Rare Trifari 1942 tree clip pin pink blue enamel. This pin is one that is rarely seen, and was manufactured at the time the Ming collection was. In keeping with the theme, it has always reminded me of a cherry blossom tree. This one has the pink tree trunk with blue flower amidst the two-tone green foliage. Scattered throughout are rhinestones for added dimension. The pin measures 2 inches long and is marked both Trifari, and Pat. Pending.
This is one of several pieces that were beaten up badly by the time we received them. Even so, the worst part of the enameling loss is one of the blue flowers, which gives off a shine like the rhinestones due to the rhodium plating, and the yellow centers of the flowers. I would say that overall, its not in much of any worse condition than the one shown in Brunialti's American Costume Jewelry. We are selling if as is, put if you are more concerned with looks than keeping it all original, my husband is an artist and could touch up these spots for a nominal price.
