Early in his costume jewellery career, he worked for H. The company was in business from approximately the late 1940s until about 1975. Selenger married quite late in life at the age of 52 and never had any children.
He died at the age of 79 on Dec. Geller also said that Selenger designed a line for Hattie Carnegie. Selro is best known for amazing figural, often depicting Asian and African faces, these unique pieces were designed by Selenger himself. There are basically three different figural faces that are found in Selro/Selini jewellery: An Asian woman face (Often called Thai Princess), an old Asian man face and an African face.These faces can be found in numerous colors and textures i. Pearlized, plus are often over painted and embellished with elaborate headdresses that are part of the metal settings. Much of Selro jewellery is unsigned and may have been originally hang-tagged. There are some clues, however, to identifying unmarked Selro/Selini jewelry.
First, the heavy, herringbone chain that Selinger used on his lariat necklaces is distinctive and unique. A finer herringbone chain can often been seen on the smaller.Second, many pieces have a unique bracing structure on the back of the jewellery that can lead to its identification. Selinger's settings are extremely complex and detailed, Selinger liked to use very decorative prongs in his settings with large, glass cabochon stones or heavily carved lucite stones and dangles. Many wonder if there was a connection between the two companies. Faytell said that Selenger had hundreds of pieces of HAR in his personal collection. Geller, however, says there was no connection between Har and Selro. Geller also manufactured jewellery for HAR. Selro merchandise was distributed through a New York wholesaler called Fran & Co. Which placed jewellery from such manufacturers as, Art, JJ and American Chanel, in department stores such as Marshall Field's, Wieboldt's, and Goldblatt's. The original Fran and Co. Price tags denoted the wholesale price to the individual department stores.
For a time, Selro and Selini were produced simultaneously. Occasionally, jewellery can even be found featuring both the Selro and Selini marks.
