1941 Trifari Purple Rhinestone Flower Bouquet Fur Clip - Design Patent
This vintage 1941 Trifari fur clip is made from gold-washed pot metal. It features two faceted, bezel-set purple glass rhinestone flowers, each with 5 petals, and is accented with 3 goldtone leaves and a ribbon wrap around the stem. There is a very sturdy pin clip on the reverse.
This particular fur clip is not marked "Trifari," and I have not seen any of this style that are. However, it is marked "PAT. PEND." on the reverse, and its construction corresponds with Trifari Design Patent 129,179, issued in August 1941. (pictured)
The clip measures 3-1/4" long and 2-1/8" across at its widest point. There is some very minor gold-wash loss on the reverse.
