Walter Lampl Company (1921-1959) was a wholesale jewelry company which created bold and highly individualistic jewelry in a variety of materials. Lampl’s jewelry was designed by women employees who produced drawings which were then approved by Walter. They were a major manufacturer of charms. In 1939 the company produced a heart charm for the World's Fair held in New York City. These sterling silver charms went on to become treasured by collectors. Hence, nine times out of ten, a vintage Lampl bracelet tends to be a charm bracelet. It is rare to find a true Art Nouveau piece from the Lampl collection. The warmth, creativity, and humor of Walter’s character were reflected in the jewelry he produced, as well as in his motto, “Creators of the Unusual, As Usual.”
Collectors will want to note that there are several different marks used on Walter Lampl jewelry. Records are scant, so dating of these marks can’t be pinned down with any certainty. The earliest pieces appear to have been marked in block letters with WALTER LAMPL or simply LAMPL. Occasionally a block letter WL is seen. Most of these also appear to be earlier pieces. Script lettering “by Lampl” was being used during Walter, Sr.’s lifetime and beyond. The mark most often seen by the mid-1940s and after, however, is the script WL on a shield.
Walter Lampl was truly a giant of a man. As a human being his warmth, humor, generosity, and loving nature will never be forgotten by those who knew him. As an entrepreneur, his story has all the elements of the American dream. Through intelligence, hard work, and skilled application of his enormous energies he rose from the most humble beginnings and created a safe haven for his family and employees through some of the most difficult years this nation has ever seen. The material evidence of his love of quality, his whimsical tastes, and his respect for his customers will continue for many, many years to come in the collections of those who love beautiful jewelry.
