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 Trifari brooch from the 1940s is a flower basket design in the Victorian Revival style. It has faceted, oval ruby-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. Two other brooches by this maker in this design are available: one has aquamarine flowers; the other, amethysts – scroll down to see them. All three are from my personal collection. You could wear one, two, or all together, creating unique looks each time!
