This Lovely brooch designed by Alfred Philippe features a lovely open bow accented with pave set rectangular baguette shaped crystal rhinestones. There are no chatons or any other shapes, just charming sparkling crystal clear baguette stones. All stones are full of life and glimmer and sparkle a plenty.
Measures 2-3/4" x roughly 1-1/2".
This dates prior to 1953, as it is marked Trifari Pat Pend on the back. The patent was granted in January of 1953. Pictures of the patent sketches illustrate this brooch reversed from my photos.
Condition is very good vintage. When worn it looks great. If you look through a loupe under good lighting, you can see some minor wear to the gold tone metal.
Signed Trifari Pat Pend on the Back. A very pretty feminine brooch.
