1940s to 50s sterling leaf earrings with screwbacks by Paul Lobel.  Hallmarked Lobel Sterling.

Romanian born Paul Lobel (1899-1983) was one of the most well-known mid-20th century modernist jewelers. A successful painter, sculptor and designer of glass, furniture and sterling hollowware, during World War II Lobel was one of the first to open a studio/shop in Greenwich Village where he created jewelry and small sculptures.  He closed his studio in the late 1950s to return to industrial design.

Lobel's achievements include a one-man show in Paris in 1925, awards for his Benduro-bent glass tableware at the Paris Decorative Arts Exhibition of 1937, and exhibitions at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, American Museum of Art, and MoMA.  His work is documented in "Messengers of Modernism: American Studio Jewelry 1940-1960", and in "Modernist Jewelry 1930-1960".
