Trifari Alfred Philippe 1956 Moghul Paisley Leaf Brooch with Tricolor Glass Cabochons, Design based on Moghul Jewels, Coloring and Style Similar to Trifari's Jewels of India. Stunning Trifari Brooch by Alfred Philippe from 1956 the oriental "Bagdad" collection inspired by Moghul jewelry designs.
The brooch is in a form of a gold-plated paisley leaf embalished with faux pearls, clear rhinestones, and tricolor glass cabochons: emerald green, ruby red, sapphire blue. The style and colouring of the brooch might mislead you in attributing it to Trifari's "Jewels of India" collection which was presented to the public a little bit later. The brooch is quite large and measures about 7.5 cm (2.75 in) in length and 3.5 cm (1.5 in) in width.
The item is in excellent vintage condition: no tarnish, all crystals and cabochons are in place, no scratches on the faux pearls. Please examine the photos closely as they are a part of the description.
