Vtg ALFRED PHILIPPE TRIFARI Beau Belles White Milk Glass Flower Necklace Bk Piec
This is a LOVELY spring and summery Trifari necklace by Alfred Philippe for Trifari from the 'Beau Belles' series. It has an art nouveau style glass centerpiece of three lovely milk glass flowers and berries attached to a milk glass bead chain. In gold tone metal. The series was produced in 1953 from drawings by famed designer Alfred Philippe. It is patent #169174 shown on page 252 of Julia Carroll's Costume Jewelry 202. It appeared in an advertisement which read, 'She will think it's Christmas!.....Jewels by Trifari.' (I've included a picture). There are other variations of it, but I think this one is the prettiest. It is also harder to find.
It measures 16.75" from end to end; adjustable under that length. The gold tone is in excellent condition. The only place there is darkening is on the J hook. There are no chips or cracks to the glass. It is signed 'Trifari pat pend' inside the J hook, so I'm unable to photograph it. But I promise it is there. This exquisite necklace is in overall excellent vintage condition.
Shipped with delivery confirmation, insurance and tracking (I always wait in line to watch scanning since they miss so many) and packed safely in a gift box.
I have MANY great pieces to list, so please come back to
