Fabulous Fabled Sterling Trifari "Lyre Bird" Brooch
This is one of the more famous Alfred Philippe designs from the 1940s, and as far as I'm concerned one of the most beautiful items Trifari ever made. This one is vermeil (gold plating over Sterling) and set with various shapes and colors of unfoiled glass stones with some small clear ones for emphasis. It is 3" long and 2" wide, so it is substantial. The pin is actually a Bird of Paradise, but that beautiful lyre shaped tail is the reason for the nickname, "lyre bird" and it is set with small bezel set clear rhinestones. This particular one is in excellent condition with no problems that I can see, and it is marked Trifari, Sterling, and has a patent number.
