Most of you know the story behind the Christmas collection of D & E. Only four brooches made and for only one season. Very rare! To find a piece is very hard, but diligence paid off. This time of year is when to look! I found a jewelry lot with a D & E wreath a couple days ago , so now I have two of their beautiful wreathes in my collection!
LOOK AT THE LAST TWO PHOTOS!
I nearly flipped when I came across this piece, in a jewelry lot. Never have I seen the wreath with a yellow flame! And there are other differences too! While the “original” brooch is set in gold and open backed, the yellow flame brooch is set in silver and close-backed! Also the red “berries” are multi pronged, and the halo has much larger rs around the “candle”. I had come across a long lost treasure! Sadly, the dangles to the bow were broken off, so I didn’t purchase it! The seller was kind enough to allow me to show his pictures. I doubt we will ever se this “style” again...ever!
