    I think that these two pieces are really pretty. Neither piece is marked. I have seen similar butterflies listed as Juliana, but not sure. Any ideas?

      That beautiful butterefly may be by Weiss also. When I was researching them once I found pieces like this were exact replicas of Weiss items. Either way a perfect piece !~

      Oh I am in love with the sunning butterfly brooch ! Gorgeous

      Very nice Mrstyndall, they would look great worn together, on a Sweater, or Coat, to Brighten up a Cloudy day! :^)

      Both lovely pieces, the butterfly's head frame does remind me of Juliana, but Eileen will know

      You're right Jenni, here's one very similar:

      I like it no matter! LOL :^)
    6. Ms.CrystalShip Ms.CrystalShip, 10 days ago
      Both are beautiful pieces!
      I love the detail on the " branch" brooch, I always click on the pictures fore they give you such a better viewing of our treasures.
      I believe Phil is right, Weiss made butterflys with every stone & metal imaginable...
      Not D & E, the pin mechanism is wrong. This kinda throws me as Weiss used joint/catch mechanisms too, but maybe not on all. I wonder if it's the orignal to the brooch?
      Either way, wonderful finds MrsT as always!
    7. Ms.CrystalShip Ms.CrystalShip, 10 days ago
      Ok I believe this to be a toss -up...
      D & E used riveted pin mechanisms on very few pieces, but they did use them. I read somewhere they were used on their "lower-end" jewelry, This brooch is NOT lower-end, but it could of been made by D & E for another company?
      The scrolled antenna are also an attribute to D & E , but not solely.
      Both companies, Weiss & D & E made 100's of different butterflies, so when you get right down to it, who knows?
      I think we can all agree MrsT. has a lovely butterfly :)

      Phil, thanks for the suggestion. I guess some pieces we will never truly know since they are not signed.
    9. Mrstyndall Mrstyndall, 10 days ago
      Mani, glad you like the butterfly! I really like the colors on it too :)
    10. Mrstyndall Mrstyndall, 10 days ago
      Bill, they do compliment each other! Thanks for your great comment and the info.
    11. valentino97 valentino97, 10 days ago
      Both wonderful - but I really love that butterfly!

      I'm pretty sure that the Yellow Butterfly Brooch is the same Brooch, just different colored stones. The shape, front and back are the same, so I'd say Julianna D & E, at least by the information given on the post! :^)
    13. billretirecoll billretirecoll, 10 days ago
      Here's another on Etsy:

      I hope this helps! :^)
    14. billretirecoll billretirecoll, 10 days ago
      It looks like the scrolled antenna are connected at the scroll on the Juliana D & E Butterfly Brooch, and they a separate on the Weiss Butterfly Brooch. Just one more thing that I noticed about the differences with the two Makers, but copies could look like either! :^)

      The delicateness of the first brooch is like a little fern, both are really beautiful!
    16. Mrstyndall Mrstyndall, 9 days ago
      Jenni, thank you-glad you like!
    17. Mrstyndall Mrstyndall, 9 days ago
      Eileen, thank you so much for the info. So, I guess a toss up between Weiss and Juliana-who knows. I know if I had a company and made jewelry, my name or mark would definitely be on the back, especially on something so lovely
    18. Mrstyndall Mrstyndall, 9 days ago
      Valentino, glad you like the butterfly!
    19. Mrstyndall Mrstyndall, 9 days ago
      Bill, thanks for the added links and info. I guess some pieces we will never know 100% who made them. We just have to look at the clues and guess :)
    20. Mrstyndall Mrstyndall, 9 days ago
      Lauren, I am glad you like the brooches-thanks for commenting
    21. PhilDMorris PhilDMorris, 9 days ago
      Mani posted 2 of the butterfly brooches and one matches this one, although it was somewhat larger than yours. I could see even counting all the stones that it was exactly like ones of Weiss that were marked and pictured online.

      A few years ago I was researching D & E jewelry. I found a website named ImageEvent, where Frank Delizza was identifying his jewelry. He said that sometimes they used fastened and soldered on pins. If your brooch were mine, I would feel comfortable calling it a product of D and E Jewelry.
