Fantastic Signed Pauline Rader Egyptian Revival Runway Couture Gold Tone Necklace
Pauline Rader was the daughter of a jeweller and began designing her own jewellery around 1962. Her designs were influenced by her study of and love for the jewellery of antiquity being highly imaginative and usually massive in size, that often showed mystical Greek or Italian influences. She used heavy antique gold tone, gold wash or silver tone metal for the base with pave set or bezel set, faceted simulated coloured stones, simulated pearls, glass coloured beads and rhinestones. Some of her designs included polished gold and white enameled finish. Pauline Rader produced necklaces, bracelets, brooches, pendants, earrings and rings with the look of chunky MOD designs including some ancient coin replica pieces of jewellery, figurals and flowers. Pauline Rader produced designs in very small quantities for a SELECT clientele and ELITE boutiques, therefore, her jewellery is difficult to find and is very collectible. She ceased operations in the 1980’s.
