My mother had several vintage Trifari pieces, of which I inherited. This is the only piece that eludes me. I have searched every website containing every keyword I can think of, yet I cannot find another like it! I do know that it was produced between the late 50's and late 60's, because of it's maker's mark, in that it's stamped with the crown above the (T)rifari, with the copyright symbol at the end of Trifari. I have been called, by some of my counterparts, " obsessive " in my collecting business because I have the absolute need to know the history, i.e., maker, dates, where they were made, etc., and I always say... that's what being a collector is about! So, I guess I'm wondering why, out of approximately 3,ooo or more Trifari images that I've looked at online, I CAN NOT FIND another brooch like this one!!!
