamp collecting. There
is an impossible attempt at completeness, and thus an interest in
very common and undistinguished items as well as the
identification of variations and rarities. In addition, I have
sought to demonstrate how designers copy one another or modify
their own creations. There are many ways to collect costume
jewelry, such as by designer, material, style, period, animals,
claim is made here that my way is more appropriate than any other.
If it can escape the bane of fraudulent copying, inexpensive
should provide a rich province for creative collecting. Each piece
once appealed enough to someone to get them to buy it. Some pieces
make us wonder how that could be, but these illustrate how much
can change as the years pass.
The collection is mounted on sheets of black velvet tacked
to walls. The pendants are hung in rows using 5/8 inch brads with
narrow heads. If a pendant has a particularly narrow opening in
the bail one can snip the head off the brad
so the pendant can be conveniently removed and replaced without
removing the brad. Rings or a bit of wire may also be used to hang
a piece. Chains are usually removed and tagged to identify which
pendant they go with. Some chains are left on and displayed if
can not be removed without damage or are customized to the
manner of organizing any collection is important, especially as
the collection grows. Designer names are prominent in collecting
and marketing vintage costume jewelry, and are featured in the
literature. But with many unsigned pieces other criteria must
apply also. Be
sure to organize your collection so that if you look at a picture
of a piece offered for sale you can easily check if you already
have it or not. For owl pendants the number of jointed segments
(if any) and the total length of the pendant are useful for this.
I used a Canon Power Shot S50 digital camera (5
million pixels) for the pictures here. All were shot without the
flash and using autofocus and
macro (close up) mode. I gave up on "manual" focus, and some
pieces presented a challenge to the autofocus. It often helped to
change the background color, as from black to orange. If I were
ever to do something like this again I would invest in a SLR
digital camera. It would also have been helpful to purchase a
though an improvised arrangement using a cut out plastic water jug
can suppress reflections. I used natural lighting, shooting only
on sunny mornings, and controlling the light by Venetian blinds.
Though initially I often failed to do so, I now advise that the
photograph of a piece always shows a part of the chain it is
suspended on, if
there is one. It is also informative to include any parts of a set
that may be present, such as earrings.
There are several online photo sharing programs available. This
presentation uses Picasa, a package of free photo management
software from Google. For information on Picasa see the "Links and
References" at the end of this page. Google also provides 1024 MB
of free disk space for one to share photographs using Picasa.
Links are provided below to 33 Picasa Web Albums containing a
total of about 1345 jpeg photos. These include a picture of every
pendant in the collection (some pendants appear in more than one
Web Album) and use about 25 % of my 1024 MB. Once within a Web
Album the viewer
may wish to use the following Picasa options:
Comments, corrections or questions are welcome. The great
majority of photographs are of a single piece. For each photo
Picasa allows for a caption whose first line
of text is displayed in the Web Albums without requiring action
by the viewer. Following is the kind of information I have
in these captions.
- View the complete caption
to a photo by placing the mouse pointer over the image.
- Enlarge a photo by left clicking the image. The enlarged
image will display the complete caption.
- Leave a comment to a photo you are viewing enlarged by
clicking "Post Comment" below the image and on the right.
- Return to viewing the entire album (while viewing an
enlargement) by clicking the highlighted album name.
- While viewing the album, activate a slide show of highly
enlarged photos by clicking "Slideshow" on the top left.
In recent years, Google, which provides the Picasa software,
discouraged the use of Picasa in order to promote their social
networking program Google+. The situation has now been stable for
a few years (2015). When you click on a link to a Picasa photo
album below, you will likely initially see it displayed in the
Google+ format, without any margins between photos. There should
be a yellow rectangle near the top-center of the
display which converts the album to a Picasa format with margins
Alternatively, you may stay in the Google+ format. Then clicking a
provides an enlarged version with its caption and other
information to the right.
Signature: The designer or
manufacturer's name or logo if it appears
on the piece. Also provided are product numbers, dates of
manufacture, country of origin, etc. - any inscription that
appears. If information comes from a removable tag, or from the
chain, this is either not used or the source is documented. Such
identification can be
added to a piece to mislead a buyer. If no signature is given in
the caption to a piece it means it is unsigned.
Number of Segments: This
is the number of flexibly attached segments through the
vertical mid-line of the piece. Dangling eyes or wings are
not counted as segments. Joining of segments may be by jump rings,
permanent hooks on the piece or an incorporated chain. If the
number of segments is clear from the photograph I generally do not
bother to state it in the caption. If a piece is unjointed it is
considered to have one segment.
Length: The vertical
length in inches (to tenths) from the highest place on the head
(ear tips or top center of the head) to the lowest
place on the tail. The bail is not measured, but tassels are. The
length of a jointed pendant may vary with the size of jump rings.
multiple or framed owls we measure the vertical length of the
piece. Note that the length of some pins is not well defined since
its design may allow multiple interpretations of what is a proper
vertical direction. However vertical direction is well defined for
- it is just the direction it hangs when suspended from its bail.
Conversion: 1 inch = 2.54 centimeters. In the Picasa captions we
for example, a length of 3.4 inches by L 3.4".
Weight: The weight
of the piece in avoirdupois ounces. This excludes the chain unless
otherwise specified. Conversion: 16 ounces = 1 pound, 1 ounce
= 28.349 grams. Inexpensive electronic scales are now
available with accuracy to 1/10 of a gram. This allows rapid and
accurate weighing to the nearest 1/100 of an ounce. Though weight
is not visually apparent, together with the length it provides a
useful way to refer to a piece in a Web Album. Also modern copies
are often lighter than the corresponding vintage piece and hence
weight may become useful in authentication. In the Picasa captions
we abbreviate, for example, a weight 0.62 ounces by W 0.62 oz.
Use: The type of
accessory: pendant, pin / pendant, key chain fob, locket, perfume
holder, wall hanging, etc. If unstated it means the piece is a
Colors & Materials: "Goldtone"
and "silvertone" mean any type of metal that is either gold or
silver colored throughout, or is coated with a gold or silver
colored material. Similar use is made of the terms "pewtertone,"
"coppertone," and "bronzetone." Though these colors may seem
apparent in photographs, it is common on eBay to see a piece that,
for example, looks goldtone in a photograph but is silvertone.
This may result from background colors or even your browser
settings. Thus we generally specify the predominant metal color
even it is seems apparent in the photo. About the only actual
metals identified here are sterling silver, copper, pewter and
bronze - usually by a mark on the piece. Auxiliary materials used
on a piece may also be identified, such as enamel, plastic,
faceted glass, ceramic and paint.
Rarity: The terms below
relate roughly to how often I have seen a piece offered for sale
at yard sales, flea markets and shops (since
1987), or on eBay (since around 1997). In 2008 new owl pendants
Asia began appearing in great numbers on eBay and the number of
vintage pieces offered declined. The rarity estimates below are
what was observed prior
to this change. Price is not considered: a common item may be
priced high, a rare item cheap. For many items, especially smaller
unsigned pendants, I have not kept a mental tally. For these I
either give no estimate of rarity, or lump them in the category
"AVAILABLE." These estimates do
not apply to handcrafted, imported or old (pre 1960) items. An
estimation of rarity must distinguish between the rarity of the type (mold), and the rarity of a variation of the type, such as the particular
colors in the piece illustrated. If it is not clear from the
context, we will explicitly state so if the rarity refers to a
variation. The word "type" here is similar to its the usage in
coin collecting, where in a "type collection" one collects an
example of a basic coin design, disregarding varying dates and
mint marks. Again, the following definitions apply to the eBay
market in 2007,
ABUNDANT: I have seen hundreds just in the
previous five years. There are always some of the type on eBay.
COMMON: I have seen dozens over the years.
There is often one for sale on eBay.
AVAILABLE: I may have seen at least ten over
the years. Or I may not have kept
a mental tally if the piece is small, unsigned or otherwise
indistinctive. Though probably the piece is not "common," if you
watch eBay for a few months one is likely to be offered for sale.
UNCOMMON: I have seen several over the years.
You may have to wait a year for one to come up on eBay.
RARE: I have seen
at most a few. And the piece is easily recognized, being large,
signed, memorable in some way, or a type I have been looking for.
It could be several years, if ever, for one to be offered on eBay.
the end of the caption I may add such information as: (1)
comparisons to other pieces, especially different versions of the
same mold, (2) different signatures found on the same
type, (3) selling prices (including shipping) of this or
similar pieces on eBay, with month and year of sale, (4) when the
piece was purchased, (5) assessment as to whether a
piece is vintage or not, and (6) any known appearance of the piece
a book or periodical. I wish now that I had recorded the
acquisition date of all the owls in the collection, especially
those bought in the last 10 years, since this would have been
useful in deciding if a piece is truly vintage. Recently
(10/2013) I have used
Newspapers.com to search "owl pendant" or "owl necklace" and find
advertisements of owl pendants. Several results are documented in
in the web albums. This could be used for other jewelry, but only
is in a category that has a conventional name to search for.
VINTAGE OR NOT?
Since around 2007 hundreds of new types of owl pendants have been
manufactured in Asia. At first, most of
these designs were imitative of popular vintage American designs.
But after a year or so, totally new creations appeared. These
recent imports may often be distinguished from vintage pieces in
the following ways: (1) they are almost never signed, (2) the new
pieces are lighter and often smaller than comparable vintage
(3) genuine enamel (glass) is rarely seen, however there is a
"fake enamel", made of thin plastic sheets, that is difficult to
distinguish from real enamel and impossible to distinguish in a
the back of the piece often bears small indented dots (molds for
with high nickel content may bear such marks), or streaks, (5)
chains supplied often have the "lobster claw" type fastener, (6)
color combinations are often seen on the imports. Using the eBay
search function on "owl pendant new" one gets over 15,000 matches
(11/2012), but most of these are duplicates of several hundred
unique designs. The vast
majority of such lots are from China or Korea and many offer
a per unit price less than a dollar and very low or free shipping
if you do not find a piece you are looking for, by searching new
can get a feel for identifying these imports.
But increasingly they are looking more and more like they are of
vintage manufacture. Often such new designs will be described by
Asian sellers as "vintage" in eBay auction titles, usually due to
unfamiliarity with the term rather than deliberate deceit. The
term "vintage style" may also be used, which always applies to a
recent import. Many are in the category "New, Vintage
Reproductions", within the Jewelry & Watches category. However
many domestic sellers on eBay have begun passing off recent Asian
imports as "vintage", often at much higher prices than the direct
seller's price. This may be due to innocent second hand purchases,
but often it is deception to get a better price for the piece.
This is likely the case when we see a seller offering many such
"vintage" pieces, or even multiple lots of the same design. You
may be able to find a piece listed by other sellers as new by
using the eBay search function. But this can be time consuming,
especially with thousands of different pieces coming in each year.
This problem is growing and threatens the market value of genuine
unsigned vintage costume jewelry as well as its historical study.
belated solution to this problem would be the legal requirement
imported jewelry be permanently marked with the country of origin.
It appears that country of origin identification was required in
the past, though often it was by a removable label. Perhaps recent
have nullified the option to require such labeling. The current
imitative imports is going to cost many elderly women hundreds of
of value in the costume jewelry they have accumulated over a
Politicians I have contacted about this do not seem at all
Web Albums -
Finding a pendant.
Ordering photographs within web albums may be done by one of the
(1) Signature. Ordering is alphabetic.
Within blocks of the same signature the next criteria apply.
If you wish to look for a specific owl pendant whose photo and
description may appear here, do
the following steps. The clickable titles are links to Picasa Web
Albums. Note (10-9-2013): after clicking the links below you will
go to a Google+ display of the pictures without captions; a
will read "Click here to go to Picassa Web Albums."
(2) Number of Segments-Length-Weight. These
terms are defined above. Ordering is from smaller to
larger for each criterion. If the number of segments are
equal, length determines order. If lengths are also equal,
weight is used.
(3) Expository requirements. I have ordered some
expository albums (e.g. Shared Parts) in a way that facilitates
(1) If the pendant has a mark for silver (e.g.
"sterling", "ster", "925") or is unmarked silver -
search for it by segments-length-weight in STERLING.
(2) If the pendant is signed (and is not sterling)
search for it by the name in one of
the following categories: A-C,
Alice Caviness, D-G, Eisenberg,
Crown Inc., H-K, JJ, L-P, Q-Z, Razza,
(3) If only the head is depicted, or
multiple heads (and it is not
sterling nor signed) - search for it by segments-length-weight
(4) If the owl is enclosed
within a frame or backdrop
(and it is not in any of the above three categories) - search for
it by segments-length-weight in FRAMED.
Pendants that do not fall in any of the above
four categories are ordered by segments-length-weight.
Search as follows.
(5) If the pendant is not jointed (one segment) search for it
by length-weight in the following ranges of length: 0.-1.9,
(6) If the pendant has exactly two segments search for it by
length-weight in: Two
(7) If the pendant has exactly three segments search for it by
length-weight in the following ranges of length: 0-2.9,
(8) If the pendant has four or more segments search for it by
segments-length-weight in Four

the following links
you will see images of hundreds of unsigned owl
pendants. These are organized automatically by file name, and
chosen the file names so the images will be ordered by:
(1) the number of vertical segments in the
pendant, beginning with unjointed pendants (one segment)
(2) for pendants with the same number of
segments, by increasing length (to the nearest one tenth of an
(3) for pendants with the same number of segments and
the same length, by increasing weight (to the nearest one
hundredth of an ounce).
With these conventions the viewer can see if a pendant in hand
is in these web albums. Pieces that are made of sterling
silver, are signed, that depict heads only, that are framed,
are listed in their own albums. Some signed
pendants are also present in the unsigned category if they
appear unsigned, or if the signature is difficult to read.

By informal observation over the years, and some counting on
eBay, I have selected some types that I think are the most
abundant of all the signed owl pendants. They are listed in order
- the most numerous appearing first. As for all these lists of
common or rare pendants, estimates are approximate, especially
toward the end of the list.

VERY COMMON - UNSIGNED (26)
We have selected some owl pendants that are usually (or
always) unsigned and that we estimate to be the most
frequently offered for sale. We have also taken the liberty to
give names to some of the most abundant of these.

owl pendants above as the most common involves some
guesswork. Selecting which are the most rare is mostly
guesswork. In this Web Album we present photos of some
signed pendants from the collection, each of which I
recall having seen only one or two over the years. There
are many such pendants, so we have selected the ones that
I have specifically been looking for, at least for a few
years. These lists exclude imports, hand crafted and old
pieces. You rarely see two of them that are alike.

RARE - UNSIGNED (28)
I have seen at most only a
few of the unsigned owl pendants in this web album.
Further, they are the type that I would have likely
remembered if I had seen more.

"Turtle Back" pendant - of which I have seen but three in over
15 years of collecting. See the start of the "Shared Parts"

Variations of a design type
are presented here in paired photographs. Variations
illustrated and described include color, material,
signature and construction. Some color variations of
common types are themselves very rare.

This is a fairly common type of pendant, but I have
only seen two with this color scheme.
OVAL EYES DESIGN (20)
There can be
reasonable disagreement about which is the second or third most
common unsigned owl pendant. But there is no doubt which is the
most abundant. I call this "Oval Eyes," and it is the King of Owl
Pendants. Very few other owl pendants have full oval eyes. Note it
has three segments, a barred beak, up-flared feathers on the head
and no perch. On a typical day (3/17/2007) I counted about 30 Oval
Eyes pendants for bid on eBay or in eBay stores. There were only 8
of the next most
frequent type (Spaghetti Wings). Oval Eyes may be the most popular
figural jewelry design ever produced. Yet the designer is unknown.
I have never seen a vintage example that is signed on the back,
and I have seen or read descriptions of hundreds. Some with
plastic feathers attached to the breast also have a metal tag
reading "Sumthing Special." This does not seem to be a proprietary
claim to the Oval Eyes design since it only appears on some
feathered versions. Sometimes the pendant may come in its original
box with a company name, marketed as the "Wise Old Owl" pendant.
But these company names vary and never appear on the pendant
itself. If you have any knowledge of who designed this pendant
please email me.

"Oval Eyes" pendant.
In the web album we present both vintage and recent designs that
are derived from the Oval Eyes design. Almost all of the new
designs are not claimed to be vintage by the sellers, although
such odd terms as "new vintage" may be seen. These recent copies
are often smaller and lighter weight than the
The same, or nearly the
same, parts (head, belly, tail) often appear on more than
one type of pendant. We begin this album with three "chimera"
- combinations of parts from totally different vertebrates.
Most of the pictures are of certain stylized owl heads, such
as the "brainy head" shown here, that many owl pendants share.
One sees these heads over and over, and I have taken the
liberty to name them.
Some shared bellies, talons and tails are also illustrated.
AUCTION PHOTOGRAPHS (159)
many of the most interesting owl pendants you will see here
this web album. It contains eBay auction photographs of many
owl pendants that I did not purchase because the price was too
high or because I was away. No copyright protection was
claimed for any of these photographs, but if they are your
work and you wish me to remove them I will. Or I will just
give you a credit if you prefer. I have not used any of these
photographs for commercial purposes. This also applies to
other auction photos in the Web Albums linked to above.
