Vintage 1940s Trifari Fur Clip Faux Pearl Rhinestone Floral
This vintage 1940s faux pearl and rhinestone fur clip designed by Trifari's iconic Alfred Phillipe is so delightfully demure it makes me smile. The design is enchanting, I love the rhinestone encrusted foliage design and the pearl flower buds and the rich rhodium plating. I bought it as soon as I saw it and in my excitement I did not even realize until I got home that one of the pearls had a hole in it, someone had apparently used a drilled pearl as a replacement. Several of the clear chatons were less than brilliant so I decided to send the clip to a professional vintage jewelry restorer who wisely suggested that all the pearls and rhinestones be replaced and the settings and base be thoroughly cleaned. I was speechless when I saw the clip again, it looks amazing, a classic American beauty. Measuring 3 inches x 1.50 inches, the clip is signed Trifari with the Crown and other than slight wear to the rhodium plating on the back it looks virtually pristine. This piece looks fabulous clipped onto a necklace, an evening purse, a belt, a hat, a lapel, a barrette for your hair and... a fur. Putting the bottoms of stick pins, called olives, on the points of the fur clip will prevent accidental pricking. You can have a lot of fun playing with this-it's an accessory and a toy.
Note: The silver neck ring and the pearls are shown to illustrate the versatility of the fur clip and are not included.
