Trifari Alfred Phillippe Red Lucite, Mama/Baby Turtles,
I am offering a very nice, near mint pair of the neatest turtle brooches that are many times referred to as “Jelly Belly”. Both have a beautiful red Lucite cabochon center set within a stamped non-magnetic metal of unknown (to me anyway), type. It is either a very aged, un-marked sterling or more probably an aged brass, with beautiful patina and very nicely detailed stamped features on tail, feet and head. Both close with a c-clasp and pin type closure that is in VGC. Mama is right at 1 ¾” long, 1” wide, and ½” tall. Baby is about ¾” long, ½” wide, and 5/16” tall. These are both un-marked but I feel very sure they are Trifari and designed by Alfred Phillippe in the 1940’s era and if so they are over 70 years old. I find no damage on either one, but the red coloring on Mama’s left eye is a bit weak. We are a non-smoking, pet-free home and item(s) has/have no noticeable odors, however, these were brought to us used from elsewhere a short time ago. I will always be willing to combine your multiple purchases to save shipping costs when feasible. Thank you very much for looking. These two items will ship as 3 0z via USPS First Class, and as such I will offer free shipping.
