HISTORY OF CORO JEWELRY COMPANY

Coro jewelry was founded in New York by Emanuel Cohn & Carl Rosenberger in 1901/1902 & incorporated in 1913.  A factory was established in Providence, RI in 1911.   With offices or plants in New York & Providence; at times they had a presence in Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Miami, Toronto, England and Mexico.  Great Britain mechanical patents have been found in the name of Corocraft from 1961 until 1969, which documents actual production in England.

Cohn died in 1910, but the name remained Cohn & Rosenberger.  The corporate name "Coro" was adopted in 1943.  Rosenberger died in 1957, & his son Gerald, who succeeded him, died in 1967.

In 1969 the family sold 51% of the Coro stock to Richton, Intl. Corp., who bought the remaining stock in 1970.  Richton also owned the Oscar de la Renta brand.  By 1979 all the Coro companies, except the Canadian company, were bankrupt. It was sold to a South American company & also went bankrupt.

CONDITION: It is in very good condition except for minimal wear which is acceptable and normal for a brooch of this vintage.

It is normal for such vintage jewelry to show some minor surface wear to the metal backing. In the trade such condition is known as "patina." After all, this is not "new" jewelry and it has been worn on many occasions over the years. A certain amount of wear is acceptable and should be expected.
