    Well, today the yard sale was very productive, found lot of nice brooch, this one is no exception, maybe my first D&E, the backing look right for this maker, now what about the front, quite nice too...…, Comments are open to the more experience Jewelry collector here, many thanks in advance.

    This brooch is 2 inches high by 1.50 inches wide.

    Many thanks for stopping by.
    Alan

      Many jewelry makers resemble D & E. Those are Austria, Judy Lee, Czech and Beau Jewels. I believe your pretty brooch is by Judy Lee going by the filigree and design

      Please forgive me but I have to interject here...D & E jewelry does not resemble Beau Jewels or Judy Lee in any way , shape, or form. The construction of D & E VS Beau Jewels or Judy Lee are like night and day. Yes, D & E used rivets, but sparingly, to connect rosettes & sugar beads to their figurals, among other accents ,but their stones were always hand set in rhodium, silver- tone, gold- tone, and gunmetal. Not to impute Beau Jewels or Judy Lee. They made some lovely jewelry, and please I am not trying to be the “excessive expert” here at all. I have been collecting D & E for nearly 40 years and I have a little expertise when it comes to their jewelry. I’m I an expert? Let’s get this straight, the answer is no and I’ve never tried to be anything but helpful in my comments.
      Sorry to sound off on your post Alan. It’s a lovely little brooch and it does have D & E traits- wire-over and joint & catch pin, so I see your reasoning.

      The filigree doesn't look D&E quality either. Nice - but still a mystery.
