Trifari KTF 1930s Art Deco Rhodium Plate and Round Paste Vintage Dress Clip

Beautiful and so very Deco, this dress clip dates from 1935 to 1936 and is an early creation by Trifari.  

Condition Report:

Very Good - Some stones are beginning to darken due to aging. However, this is only visible upon very close inspection and in certain lights. It does not detract from the overall appeal of the piece.

The Details...

This dress clip is constructed from Rhodium Plated metal. It features a design set with colourless round paste stones of varying sizes. The clip is signed. The 'KTF' mark is stamped on the back of the clip. The dress clip measures 4cm x 3.25cm.  

A Short History...

This dress clip is stamped 'KTF' which stands for Krussman, Trifari and Fishel. Leo Krussman, Gustavo Trifari and Carl Fishel ran the Trifari company together from 1925 and jewellery was stamped with their names until the mid 1930s. Examples of Trifari jewellery featuring the KTF stamp are very rare and highly collectable. 

Wear it With...

This dress clip is perfect for evening wear or a special occasion. It would look beautiful with a little black dress, but equally chic with a bridal gown. Alternatively, wear it in the day - pinned to the top of a buttoned up crisp white shirt.
