    Hello CW Friends, Here is another find from a rummage sale. I found this 4 years ago at a tiny sale. These ladies only had hats, purses, scarves and jewelry. One table had fine jewelry and everyone was crowded there. I wandered to a table of costume jewelry with hardly anything on it, but sitting there was this At $2, what could I do? It was a must have for me almost at any price.. Now I exaggerate. I also stopped by the fine jewelry table and bought something there too:)
    This dates from 1941. Design patent, attributed to A. Philippe, is number 125,162.
    Enjoy and thanks for stopping by.

      Another rummage sale Maureen?
      That's it, I want your zip code!
      I agree with Ken, who knows his Trifari, that this is stunning!
      I've never seen this clip before, nearly 80 years old!
      Amazing find!!!

      Eileen, Ken, Raven3766 and all CW friends. I would love to go rummage sale shopping with you. The problem is. The sales are few and far between, as we all have lamented. I only know of one I would like to mention - a fabulous sale I used to go to in Chicago. This was 20 years ago, but I see online they still hold it. It was the fall Winnetka Community House Sale. It is held in an old school and each 'department' has a room. The jewelry room was huge. The same day the Kenillworth Union Church had its sale and that was awesome, too. Highly recommend both. Let's do a field trip! Best, Maureen

      What a lovely Philippe clip, the drum type center and cascading stones are a lovely design. Thank you so much for that Winnetka house & Kenilworth church sale info, if I am ever in the Chicago area in the fall I will certainly look for those sales, your finds there are incredible - online this piece would probably be super costly!

      What fun that would be...
      Only a 35 hour drive @ 2,400 miles...
      Yes, I looked it up, Ha!
      How much fun to go to a sale like that.
      When I was 15, there was a place called Rummage Hall in Santa Barbara, where my Mother would take me to buy school clothes. ( Santa Barbara, not the Rummage Hall- Ha)
      My Mother, her friend & I would go sometimes to the Hall and when they opened the doors, all these ladies would swarm to the back to where the jewelry counter was. I remember getting bead necklaces and tearing them apart for hippie beads.. The ladies were most likely looking for gold & such, not what we desire here. Oh, to turn back the clock!

      Wow, what an awesome find! It’s funny how most people think that costume equals junk, but a lot of times may be worth more than fine pieces.
    7. plein-air-painter, 1 year ago
      Thanks Mrstyndall, I agree.
      Eileen, I love your stories of Rummage Sales of yore. They sounded like they were so much fun. I can only remember a couple, athough my mother did also go antiquing on occasion.

      Thanks, Collectors, for the loves.

      I saw that Trifari made this piece with colored "fruit salad" ( right term?) stones.
      I prefer the clear crystal, seems more elegant.
    9. plein-air-painter, 1 year ago
      Hi Eileen, yes they call these fruit salad stones and they did make colors. You can see a bunch of different ones on the morning glory antiques website. I like the clear also, but I would take any I find.:)

      Mary I can't love a post a second time, although when I see one I have loved I reflexively try to. I think you have to comment, that's what does it. So thank you!

      six-o-one Thank you for the comment and love, too. I love finding old Trifari. I feel like I have stumbled on something that has an exciting history.
