Trifari "Jellybelly" Penguin Brooch/Pin
Trifari "Jellybelly" penguin brooch/pin, circa 1943. Lucite body with pave rhinestone head, wings, and feet, Sterling frame. Designed by Philippe. Ruby red rhinestone eye (original to the piece) intact. Sterling mark at feet, crown Trifari mark inside head, design patent #135189 on wing. Measures 1.25"w x 2.25"l. Has 9 tiny pave rhinestones missing overall, some darkened. Original gold vermeil over the sterling is worn in some places, mostly on the back. Some small scratches to the Lucite body, but does not detract from the piece. Two "X" marks made by previous owner on back frame. Looks better than most I have seen. Sold as is.
