Just started collecting and learning about vintage costume jewelry. Saw this little guy at a local flea market and he just HAD to come home with me!
I've been researching him last couple days and all I can find is the brooch in this design. All the marks look correct, I just can't find any more info on it. Anyone know what year these came out? I looked through all of the trifari pages and can't seem to come up with anything.
Update, I think I figured out the year. Just picked up a copy of "Costume Jewelry 202" by Julia Carroll and with the hanging stylized T tag (seen in photo) along with "trifari" with solid crown and copyright symbol, I think this is 1954. My next question is rarity...has anyone who has been collecting for a while seen very many of these? Thanks!
(Hope this photo is a little better, I'm a little shaky and have a hard time getting a decent pic.)
