ORIGINAL BY ROBERTRobert Levy, David Jaffe and Irving Landsman created the Fashioncraft Jewelry Company in New York in 1942. They used the several marks including Fashioncraft, Fashioncraft Robert, Robert and Original by Robert . The company became Robert Originals Inc in 1960.
In 1975 David Jaffe's daughter began work for the company. By 1979 and after Jaffe's retirement, the name became "Ellen designs for Robert Originals" and in 1984 it became "Ellen Designs".
The fabulous beaded jewelry made by this company has often been compared to the work of Miriam Haskell and Stanley Hagler due to the similar use of filigree and intricate beaded design. This is such a sweet brooch. It is crafted from a goldtone metal as an opened yellow umbrella. There is a sweet blue bird perched on the umbrella. The enamel is rich and shiny.
