To actually have found this rare brooch amazes me!
It was mixed in a Christmas Jewelry lot on Ebay.
I still can hardly believe my eyes!
The Christmas brooches from D & E are so rare! I have never seen the Holly Leaf and the Double Bell & Wreath only a couple times. Sold for $$$! One other tree years ago sold for $700! It is supposed to be the rarest of the four, but I believe the Holly Leaf is, in my search.
D & E made Christmas brooches for only one season. They made four brooches... a Holly Leaf, a Wreath with a Candle & Halo, a Double Bell with Dangle Beads & the Christmas Tree... You will see many Christmas trees on Ebay claiming to be Juliana. They are not. This little guy is the only one made by D & E exclusively, and is in wonderful condition for it's age...50+ years!
Christmas came early to me this year. Now to find the other three. (Never happen).
