Crown Trifari Vintage Christmas Tree Brooch and Published Collectible

Bitchin Retro


Unique Christmas brooch with faceted orb rhinestones that provide for exceptional color and sparkle. This vintage holiday stunner is also a published book piece, featured in "Christmas Tree Pins" by Nancy Yunker Trowbridge (2002) pg. 147.

2 1/4" long x 1 1/2" wide.

We clean, inspect and return vintage treasures to their best possible condition. Decades of old makeup, dirt and dust are removed and pieces receive a light polish. This process takes many attempts and sometimes hours of work. This is in stark contrast to most sellers. Our vintage jewelry is ready to wear, and in the best possible condition we were able to provide. It is a labor of love, and we think it shows in our photos and in person.

Bitchin Retro Notes: This brooch is in excellent vintage condition, has been thoroughly cleaned and given a light polish. It had quite a lot of excess glue around the base of the orbs. This glue dulls some of the light reflection thru the rhinestones. We painstakingly removed the glue, without damaging the rhinestones. This gives the brooch much more sparkle than it did when we acquired it, as there is additional light reflection. The gold tone finish received a light polishing. Of note: the black background really made the rhinestones pop when the flash of our camera interacted with the lights in our photography box. The light was absorbed a bit more against the white background. The true color of the rhinestones is somewhere in between. Please see condition descriptions below.

Vintage jewelry is rarely perfect. We will do our best to note any obvious flaws, but flea bites, and small scratches are to be expected. Please view all photos with zoom to see characteristics of this listing, and note the measurements provided, as we use a telephoto lens to show as much visual detail as we can. This may enhance both size perception and imperfections actually not visible without magnification, but allows you to see the quality of the piece. We would be happy to answer any questions or provide additional photos. 

Condition Descriptions:

Excellent = very little to no visible wear, though minimal flea bites/scratches may be seen thru a loupe.

Very Good = normal wear and tear typical for the age which can be seen up close, as well as flea bites/scratches seen thru a loupe.

Average = significant wear seen with and without a loupe. We will note specifics and provide photos. 

We want you to be happy with your purchase, and have provided information to highlight the features and any imperfections or vintage love on our pieces. We also share condition descriptions (and lots of pictures) so that you are aware of how we arrived at our opinion. If despite our best efforts we miss something, we will be happy to work with you. 

Give us an opportunity to make it right...because we will.
