Delicate and beautiful, this sterling silver Jolle vintage brooch is a delight! A ruffled, rhinestoned cuff adorns a delicate hand, which is in turn holding a bird that looks ready to take flight. No enameling; this beauty needs nothing more but clear rhinestones and tiny winking red and blue rhinestone accents on the hand's ring and the bird's eye. Excellent condition; note that all rhinestones have been replaced. Measures 2-7/8" at its longest point.
Jolle was a mark of Hess-Appel, Inc., NY, apparently in business beginning in 1943. They were still in business in the 1950s, but I have no information after that period.
