- DESCRIPTION:Extremely Rare & Hard To Find Invisible Set Emerald Green Leaf Brooch designed by Alfred Philippe for KTF (Trifari ) in 1937. Rhodium plated base metal with emerald green waffle stones in the shape of leaves with clear paste stones.
- Trifari was a master in "invisible set" and scarcely used the technique which is why the invisible set pieces are so rare and hard to find. Trifari remade this piece in the 60's with goldplated larger versions. The goldplated versions are the ones I have seen but the early 1937 versions are impossible to find. This is NOT marked Trifari or KTF, but is marked "Pat Pend"
- REFERENCES:See above
- HALLMARKS:Pat Pend
- MEASUREMENTS:2 3/8" x 1 5/8"
- CONDITION:Average. Some plating wear and some darkening to some of the stones.
