Note: The Van Dell Corporation was founded in 1938 in Providence Rhode Island, which is still a jewelry hub to this day. The company manufactured well made sterling silver, gold filled and gold plated jewelry rather than more commonly made costume jewelry in base metal. This is one reason for the scarcity of the designs, since fine metal jewelry is not made in quantities that costume jewelry was made. The jewelry was of high quality and some pieces of jewelry sold for $65 or more in the 1960s. This would have been quite expensive for the time. This piece is a wonderful example of the fine quality jewelry made during the Art Deco / Retro period.
