Truly a rare find - a demi-parure of an unsigned early Trifari's ALFRED PHILIPPE Green and Purple Poppy and Lily necklace and bracelet set simply signed DES. The design patent number represents April 4, 1939 and was filed March 4, 1939.
A small coup for any serious Trifari collector this set can be yours. Both pieces are in very good condition for their age. (1) The gold plating has worn away from the connecting halves of the necklace' s chain indicating possible lots of wear by the owner(s). The exquisite state of the enameling however tells a different story.(2) The plating on the bracelet has far less wear but some wear does exist; its' enameling also retains an exquisite state. The green and purple enameling of the flowers and leaves are flawless on both (pics don't do justice to smooth consistent color). The necklace is missing one of its' tiny rhinestones just below the rightmost flower - barely noticeable. The bracelet is also missing one of the tiny rhinestones from the tip of one of the leaves- again barely noticeable. BONUS --- PURPLE ROSE PIN (Not Marked). The center flower on both pieces has a tiny green rhinestone at its' center. (Please view pictures for further evidence of beauty and condition of this set).
