In 1971 he partnered with David Stein to establish Frank Olive's World. He was one of the foremost U.S. milliners from the 1950s through 1990s. His customers included Carol Burnett, Diana Ross and Peggy Lee. He died in New York in 1995 at age 66.

Shenley-Gordon was a high fashion ladies shop in Louisville founded in 1919 as Shenley's. In 1932 the store purchased the entire inventory of another local milliner, Gordon's and changed their name to Shenley-Gordon.  The store was purchased in 1959 by then manager Jacob Gallin.  His wife Ruth advertised hats under her name and her photo was on hatboxes and in store ads.  From our research it appears the store closed in the late 60s.

This 1970s Egyptian-style necklace is an absolute stunner.  14 bright gold snake chains with a large center rectangle of gold.  Inset is a large oval  of faux amber. Center piece is thick adding some very interesting dimension to this chocker.  Extender chain with hook close.

Monet was founded in 1927 as Monocraft by brothers Michael and Joseph Chernow to capitalize on the popularity of monogramming. They developed a process for metal monogramming first for autos and later for handbags. Late in the 30s they began to produce jewelry monograms such as watch fobs. The true Monet that we know today came from their hiring of Edmond Mario Granville. Coming Monocraft with a background in fine jewelry from Cartier, Granville remained the company’s sole designer until the late 1950s and was executive designer until his death in 1969. His leadership would span the company’s humble beginnings as Monocraft to its eventual acclaim as Monet. The company passed through several owners and was purchased by Liz Claiborne in 2000. Monet Group, which includes Trifari and Marvella like so many other grand names in CJ was moved out of the country and produces much lesser quality.
