Once considered “junk jewelry,” vintage Lisner pieces have only recently become collectible. In the 1990s, collectors realized that the clever shapes and bright colors of the company’s cheaply made plastic leaves and baubles possessed a unique (and today, lucrative) beauty.
For nearly 30 years after its 1904 founding, Lisner imported and sold Elsa Schiaparelli’s Parisian jewelry in the United States. In the 1930s, the company achieved a higher profile by finally selling its own designs that employed DuPont’s new colored acrylic plastic called Lucite, clear and colored rhinestones (particularly aurora borealis), lava stones, and chromed, silver-plated, and black japanned metal.
Currently, one of the most coveted vintage Lisner lines is the molded plastic oak-leaf jewelry, which was only produced for five years in the 1960s. Individual pieces such as brooches or necklaces without matching bracelets or earrings are more affordable.
