Vintage 1940s Trifari Alfred Philippe Gold Shell Fur Clip Pat. 137545
VINTAGE TRIFARI GOLD SHELL FUR CLIP
A lovely vintage fur clip constructed of gold tone metal in a classic shell design. The clip is designed by Alfred Philippe for Trifari and dates to 1944 with the patent number 137545. The clip is signed on the reverse with the 'Trifari' mark and the patent number.
A fur clip is a piece of jewellery which has two long prongs on a spring steel which allows the decorative clip to be worn on a heavy fabric or fur coat.
The clip measures 5cm in length and 4cm in width.
Condition: In good vintage condition some of the gold tone has worn away to reveal the base metal underneath and there is a small scratch on the back of the clip.
Please study the photos as they show any signs of wear as would be expected with vintage or antique jewellery.
