    Please excuse the background in this photo but, can someone please help me look up and identify this Trifari feather or leaf like piece that was made prior to 1969 per the signature type (probably early '60s)? I am sure it will be easily found in Trifari reference books or by seasoned dealers. Thanks!

      Well I don't know what it is you want to know. It's a Trifari feather or leaf like brooch. Did you buy it from Etsy, or sell it on Etsy? Pic is gone from Esty's 'for sale' pages.

      I copied the URL, but pasting here didn't work - just bought up the whole page of Trifari leaf and feather like brooches. When I clicked on it to get a 'view page' offer, it came up as exactly the same pic as Huffstutler posted.

      Gillian, I believe most signed pieces have a designated catalog name for their designs and the year made. That is what I am seeking for this piece and know there are books on Trifari pieces. I purchased this brooch from the person who posted the same photo I did here of my purchase, before receiving it.

      I apologise for questioning you the way I did. I was wrong. This is the CW article on Trifari - http://www.collectorsweekly.com/costume-jewelry/trifari

      At the bottom left there are some suggestions for further reading and research you may want to do. The library and online are good for research too.

      Take a look at some of the prices for pieces up for auction - just hover over one of the pictures. The ones at the top are really expensive.

      Bringing this back up hoping someone can help identify this? Thanks.

      Just bumping this up to see if anyone has anything new to add to help identify this brooch? Thanks!

      Hoping again someone may be able to tell me the name and year for this Trifari brooch? Thanks.
