The RENOIR line of jewelry was founded in Los Angeles CA in 1946 by Jerry Fels.The company was famous for its jewelry made from copper metal but also used sterling silver metal.Copper was a popular choise metal for metalworkers active in the Arts & Crafts designs in the 1930-1950's period.The company made jewelry in contemporary abstract designs that leaned towards modern art.The jewelry produced was hand-hammered look.
The necklace is a nice example of Renoir from late 1940's.It is in polished copper,circa 40cm long and 1,5 cm wide.All textured,16 elements.The signature is at the back of the first element.This nice and decorative unusual necklace was worn,so there are small signs of use.The clasp has more traces ,works correctly.Not polished,I leave it at the buyer's taste.
