Eisenberg Reproductions

Bobye Syverson, our beloved Eisenberg costume jewelry expert has been collecting reproductions of some notable Eisenberg and other highly valued pieces of jewelry, such as Staret, Trifari, Boucher and Corocraft.   She has graciously shared these reproductions with us for reference.   Enjoy the eye candy!  Even the reproductions are beautiful.   Please  make note of Bobye's important expert observations on how they differ from the authentic pieces that are also in her collection.  If you have any questions about these reproductions,  don't hesitate to contact Bobye, BOBYE@prodigy.net.  Bobye says, "You will notice that most of the repros are quite large, and they are heavily constructed.  Lots of fun to wear.  Have fun!"  Don't forget to click on the photos to get the larger view! :)

Here are a pair for comparison. The one with the blue stones is the repro and it was NOT made by the same company as the other ones. Notice it is slightly smaller than the genuine old one, which is sterling. Both are marked "Eisenberg Original".

 
This is one of the prettiest repros. Signed with a scroll E. The old one is a pin/clip and is slightly smaller. It is a pin/clip in sterling with a gold wash.
 
This one has appeared several times on eBay with no mention that it is not old.
Mark is Eisenberg Original

This one has appeared on eBay, identified as vintage. It is also shown in a book, and the author must not have known it was a repro. Marked Eisenberg Original.
 
An especially good looking fruit salad basket with "carved" leaves. The mark is Staret.
 
A lovely butterfly with cab stones and lots of small crystals. The mark is Boucher.

I have seen this one on eBay several times, not listed as a reproduction. I remember seeing a picture of the original version of this one in a book. It was all colorless stones. Mark "Eisenberg Original"

coro lyre bird vintage costume reproduction

The repro people seldom make pieces with just crystal stones.  This one is 2¼" and marked with a scroll E.

 

We have seen a few of the genuinely old ones like this recently.  This one combines too many different colors of stones.  Also note that the stone in the base is NOT faceted.  The mark is Eisenberg Original and it id 3½" tall. 
The lovely Lyre Bird pin.  It is 4¼" tall and marked Trifari

One of the first repros that I ever bought. I have the old one in this design and it is noticeably smaller, mark is Eisenberg Original. Original is sterling with a gold wash.
 
This one is signed Coro Craft. The top one is the repro, however the colors are actually identical. For some reason the enamel on the repro registered very vividly.
 
This is a design used by Eisenberg, but I have never seen it with these stones.
Mark: Eisenberg Original

Eisenberg gold ruby AB rhinestone brooch

This bow is heavier than most.  It is 4½" tall and marked Eisenberg Original.  The only rhinestones on it are very dark blue opaque baguettes.  It has designs in the metal that give the effect of marcasite, they are not set in but are part of the piece itself.  . Unusual pin with green and blue baguettes.   Almost 4" long. Mark is Eisenberg Original.
Gold color with ruby ABs   2" across and 2½" top to bottom.  The mark would indicate it was part of Eisenberg's Classic Series done in 1994.  However, I have all of them and this design was not among them.  Marked Eisenberg Ice  94
