"DRGM 1138525" & "PATENTED"
German utility patent # 1138525 issued to Schreiber & Hiller in 1930
Vintage Bakelite jewelry as beautiful as this German flexible bracelet from the 1930s is hard to find. It has vertical links of diamanté alternating with black Bakelite. The stones in this piece are relatively large – only four to each flat-top link. This Art Deco bracelet closes with a concealed clasp. Because one of the markings is “Patented” (an English word stamped by a German maker), I think this bracelet was intended for export.

Schreiber & Hiller Jewelry, Vintage Necklaces, 1930s JewelryThis plaque necklace made in Germany in the 1930s has tapered, curved links of diamanté on either side of a black Bakelite disk. It is topped with a large, claw-set diamanté surrounded by smaller stones. When laid out on a table, the necklace forms a wide v-shape. A scroll chain with a spring-ring clasp completes this beautiful piece from my personal collection. Although some stones have aged, this necklace still has lots of sparkle.

Schreiber & Hiller Jewelry, Vintage Earrings, 1930s JewelryAt the top of these 1930s earrings is a link with engraved sides that holds seven diamanté. At the bottom is another diamanté -set link flanked by black Bakelite on three sides. In the middle is a single stone. Each earring has a small chip of Bakelite at the bottom, but that minor flaw in no way detracts from their beauty. The original ear clips were converted to sterling silver ear wires with lever backs for pierced ears by my expert jeweler.

Schreiber & Hiller Jewelry, Vintage Necklaces, 1930s JewelryA beautiful example of Machine Age design that you will love. This vintage black Bakelite necklace features six curved links set with diamanté that alternate with Bakelite links with roof-shaped (pointed) tops. Because the jeweled links are curved, the centerpiece follows the curve of your neck instead of laying out in a straight line. A scroll chain with a spring-ring clasp completes this elegant and easy-to-wear necklace that I always enjoyed.
