From the 15 October, 1959 Vogue- a black brocade dress and jacket, with a hat by Emme and a large brooch by Eisenberg. This outfit would have been worn for a cocktail party or perhaps the theatre. The jacket has large cuffs and the dress appears to have a bow at the waist to add even more feminity to the the ensemble.

Eisenberg & Sons jewelry was well known during the period of the 1930's to 70's. Eisenberg started as a dress company that came up with the interesting idea of adding costume jewelry to their dresses to add to their appeal. The jewelry was so well made and desireable that women did not want to buy the dresses, and in some cases the jewelry was stolen. A decision was made to move into jewelry manufacturing.
