Arthur Pepper was in business from the late 1940's making jewelry signed Mode Art, and later, ART(c).
Offering high quality jewelry with an emphasis on medieval, renaissance styles,
The heyday of this company came during the 1960's when they produced dozens of interpretations of ethnic Asian figural fashion jewelry, Egyptian revival large metal pectorals, Maltese crosses, and an entire line of jewelry with delightful small enamelled flowers. Most collectible besides the Christmas tree pins are the Maltese crosses and the enamelled daisy jewels.
The hardest to find pieces are decadent rhinestone sets that are very similar to Florenza jewelry.
This fashion jewelry is now all vintage.
