Trifari Gilded Leopard Figural Brooch with Enamel Details, circa 1980s

About

Gorgeous gold-plated leopard figural brooch with black enamel spots by Trifari, circa 1980s. Trifari is a highly collected costume jewelry brand, noted for its quality and intricate details. Trifari Jewelry, established in 1910, is the namesake of its Naples Italy native founder, Gustavo Trifari who was born into a family of goldsmiths. Trifari's vision was in contrast to the period designs of Coco Chanel and others who were making big, bold statement pieces of costume jewelry. Trifari used an array of materials like rhinestones, coral, enamel, jade, and colored stones. Other costume jewelry designers like Kenneth Jay Lane, Renoir and Matisse, and Miriam Haskell designed jewelry with similarity to Trifari but the Trifari pieces stood out for their fine craftsmanship, unique designs, and overall understated beauty. Trifari designers were trained and worked for high-end and elite fine jewelry firms, as demonstrated by Alfred Philippe, their lead designer from 1930 to 1968. During this period of Trifari market dominance, Philippe introduced high level craftsmanship and invisible settings. Alfred Philippe taught other Trifari designers the same fine jewelry making techniques he learned at prestigious jewelry firms of Cartier and Van Cleef and Arpels. DETAILS: - Gold-plated - Signed Trifari on verso - Safety catch pin fastening - Measures approx 3.5" x 2" - Circa 1980s CONDITION: Excellent vintage condition, ready to be worn and enjoyed immediately.
