Undeniable D & E. The company's iconic flower brooch with pear shaped and marquise art glass stones (unfoiled and open backed) and an array of clear and aurora borealis chaton rhinestones can be seen in various research and reference sources. The '60s vintage gold tone brooch features DeLizza & Elster's signature wired blossoms, this version with art glass pears in a light peridot shade augmented with clear and ab rhinestones. A long stemmed beauty forever fresh and fashionable from D & E.
The brooch measures a generous 3 1/8 inches x 1 1/2 inches at it's widest point with a 1/2 inch profile or height. Pear shaped art glass stones are approximately 12 millimeters x 7 millimeters; large center chaton, about 11 millimeters. Weight of the brooch is approximately 18 grams.
Condition is excellent vintage. All components original and intact. All art glass and rhinestones free from chips, nicks, cracks or breaks. "White" rhinestones remain uniformly clear and brilliant. Ab stones retain finish and sparkle. Peridot colored stones retain even light green shades. Wires retain shape and lift. No dents, improper bends, crush or collapse to metal components. Soldering secure. All gold tone finish intact, front and back. Pin mechanism secure. Extremely clean. No damage / no repairs. Excellent vintage.
The brooch, as expected, is not signed. It's design, materials, construction and overall presentation, in conjunction with available references, indicate DeLizza & Elster as maker. Circa 1960s.
Let the flower power of DeLizza & Elster reign on your parade. From Cody's.
