This is a wonderful vintage Trifari brooch that was produced while awaiting final Patent approval. There is a large central faux pearl surrounded by medium faux pearls and large clear rhinestone navettes. The pin has gentle arches ending in small clear rhinestones. The back is marked TRIFARI with a thick crown about the T. It is marked Pat. Pend. and I found the patent was applied for in 1952 under design patent number 166566. This beauty measures 1 3/4" wide.
SIZE AND CONDITION: This is approximately 1 3/4 in diameter and is in Very Good condition. All the stones are clear, sparkling with no darkening or yellowing. There is some slight wear to the gold tone finish in a few areas.
