This gorgeous brooch has a huge molded glass stone in a pierced design of one flower and twining ivy and leaves. It is set in a two-tier construction with the bottom tier having three cup groupings of smaller opaque turquoise rhinestones interspersed with larger opaque turquoise rhinestones and teal rhinestones. The top tier has the same three cup groupings alternating with more of the small teal rhinestones.
As with many D&E pieces, all of the stones are prong-set, this time in bright gold-tone.
The brooch is 2-3/8" long x 2" wide and is nicely domed at 3/8" deep.
t is in excellent condition with no chips or cracks to the pierced glass stone, all the rhinestones sparkling and the plating intact with a little expected wear to the pin stem (the black of my camera is reflecting in the gold-tone).
Matching pieces of this iconic D&E piece can be found in Katerina Musetti's book, "Juliana Jewelry".
