Vintage 1940's Trifari Tessellated Honeycomb Lariat Choker Necklace.
This is a great looking and highly collectible piece designed by Alfred Philippe for Trifari. Very fluid necklace in a very short choker length that is meant to be worn up high and tight to fit the neck snugly..... in a tessellated or honeycomb pattern of small hinged sections....tied in the front (riveted) and crossing over to drape in asymmetrical fashion. Polished gold tone finish setting.
Necklace is signed Trifari Pat Pend on the back of the clasp.
Necklace measures a very short 13-1/8 inches around the throat (best suited for a petite or slim neck) with each ribbon extending down 2-3/4 and 3-1/4 inches long by 3/8 inch wide.
There is a spot of finish worn away near the clasp (view photo), Vintage condition is otherwise very good. Slinky!
