This is a beautiful early Trifari fur clip called tutty fruity fruit salad because of the round fluted glass pieces that make up the body of the stem of grapes on a vine. The top of the stem is a stylize gold washed leaf that is losing some of it's plating in a gradual soft way. This often happens in the jewelry box when items are piled on top of one another. I prefer to think of it as worn and loved. The clip is fully functional and the pin measures 2 1/4" long by 1 1/2" wide. The clip is signed Trifari on the clip and has a patent number 110232 on the bottom berry.

The retailer in me wants more dimension, color, texture and artistry. Beauty or whimsey are a must.
