Vintage Trio 1960s Black White Orange Enamel Flower Brooches One Crown Trifari

US$495per set

About

For you, a trio of vintage 1960s enamel flower brooches. One black and gold-tone crown Trifari daisy, a white unsigned gardenia, and an orange and gold-tone unsigned petal flower. They are in great vintage condition please see photos. I couldn’t stand to separate this trio of brooches just because they look so awesome together. The black one, I’m calling a daisy, has multiple petals with a gold-tone crown-like stamen and is signed Trifari© with the crown emblem above the T. The white one is definitely a gardenia with gold tipped petals and is unsigned. The fabulous orange one has ten petals with a gold-tone button centre and is unsigned as well. Each pin is approximately 2.5 inches in diameter. I have priced the group together but will sell them individually if you want just one. If sold individually, the black Trifari would be $275 and the white and orange unsigned ones would be $125 each. This trio of gorgeous flowers would look wonderful grouped together on a jacket and when not being worn would look incredible framed and hanging on the wall! Brooch sizes: Black 2.5 x 2.5 x .75 inches White 2.5 x 2.5 x .75 inches Orange 2.5 x 2.5 x .5 inches Weight under 1 pound.

About the Jeweler

Trifari

Costume jewelry maker Trifari is widely beloved for its fine craftsmanship and complex designs for necklaces, brooches and other accessories. The company was formed in New York during the early 1920s, when its partners Gustavo Trifari (who descended from a family of jewelers), Leo Krussman and Carl Fishel (business associates in hair-ornament manufacturing) recognized, as other designers during the Art Deco era such as Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel had, that fashion trends for affordable jewelry for everyday wear represented an opportunity (and that the popularity of shorter hairstyles didn’t bode well for their haircomb business).

Initially called Trifari, Krussman and Fishel Jewelry (T.K.F.), the trio eventually shortened their brand’s name, at the suggestion of an advertising professional, to Trifari in order to evoke the romance of Gustavo’s native Italy.

The hiring of French designer Alfred Philippe as head designer in 1930 was pivotal to Trifari’s success. A master craftsman who had worked with both Cartier and Van Cleef & Arpels, Philippe set about establishing the same high-quality standards of materials and craftsmanship in the design of costume jewelry and trained other Trifari artisans to do the same. Settings were delicate; crystals were hand set; designs, which sometimes featured dazzling floral motifs or exquisite depictions of marine life, were sophisticated and elegant, having both the look and feel of fine jewelry. First Lady Mamie Eisenhower wore a Trifari parure of faux pearls to her husband’s presidential inauguration in 1953 and Trifari glass pearls to his inaugural ball in 1957.

Before retiring in 1968, Philippe created Trifari’s most recognizable designs. In the 1930s, when the company was custom-making accessories for the stars of Broadway musicals, it was the crown motif: These brooches became so often identified with the brand that a crown was eventually incorporated into the trademark. In the 1940s, the “Jelly Bellies” inspired affection as well as knockoffs; these were animals, birds and insects sporting a “belly” of clear Lucite. Clip-Mates were another favorite and a technical marvel — two dress clips that, joined together, created a brooch.
