Loaded with variously sized aurora borealis rhinestones and large clear faceted art glass marquises this matching demi in goldtone has all the characteristics of Delizza & Elster's work. From the joint and catch pin assembly to riveted "floating wire" rosettes to the unfoiled and open back glass marquises and prominent figure 8 puddling this demi is D&E through and through. Generously sized and richly embellished with wire over rosettes and rhinestone punctuated wire rays, the goldtone demi has enough brilliance and shine for the most sparkle starved collector. Beautifully designed and constructed with quality materials and workmanship.
The brooch measures approximately 3 3/8 inches x 1 5/8 inches with a maximum 7/8 inch profile or height. The matching clip earrings are about 1 3/8 inches x 3/4 inch x 5/8 inch high.
Condition of the set is excellent vintage. All components intact. All ab rhinestones intact and brilliant. No dark or dead stones. All faceted clear glass marquises free from chips, cracks or breaks. All goldtone finishes intact, front and back. All soldering secure. Earring clips and pin back strong and secure. All wire overs and wire stems retain shape. Riveting secure. No damage / no repairs. Clean and ready to wear.
As expected, the set is not signed. It has all the hallmarks of D&E's work and is guaranteed to be this maker's product.
