The following information pertaining to the Carl-Art Jewelry Company was found on a variety of websites...
*****The Carl-Art Company was created in 1936 by partners Carl Schraysshuen and Arthur Loercher. Carl emigrated from Germany to America in the late twenties or early thirties to work at the Speidel Company in Providence Rhode Island. Arthur was an American businessman and friend. Disillusioned with Spiedel, Carl and Arthur decided to go into the jewelry business for themselves. Carl soon churned out over 30 patents for jewelry in the 1940s.  Carl-Art jewelry company only produced higher end gold, silver or gold-filled pieces and they are marked as such.  Most of the jewelry manufactured was dainty, but well made and of innovative design. Rhinestones were used in some of the designs. There is a great article on Carl- Art in the publication Vintage Fashion and Costume Jewelry, Vol.15, NO3, 2005. This article was written by Cheri Van Hoover who is a member of the Jewel Collect forum. Signature Designs: Sterling, gold over sterling retro looks, dainty.*****
