MARCUS & Co. Dresden jeweler Hermann Marcus left Germany for New York in the 1850s. He worked for Tiffany & Co., followed by Ball, Black and Company before partnering with Theodore B. Star in the firm, Star and Marcus. Following a brief return to Tiffany´s, he entered into partnership with his son William´s business in 1884. The name officially became Marcus & Company in 1892. The firm rose to prominence during the 1920s and 1930s. They manufactured expensive diamond jewels as well as artistic jewelry featuring plique-a-jour enamel in the Art Nouveau style. Famous for their spectacular flower brooches: pansies, morning glories, orchids, et al, the company flourished during the Art Nouveau era.
