Description

This outstanding brooch was designed by Trifari, Krussman and Fishel in the 1930s. It was sold at Asprey, London, and comes with its original box.

Condition Report:
Very Good - A couple of rhinestones have darkened due to age. However, this is only visible upon very close inspection.

The Details...
This brooch is rhodium plated and rectangular in shape, although slightly undulating. It features what is known as a 'deco maze' design detailed with clear, small, round rhinestones and emerald cut aquamarine and sapphire rhinestones. The brooch fastens with a traditional safety catch and the pin is fitted to the brooch with a round hinge. The brooch measures 2cm x 6cm. The brooch is signed - the stamp 'KTF' can be found on the reverse. it is also engraved with the details of the Asprey boutique where it was sold originally and comes with its original Asprey box.

A Short History...
The jewellery created by Trifari, Krussman and Fishel, such as this brooch, is particularly coveted by both collectors and admirers of the finest vintage costume jewellery, as these pieces represent the earliest years of the renowned Trifari company. They also generally feature the outstanding craftsmanship of Alfred Philippe. Having worked for fine jewellers, like Van Cleef and Arpels, he brought skills to the Trifari company which had only really previously been used with precious stones. Consequently, KTF pieces were sold in fine jewellery retailers like Asprey as alternatives for the wealthy to travel with or enjoy in place of diamonds if they had been hard hit by the Depression.

Wear it With...
Brooches are an exceptionally simple way to add instant vintage styling to any look and interest to plain materials. Pin this piece onto a hat, lapel, collar, cuff, scarf, sleeve, waistline or bag - wear alone or with a selection. The beautiful clear rhinestones in thei heirloom piece also make it a must for a Bride.

FAQs

Yes, of course. Please contact us to arrange to pay for and acquire your vintage pieces through us via layaway.
In order to help you understand the appearance of the pieces you buy, we ask you to read the ‘Condition Report’ on your item. At Gemma Redmond Vintage, there are four categories of condition:
Excellent - The item is in perfect condition.
Very Good - The item is in almost perfect condition. There are one or two signs of wear that are only visible on close inspection.
Good - The item has endured regular use well for its age, but has picked up signs of wear along the way.
Wearable - The item shows a number of signs of wear consistent with its age.
We are able to conclude the authenticity of jewellery through experience and extensive research into jeweller’s marks, design and manufacture techniques and materials used. A number of our items also have a clear provenance and all of our pieces are sourced from reputable dealers or trusted individuals, which further demonstrates their authenticity.
At Gemma Redmond Vintage, we never knowingly sell replica pieces and do our utmost to guarantee the authenticity of your item. We believe in respecting the talent of designers and the heritage of brands. Consequently, if we are in any doubt about the authenticity of a product, then it does not become a part of the collection.
- Be sure to store your jewellery within the boxes that we provide to ensure that it is protected. This is especially important when travelling with your pieces.
- Try not to get perfume or hairspray on your items. These liquids can damage the materials that our jewellery is made from.
- Try not to drop your jewellery or catch your jewellery against hard surfaces. If this happens over time, the findings and fixings can loosen and wear.
- Try not to get your jewellery wet. Some costume jewellery manufacturers utilised water soluble glue in the making of their pieces. Getting your jewellery wet could cause rhinestones and other details to fall away over time.
- If you wish to clean your jewellery, use a soft polishing cloth or a soft brush.
