Hi CW Collectors, I'm posting this brooch because I love Trifari. I bought this piece a number of years ago at my favorite tiny antiques mall. The owners call it a mall, but most would not as it is mostly furniture and about 30 tall cases. I loved this one dealer who I was told was the daughter of retired jewelers. She had the best things! This was designed by Alfred Spaney who was an important designer for Trifari in the early 1940s. His designs do not continue after that time, so I wonder if he was killed in WWII. This design is Patent 130,089, dated October 21, 1941. He did a series of brooches with floral motifs.
Thanks for stopping by and hopefully loving my post.
