This Fabulous Alfred Phillipe set was made in 1946 before the patent was approved. Signed Trifari with Crown, Sterling, Pat Pend. The "pat pend" stamp tells me this was pre-patent . These beautiful crowns have prong set emerald cut, marquis and chaton clear stones.
The widest point of the Brooch Crown is 2 inches, the widest point of the crown earrings is 1.25 inches.
I have included copies of the Patents for both the Brooch and Earrings by designer A Philippe,
filed June 1946, granted July 1947. So this piece was sometime before July 1947 as stated above reference to the pat pend stamp. Miller's Department Store in Knoxville ad is also included and the Christmas Ad from 1946.
This set is in Very Good Vintage condition. The Sterling is rhodium plated and is in excellent condition . The earring clip backs are strong. Most of the stones are bright, only a couple beginning to gray. I can replace those if you ask. I like to leave pieces original as found.
