    I am curious if this is a vintage item, any info at all would help. I’m not sure if this is a remake made by pell or by MARY Beth burchardt the wording is a bit confusing on the info card

      Gorgeous Pell brooch & welcome to CW. I am a great fan of Pell jewelry, believe they started in the 40s, but Mary Beth Burchardt was a designer for them in the 1980s, she took many of their classic designs and updated them (they are still the Pell co but she co-signed her pieces, unless in this case she went solo) I have one of her hummingbird brooches that I really love

      Thanks so much for the info I really appreciate it! So would you say this is from the 80s (ish) ?
    3. Newfld Newfld, 2 years ago
      Yes most MBB designs are 80s, this is such a lovely find :)

      This is indeed a lovely piece of Pell...
      And our Jenni knows her stuff when it comes to Pell and many other designers....
      Stunning find!
      And welcome to CW!

      The card says the brooch is a "Fifi Poodle" #175. It's a bow. It's in a MBB box.
      There is no picture of the back. The PELL brooches I've seen are signed.

      Many apologies - reread and I've written a horrible post. No bubbles were intentionally popped!

      Thank you all this information is very helpful! I was confused about the name being fifi but I guess it’s correct? Has anyone else ever seen this brooch? I want to sell it on my vintage Etsy shop but I want to confirm it’s authentic
