      Wow, so this giraffe was made between 1925-1940? That makes him AT LEAST 80 years old!
      He is amazing condition!
      Staret is very sought after, and rare, being signed for only 7 years makes the pieces so.
      I didn’t know Staret jewelry started out with the hallmark “STAR”
      Thanks so much for the info Lori! You taught me something new today!
