Help!

I have a necklace, very heavy, plated silver, and it's signed Denmark, B&D, Jacob Hull.

Can anyone give me information on either the company B&D, or the designer, Jacob Hull?

I've tried Google, but can't find anything except a couple of JH's items.

Thanks!

Jacob Hull appears to be a current artist making handmade pieces very collectable--and expensive.

Jacob Hull Modernist Amethyst Cuff Bracelet
This bracelet is silver plated and is by Jacob Hull. Jacob Hull designs are very collectible and all feature a handmade studio quality to them. This cuff has hammered base and rouch set amethyst. It is fully marked and including the company insignia whom he worked for, B&D. It is large and impressive and is currently at 7.25 interior circumference.

It seems a shame, given the obvious care and effort put into the pieces, that they are not sterling.

Given the relatively low price of raw silver these days, I wonder if there might be some other reason why someone would make non-massive items such as jewelry out of something else and then plate it to make it look like silver.

Thank you all for your responses. For some reason I have the idea that he is not a current artist, but from the 60s-70s.

You are probably right. In one of my virtual cigar boxes of old, undigested electronic snippets I found one that points to a danish firm 'B&D' active from '69 to the mid-80s. Alas, that's all I have and I didn't note the source.

The net yields little beyond the two pieces found by you and Mr. T-Bird which doesn't presage a coming collecting rage.

But I did find some reference to a special alloy used for jewelry by one Jacob Hull. How sure are you that your piece is silverplated rather than a "burnished metal" as described in the second item above?

I dipped the necklace and it came up bright and shiney. I always thought it was solid sterling because of the weight, but the other day I noticed a tiny chip off the plating. It looks like brass? underneath.
