VERY RARE, Trifari Sterling & Rhinestone Key Brooch.Designed, I understand, by Alfred Phillipe. Marked “Trifari” up the center crown point, “Sterling”, & “Pat Pend” across key teeth, on the back of this very old piece. I have found one identified as 1947 that actually has the patent number stamped in and since this key claims patent pending it seems logical to feel that this is the older version prior to a number being issued. The number on the other dates it 1947. There is no damage to this piece at all although one rhinestone is a bit different color, indicating it probably has been replaced. hThe key as a beautiful rich color, unless of course somebody prefers the high polish in which case, I will let them do it. Measures almost exactly 2 ˝” long and is about 5/8” across key teeth. This item will also be on display at Lincoln Antique Mall, Lincoln Mo. So please check with me regarding availability if interested
