Another fun historic find on this company – an original patent by Henry Fishel of Fishel Nessler in 1910 (gotta love Google!)
Fishel and Nessler is now a cult vintage classic brand and sought after as collectible jewelry and fun costume wear. Their last patent was in 1922 and their pieces reflect the time as art nouveau, classic. Based out of New York City this brand has tons of “provenance.”
