Description: gold plated base metal, rhinestones, cabochons
Marked: Trifari with Crown, Des Pat No 155196
Reference: The use of the smooth sapphire cabochon, textured detailing on the gold, and the pearls, identify this as a 1956 revisitation of the patented 1949 design (the patent is reproduced below) - for which see Brunialti, American Costume Jewelry - Art and Industry (2008) Vol 2 p 151 and TKF5370. The 1949 patent was still valid in 1956 (7 year term), so the number was stamped on these pieces.Advertised for sale at Kaufmann's, in the Pittsburg Post Gazette, 15 Feb 1956, p 16; click thumbnail above to view advertisement
