Vintage Trifari Enamel Cabochon Axe Hatchet Pin Brooch


Famed Trifari 'Alfred Philippe' Axe Pin Brooch is said to be an ancient symbol of the elevated status of its wearer. This particular enamel axe pin brooch has such a wonderful color palette with soft blue and pink enamel accenting simulated ruby and moonstone cabochons and offset with sparkling clear rhinestones, it will break the heart of any true costume jewelry lover. Among even the most discriminating of collectors, this is a very highly prized piece of vintage costume jewelry. This magnificent gem of costume jewelry measures approximately 3 1/4" H " X 1-1/2" and has a properly working safety closure. It is signed, "TRIFARI" with a crown over the T and "PAT. PENDING". The word, Trifari, is difficult to see, but it is there. PLEASE NOTE: There is a minute manufacturing defect on one of the decorative leaf sections on the right side above the lower, round, simulated ruby cabochons. This is undetectable without a jeweler's loupe, but must be disclosed. This piece is “As Found” and to our experienced eye, no replacements or repairs have been made. There is no indication of a repair to the originally manufactured pin brooch, but it is often the case in costume jewelry manufacturing that each piece does not emerge from the mold well in a particular spot -- something like my baking! LOL. (Usually costume jewelry houses have a special person who works wonders with manufacturing imperfections.) This was probably thought to be an acceptable flaw. After all, in the early 1940s, this was just "costume or junk jewelry!" The rhinestones appear darkened under magnification and, even so, when worn they are very sparkly to the naked eye. All of the rhinestones are hand set with matching high table rhinestones that are probably hand cut. What a gem! The enamel has tiny flecks and there are small missing spots on the pink tips at the left and top. Your beautiful Vintage Trifari Axe, Hatchet, Tomahawk Pin Brooch will arrive in our signature gift box with silver stretch tie, ready to love or give. A rare opportunity to own a very important piece of vintage Trifari jewelry! (Our #46388-Trifari)
