This is a sweet little piece! Comprised of a fur clip brooch fashioned into an adorable bird embellished with red, blue and yellow enamel or cold paint....perched on a green leafy branch....finished with tiny rhinestones. The clip mechanism features a double prong and single hook construction meant to have been worn on the lapel of a fur or heavy coat. Silver tone rhodium plating setting.
Signed Trifari with the Crown over the Tall T on the back of the clip mechanism and Des. Pat. No 113790 on the back. Pat issued to Alfred Philippe 1939.
Clip / brooch measures 1-3/4 inches high by 1-1/2 inches wide.
Slight bit of yellow enamel loss on the beak and a little bit of green enamel loss from one of the leaf edges. Otherwise very good vintage condition. Tweety!
