The necklace is of a substantial weight, sits high on the neck - just above the clavicle, and has a lobster clasp. Marked "Accessocraft N.Y.C." on tag by clasp. Accessocraft was founded by Edgar Rodelheimer and Theodore Steinman in the early 1930s. The brand operated out of New York, producing high end costume jewelry in cutting edge designs. In the 1940s Accessocraft partnered with the "British War Relief Society" and "The Committee to Defend America by Aiding the Allies", creating "War Relief" / "Society Pins" whose proceeds went towards the war effort. In the mid 20th century, Accessocraft also created jewelry, accessories, and vanity items in acrylic, under the name “Feathagold”. Accessocraft exploded in popularity in the post-war era, cocktail party era - they create pieces that were bolder and brighter than many other costume jewelry manufacturers, using fine materials such as enamel, Czech glass, filigree, and fine imitation pearls. Because of their reputation for excellence, designers, including Anne Klein, began worked with Accessocraft. Design motifs include: Gothic Revival, Hellenistic, Renaissance - Inspired, Byzantine Revival, Geometric, and Mid Century. Due to their higher prices, Accessocraft pieces were more expensive to produce than their contemporaries, leading to fewer pieces in existence today.
