Trifari "Dew Drops" 1949 Green Fruit Salad Fur Clip
This fabulous and rare Trifari fur clip is from their 1949 "Dew Drops" collection, also referred to as fruit salad jewelry. The gold Trifanium setting is adorned with prong set molded glass flowers and leaves with a sprinkling of rhinestones. A lovely curled crescent is set with clear rhinestones. The fur clip mechanism features a roll over safety clasp on one side for added security when wearing. These pieces are getting increasingly hard to find. I also have the matching earrings to this piece, even harder to find than the fur clip! The matching necklace to this piece is shown in Brunialti's "A Tribute to America on page 146. The necklace was also shown in Vogue magazine in 1949. The clip measures 1 1/2 by 1 1/4" and is signed Trifari pat pend.
