Model: P188Label: Trifari
A vintage Crown Trifari Donkey brooch by Alfred Philippe circa 1940s.
Lovely golden body, with clear and pink marquise cut rhinestone ears and a tiny chaton cut red rhinestone eye.
I have also seen this same animal piece with a clear and blue ear. And with a rhinestone studded under belly and tail. So it must have been a popular piece that was re-made a couple of times.
It measures just over 1 inch across so is quite a small piece - see the size of it in my hand.
It could do with a rub with a soft cloth or polish around the body of the donkey, i'm sure it would come up shiny, however we have left this for the new owner to keep it original. It looks to be in very good vintage condition. Fastens on the back with pin and roll lock clasp.
Signed on the back with a crown over the 'T' of the Trifari.
