If you are a lover of interesting and unusual vintage and antique jewelry, you've come to the right place. I try to keep a nice mix of fine and costume pieces that range in age from 19th century Victorian to late 20th century vintage designer couture. I have all sorts of wonderful pieces up for sale at the moment. Please be sure to browse ALL of the listings and check back often as I will be listing heavily over the next few weeks. Fresh from a fine Texas estate comes a rare and most wonderful vintage sterling silver, rhinestone, and lucite jelly belly insect or bug brooch designed by Alfred Philippe for Trifari circa 1943(I have included a copy of the original patent drawing in the sale for reference). Philippe had worked for Cartier and Van Cleef and Arpels before coming to Trifari and his ability to create costume jewelry that mimicked fine jewelry is unmatched. The brooch measures approx 1 7/8" x 1 3/4" and is signed "TRIFARI DES PAT NO 137200 STERLING" on the underside. The condition is very fine with no damage and light wear consistent with age. Feel free to email me with any questions and please be sure to check out my other sales for more great pieces of vintage jewelry and many other interesting and unusual pieces of art deco, mid century modern, and hollywood regency design. TEXANS PLEASE NOTE: SALES TAX WILL BE ADDED TO THE FINAL PURCHASE PRICE.
