Signed Trifari "Star Flower" Brooch
Trifari did a series of these brooches in 1951. This was the only time they made the four petal flowers called star flowers. This fabulous, dimensional brooch features three, jonquil colored flowers raised above an ornate design embellished with chaton, baguette and navette clear rhinestones in a gold Trifanium setting. There is minor wear to the plating on the back of the brooch, but it is exaggerated by the digital photos. The rhinestones are all clear and bright. Marked Trifari, pat pend. I was unable to find the patent number for this exact design. Measures 2 by 1 1/4".
