Known as the art glass stone Italian marble in Katerina Musetti's "The Art of Juliana Jewelry", the whitish glass cabochon with gray striations in this wonderful Delizza & Elster brooch / pendant, is surrounded with aurora borealis rhinestones, radiating milk glass navettes and Colorado topaz rhinestones set within goldtone rosettes. An overall view, as well as design, materials, construction and workmanship indicate an undisputed D & E creation.
The brooch / pendant measures about 2 1/2 inches x 2 1/4 inches with a 1/ 2 inch profile. The large Italian marble art glass stone is approximately 24 millimeters x 17 millimeters. Weight of the piece is about 28 grams.
Condition is excellent vintage. All rhinestones intact and brilliant with excellent color retention. Art Glass cab and white glass navettes free from chips, nicks, cracks or breaks. Goldtone finishes intact, front and back with minimal age commensurate finish wear to reverse. Slight bend to pin shaft not affecting function. Prominent figure puddle soldering on reverse as well as riveting and typical Delizza & Elster incorporated pendant hook. Check out the front and reverse in the photos to assure yourself of the D & E provenance. Although not signed, a definite candidate for inclusion in Delizza & Elster's inventory.
Simulated Italian marble, Colorado topaz and ab rhinestones, plus milk glass navettes -- a international recipe of good taste.
