D & E Juliana
D & E Juliana Vintage Yellow Givre Glass/Pearl Flower Brooch
The DeLizza & Elster Manufacturing Company began operating in 1947 with a showroom on 5th Avenue, New York. Their production of a wide range of costume jewellery was prolific and they also manufactured and sold to a variety of other costume jewellery houses and department stores. They are renowned for the high quality of their stones and settings. The pieces were not signed and jewellery was not marked until 1967 when the company decided to give it a name and identify it with a black and gold "Juliana" hang tag.There are some tell tale signs that a piece is in fact Juliana e.g. brooches were constructed with a soldered in pin assembly.Brooches were set with fantastic art glass and specialty stones highlighted with open and closed back rhinestones and pearls and pointy navettes with a final layering of glittering aurora borealis rhinestones. All shown in this wonderful vibrant yellow brooch. The company ceased operations in the 1990's.
Size is quite substantial at 8cms x 5cms. Set in to gold tone metal with a strong roll over safety catch to the back. In excellent pre loved condition, and gift boxed by Vintageonline.
