Trifari 1940s Scarce Sterling Jelly Belly Sailfish Fur Pin ClipTrifari 1940s Scarce Sterling Jelly Belly Sailfish Fur Pin ClipTrifari 1940s Scarce Sterling Jelly Belly Sailfish Fur Pin Clip

Some of the most sought after costume jewelry from the 1940s are jelly bellys. These wonderful creations use clear lucite as the belly of an animal such as this one.

This wonderful example was designed by Norman Bel Geddes for Trifari and the design was patented August 26, 1941. In typical fashion, the belly is clear lucite. Small clear rhinestones cover the head and wrap around the tail. The large sail fin and tail are sterling silver with a wash giving it a golden color. A red glass bullet cabachon eye is the finishing touch.

Signed Trifari, sterling, Des Pat No. 129165, measures 1-3/4" by 2-1/2", circa 1940s, Some very slight wear to vermeil, the pins stems have a small bend and the clip is a tiny bit loose but would not effect wear. All else in excellent condition.
