    ANTHONY Aquilino Originals

    A generous collector told me that, "He
    emigrated to New York initially from Naples, Italy around 1920 and then
    moved to Providence around 1940. I don?t believe he began
    designing until around 1945/1946 but he probably worked for other
    jewelers at the time. Unfortunately, he died in 1948 while a relatively
    young man, so he personally only had a few pieces under his name. He
    made the ?cat in front of a large Lucite fishbowl trying to fish out the
    goldfish? for one. I have two of those, one with red stones and one
    with blue stones. (Although there are a lot of fakes out there.) They
    both have a large oval plaque on the back with a signature.
    "
    After his death in 1948, his daughter Antoinette and his son Anthony
    continued making jewelry under the ?Anthony Creations? name or ?Jewels
    by Antoinette? or something like that, but their designs were nothing
    like the original pieces. There are several patents out there as well."

    ARTHUR & BOND, Yokohama, Japan

    Arthur & Bond were English retailers who had a location in Yokohama, and
    may have also manufactured some of their pieces. They sold high-end
    pieces, mostly to
    expatriates and travelers.

    FRED A BLOCK
    Chicago, Illinois
    1940-1949
    Block was a Chicago ready-to-wear maker. It is thought that his line of
    jewelry was made, at least in part, by the Sandor Goldberg Company of
    New York, hence you will see some of the same pieces marked "Sandor" as
    well. This information, can be seen in Brunalti’s "Tribute to American
    Costume Jewelry" on page 141-2.

    BLYTHE & BLYTHE

    B. BLUMENTHAL
    New York
    This maker did start out making buttons in the Victorian era, but when
    they made their jewelry isn’t information that I have found yet. From
    looking at their work, I would think it was in the first third of the
    20th century.

    mark is a script "B" in a horseshoe

    may have also made jewelry under the name
    "Camille Bigney Quality"

    BUTTERWORTH Jeweller
    late 1890s to present

    "I was thrilled to see the coral earrings in their original box. "G" was
    George Butterworth, my great uncle. He was apprenticed in his home town
    of Rochdale as a gold and silver worker when he left school, setting up
    in Shipley, Yorkshire where he was later joined by his brother (my
    grandfather) in 1900. They then traded as Butterworth Brothers (but
    might have used up existing boxes of course). I have attached an image
    of G Butterworth. The photo was taken in 1900 when he was 27."

    The box lid says, "G. Butterworth, watchmaker & Jeweller, Kirkgate,
    Shipley (England)", circa early 1900’s.

    "In 1903 they moved back to Rochdale and set up here, where the
    family has traded ever since. George died in 1930. His brother
    survived him by 27 years.
    I knew very little about the early days in Shipley except that a
    guard dog named Piper was kept and he caught a burglar! Now I know
    where the shop was and I have been able to make further enquiries
    and gain more detailed knowledge about their lives at that time."
    "I have never seen a box for G Butterworth before and did not know that
    he had traded alone for a while.
    With kind regards
    Louise Butterworth
    Butterworth Brothers "

    CC
    unidentified maker, sometimes confused with Carence Crafters.

    According to
    the Goldsmiths? Hall, Foster Lane, London,

    the mark of Catherine Anne Cockerell, first
    registered in 1929 takes the form of the letters C.A.C. within an oval.
    An English jewelry maker who worked
    from the 1930’s to 1990, she was the daughter of Douglas Cockerell, the
    English bookbinder of some renown. Her real name was Catherine, but
    liked to call herself ‘Casty’. Her married name was Cobb. There was an
    obituary of her in

    The Independent
    (British daily newspaper) in 1995. (Her family
    was kind enough to bring her to my attention).
