Info on CZECH Jewelry Neiger Brothers Attributes

Hi Everyone,
I was doing some research on a few Czech pieces I have and found this info.
As most of the vintage Czech jewelry is not marked I was thrilled to find this info about Neiger Brothers Czech jewelry.
Fascinating history, and very sad as well, both brothers dies in Auschwitz.
There are certain characteristic that point to their work.
For instance, this bracelet I have is part of the Dot and Leaf Line.
Just confirmed on the site.
Every little bit of knowledge helps.:-)

Very interesting Cali!

 

I read about Neiger Bros for the first time in "Baubles, buttons and beads ; the heritage of Bohemia" by Sibylle Jargstorf. Seeing  examples of their work in that book piqued my curiosity ... since then I've been on  the look out  for more info about them and the jewelry they produced, so thanks for posting this site. Very useful. Esp. because Neiger pieces are getting more and more collectible.

 

A while back I bought a fantastic red glass necklace with scarab beads .... unfortunately incomplete. I suspect they might be Neiger Bros beads, they are so similar to the ones I've seen attributed to them. .

 

Isn't it great to find a piece and to trace its origins like this?? I think this is one of the reasons we  are drawn to old jewelry.

So true Arlene, every piece tells a story.

This particular bracelet has a few issues, one of the Dot and Leaf findings is missing and one glass cab has a small chip on the side but to be able to trace it's roots is fascinating !

Can somebody do me a favor and click on that link in my OP and let me know if they can see the page on Neiger Bros ?

I can't seem to access it anymore, I want to know if it's just me or if everyone can't see it.

TIA.:-)

The link took me to my FB log in and then to my home page.  I didn't see anything on Neiger Bros.  Sorry I missed it the first time around.  :womansad:

Hi,

       The ONLY reliable information about the Neiger brothers that we have at this time can be found in books written by Sibylle Jargstorf, a noted authority on glass and the history of the Bohemian area.

Regards,

Pat

That's great Pat for people who have access to the Book. Those of us without the means can only learn by experiencing attributed collections of those willing to share. Not that there is any chance I will find a treasure to recognize from this Maker in my part of the world.

Hi,

        What I was trying to say is the info online may or may not be correct and I would urge caution when referring to anything found there.  I certainly would not spend much money without more information. Some of  the the jewelry shown online for sale is not old and not worth what some are asking. It is not good when you see 6 necklaces that look the same except for color---not very likely to be 80 or so years old----I am just advising buyers to be VERY careful.

 

Regards,

Pat

I understand that the Internet is fraught with deliberate and unintentional misinformation. Very sad if this was one of those instances, could be even sadder if it was not :smileysad:

Pat, I think it is great that people are reminded that whatever information you find on the internet should NEVER be taken at face value ... it should be checked and double checked with other references.  I even try to double check information I find in books.

 

When it comes to vintage jewelryu the information that is available is ever changing, just like the names to so many of the techniques used to make them.  Because new information is found and new "trend words" are recognized rather than the older non trendy techniques.

 

Thanks for the reminder.
