A patriotic piece of vintage Trifari costume jewelry. The pin is made in the form of a soaring eagle with all the colors of the American flag. This item is made up of a rhodium plated metal foundation which forms this flying eagle accented by pave set white rhinestones as well as red, white, and blue enameling making up the feathers. The eye is made up of a blue glass bead and the back has a pin and locking "C" clasp that holds well. The pin is signed "Trifari Pat. Pend" and this brooch has a patent number of "126799" dating this item to April 22nd, 1941. This piece measures 15/16" long by almost 4" from wing to wing and is in great overall condition with no missing rhinestones and only a minor wear to some of the enamel finish which is to be expected considering the age.
