One of the most famous makers of mid-century copper jewelry was Renoir. Founded in 1946, as Renoir of Hollywood in honor of its California location, the company made its mark with high-quality workmanship and imaginative designs. Through the years, the company’s marks went through several additional iterations including Renoir of California, 1948; Hand Made Renoir of California 1952-1954, and eventually, just Renoir.
In 1952 the company introduced a new line of colorful enameled copper jewelry called Matisse using many of the same designs. In addition to Matisse, the company introduced a line of sterling silver named Sauteur. As copper jewelry fell out of favor, the company finally closed in 1964.
