D & E, as you all know by now, made many musical instrument figural brooches in the early 60’s.
Anthony DeLizza designed a violin to add to the collection. ( yes, I have one). This little banjo is identical to my purple & fuchsia banjo, with wire-over floret, figure 8’s, and beautiful gold plating. All D & E design traits.
Even the teeny “petals” on the floret are prong set, with 3 tiny prongs, not the usual 4. Though not a huge fan of all AB stones on a piece, this one, I hope you all agree, is lovely!
