Although it’s unsigned, this 1930s Mauerwerk (brickwork) necklace has been well documented as a piece by Jakob Bengel. It features red and black enamel on chrome, with an attractive link chain and a spring-ring clasp. This Machine Age necklace is extremely flexible and can be worn on either side. This piece is from my personal collection. Scroll down to see a red-and-black-enamel bracelet and a pair of earrings by the same maker, as well as the same style necklace with green- and-black enamel.

    Red & Black Galalith 1930s Jakob Bengel Earrings

    , ,
    These Jakob Bengel earrings feature raised black Galalith triangles with red Galalith slots. The chrome settings envelope the stones. A stack of chrome disks completes the design. I purchased these earrings from a Bengel expert in the UK. They came with their unmarked ear wires with lever backs for pierced ears, so I am unaware of the metal content. If you require sterling silver, a competent jeweler could switch the ear wires. Scroll down to see Jakob Bengel pieces that work beautifully with these earrings.
