Trifari KTF 1935 Art Deco Rhodium Plated Faux Pearl Vintage Dress Clip

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

Condition Report:

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

More details



The Details...

This dress clip is constructed from Rhodium Plated metal. It is set with colourless round and baguette cut paste stones and faux pearls. Each pearl is detailed with a tiny, bezel set, round, colourless paste stone. The clip is signed. The 'KTF' mark is stamped on the back of the clip. On the inside reverse of the clip there is also a 'KTF'  mark, along with the mark 'REG 1935'. The dress clip measures 4.25cm x 2.5cm.  

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.
