Most of you already know the story... D & E made Christmas brooches for only one season, and made very few of them. There are four to be had. The Tree, the Double Bells, the Wreath, and the Holly Leaf. That's it. In all my years of collecting, I have seen two trees, which is supposed to be the rarest of all, two Bells, three, maybe four Wreaths, and I have never seen the Holly Leaf.
I was being lazy one morning, just scrolling on a favorite auction website, and maybe an hour into looking I came across the Bells! No mention of D & E, or Juliana. Just a generic description of a Christmas brooch! The price was next to nothing for this rarity, and it was a "Buy it now", and I did!
This piece had been listed for nearly two weeks and no one spotted it!!
Isn't it wonderful to know your jewelry?! I don't feel guilty for getting this piece so cheap, as I will never resell...never.
It's mine! Lol.
