~  Renoir  ~  Matisse  ~  Sauteur  ~

Founded in 1946 by Jerry Fels, Renoir of California produced copper jewelry until about 1964.  The Matisse mark was used only on the luscious enameled pieces produced starting in the early 1950s.  The Sauteur line by Renoir was originally sterling pieces produced from the mid-1950s until 1960.  To accommodate changing styles and the difficulty of producing the same copper designs in sterling, the line was redesigned with the brushed gold finish.  These “Golden Glow” pieces were only made from 1961-1963.
