News-Antique.com - Dec 30,2010 - December 30, 2010, Knightdale, NC - Everyone that is familiar with the antique jewellry made by Elzac recognizes the popular whimsical women’s faces called Victims of Fashion (If this antique custom jewelry is new to you, you can view a couple of pieces on our website at www.BanglesandBeadsOnline.com), but what about the older pieces?
When production first began, the earliest Elzac pins were made either of carved wood, or wood with Lucite, materials left over from Handler's home run business where he made furniture and household products. First flowers were made, then animals and finally faces. The wood was either walnut or ebony and was heavily carved. Pieces that are not carved, or poorly done so are non-Elzac. These are not to be overlooked, as they go for as much as $300 to $100. Note that they used no Bakelite in their creations. The firm did not even last a decade due to new business partners that didn't see the need to diversify. So whether you collect the fun Lucite and ceramic pins, or want to branch out into the earlier pieces, you’ll end up with a valuable collection to wear and enjoy.
