    I thought this was a neat find. I obtained two Lisner 3 strand necklaces, and 1 matching 3 strand bracelet. One of the necklaces and the bracelet still have the original Lisner tags attached and a Penny's tag as well
    "$1.00 plus tax"

      I'll say! Where'd you get them?

      Where does it say Lisner?

      I believe nutsabotas6 is correct.

      LISNER: Early 1900s - Late 1985

      The D. Lisner & Company was founded in New York City in the early 1900s. The Lisner Company manufactured a broad range of jewelry from high quality, in the 1950s, using more expensive and superior aurora borealis stones and rhinestone, to medium priced and the lower priced range similar to Coro jewelry. Their Richelieu line of jewelry contained more expensive materials such as aurora borealis and Lucite cabochons along with Austrian rhinestones. And these pieces today, are some of the best Lisner produced and most popular with collectors. Mark: "LISNER" in block was the mark first used in 1935, "Lisner" in script first used in 1938, and "Lisner in script letters with a long L in a circle" used in and after 1959. The marks alone does not date jewelry pieces of Lisner’s 55 plus years of production due to the fact that the molds, findings and stamping dies were kept and used again at later dates. The Lisner jewelry designs contained colored rhinestones including aurora borealis, molded plastic and Lucite stones, some showing Art Deco influence. In 1978, the company changed its name to Lisner-Richelieu Corporation. The Lisner Company ceased operations in late 1985.

      I got these from a 92 year woman who was an avid costume and fine jewelry collector, as well as just about every other accessory you can imagine. So many of her things were never, or rarely used. I wonder if maybe Penny's attached the Lisner tags? The necklaces are marked "Western Germany" on the clasp/hook.
    4. Efesgirl Efesgirl, 5 years ago
      Here's an example of Lisner jewelry made in Western Germany with the original Lisner tag. Also, the Lisner jewelry I saw from that period - 1950ish - have fish hook clasps rather than bible clasps. Don't know how significant that is, however.
    5. leese, 5 years ago
      The 2 necklaces do have the the fish hook clasps just like the one pictured on the link you shared, and the Lisner label looks similar. I guess whatever the case, true Lisner or a fake they are interesting pieces!
