This butterfly brooch is truly a beautiful creation of the masters of DeLizza
& Elster and their line of Juliana. It's completely outlined with shimmering
aurora borealis crystals, the wings have root beer color navettes and the
abdomen is made of root beer chatons. All the stones are prong-set. This
definitely is a statement piece and will collect a lot of compliments. It is
approx. 3 inches long and 2 inches wide. It is in excellent vintage condition.
I know you will love this butterfly it's so unique and so vintage. ENJOY!!!
In 1947, William DeLizza and Harold Elster founded their company DeLizza &
Elster, also known as D&E, in New York City. Their vision was to design and
manufacture high quality costume jewelry and accessories bringing some glam and
sparkle for the customers after World War ll. Their line of products were a
huge hit and in time their list of clients grew to over 800 firms, like Coro,
Hobe, Weiss, Kramer, Hattie Carnegie, Sarah Coventry, and so many more well
known firms. In the 60's they created their own personal line called Juliana.
They made them with amazing art glass stones and metals and the design was not
like any others. The pieces were not signed, they used hang-tags instead. So it
really helps to know their materials and techniques of manufacturing and
studying books in order to identify.
I am a private collector, not a business and I'm thinning out all of my
collectibles and vintage treasures I've obtained over the many years. All sales
The majority of the jewelry I have belonged to my grandmother. She had a lot
and she loved wearing them all the time.
Thank you so much for looking!!!
Please check out my other items at my store. I'm new to this selling on line,
I'm not a computer wiz at all LOL, so it is a slower process for me to list but
I will be doing my best. I will be adding new listings most days. I am thinning
out all of my TREASURES that I have collected over the many years. I have
strived to collect over the years unique, good quality, fun and whimsical,
beautiful and elegant, exciting, collectibles and Treasures. I collected these
with passion and love of the hunt for my own personal collection and not to
resale. Now though, the time has come to let go to new homes and new passions.
All of my Treasures are either antique, vintage, and /or Collectible and some
can show signs of age, use, wear and sold as is. ENJOY!
