I have a brooch that looks to be a piece of American studio silver, but I have been unable to find a reference for the maker's mark. The piece is silver & copper with a semiprecious stone. The maker's mark is "Rudy". Does anyone have any idea who this smith is/was? Thanks!

Can you guestimate how old your piece would be? Do you know where it came from?

The piece looks like it could be as old as late 1950's, more likely later than that. I have no idea where it came from. It is marked other than the maker's mark with Silver & Copper and CU (isn't that the chemical designation for copper?)
