Stunning Rare & Hard to Find Brooch designed by Alfred Philippe for Trifari dates between 1938 - 1942. Hallmarked “Trifari” with the crown over the “T”. Beautiful condition. Prongs on reverse (holding large crystal) show wear to the plating as to be expected as they are the high points on the reverse.
