This is a gorgeous example of Alfred Phillipe's designs for Trifari. It is signed (very hard to read but it is there) and marked Pat. Pend. The Patent number for this pin is 172557 and is dated July 6, 1954. The gold-tone metal is so rich and beautiful it is hard to believe it is not the real thing. The pastel flowers are made up of oval faceted rhinestones. What a beautiful effect.
The pin measures approximately 1-5/8" x 1-1/2" and is in excellent condition.
