The Napier company made banks for decades until it stopped production 1976. However, the company continued the sale of its giftware line reserved stock, including banks, until 1980. This is a fun bank we have never seen other than this ad dated “1942.” What is your favorite Napier bank? Show & Tell! From The Napier Book https://ift.tt/3cnbS9h

In the first half of the 20th century, The Napier Co. used product placement to obtain exposure with little to no marketing expense. Napier lent jewelry or giftware product for editorials or other companies’ advertising. Here we see Napier earrings featured in a 1952 advertisement for a Lederman designed cashmere coat made with fabric loomed by Einiger. T & C November 1952.

For many collectors, Napier’s gift ware line is as important as the jewelry.
This 1947 Vogue spread features three Napier trinket boxes. These were produced for years, and today, we mostly see them in silver tone. For those who are Chanel jewelry fans, and treasure the classic Chanel bezel-set 60-inch faceted crystal necklace, take note of the manufacturer of these. Most of us are familiar with the 1980s production. #napier #napierhistory #napiergiftware #napiertrinketbox #vogue #1940s #chanelnecklace #chanelhistory #regina #thenapierbook #napierhistory.from The Napier Book https://ift.tt/3cnbS9h
