Patent #: 169,206
Patent Issued: Mar 3, 1953
Company: Trifari, Krussman & Fishel Inc.
Name: Alfred Philippe
From a simple black and white drawing in 1953 by Trifari head designer Alfred Philippe to the real actualized pin...it's certainly more exquisite in person.
Classic Philippe, this gold vermeil pin features a hanging bough of fruit...in the form of purple and lavender rhinestones. Clear round crystals and baguettes accent the larger stones.
Pin measures 1 1/4 by 1 7/8 inches. Back has a secure rollover clasp and is marked TRIFARI PAT. PEND. Excellent vintage condition. Isn't it exciting to own a pin that went from the drawing board to you in only 63 years.
