The history of the American jewelry brand Mosell began in 1940, when the French emigrant Frederick Mosell came to New York. Founding Frederick Mosell Jewelry Co.
NY, he began producing costume jewelry in exquisite designs. Handcrafted, especially interesting are his plot brooches.
These brooches, unlike all the others, in addition to aesthetic pleasure, carry some other emotional message. They create a special mood and become more interesting as a decoration. Basically, these story brooches date from the 1940s - 1950s. In the 1960s, there are already much less of them, due to the influence of time and fashion.
Catwalk and the so-called Egyptian revival style replaced plot decorations. Handmade in limited numbers, large gold-plated necklaces, brooches and earrings with large crystals and cabochons were suitable for wearing with an evening dress.
