Additional information




1 3/4" x 2"


Excellent (minor wear to back)


1942-1947 (based on mark and use of sterling, per Brunialti)


"TRIFARI" (with crown) and "STERLING"

This flower basket brooch by Trifari was made during WWII, when romanticism was in style. This piece has faceted, oval amethyst-glass flowers surrounded by diamanté leaves in a diamanté-trimmed basket. The setting is rhodium-plated sterling silver; the pin closes with a roll-over safety clasp. The design, materials and color combination make this brooch timeless. Two others by this maker in the same design are available: one has ruby flowers; the other, aquamarine – scroll down to see them. All three pieces are from my personal collection. Choose your favorite color, or take all three to wear in different combinations!
