This adorable Trifari fly is dates from about 1957.
Fine looking fly brooch has deeply textured Florentine finished wings. The rest of the fly is done in a highly polished gold finish. This brooch has been plated with `Trifarium', a special process developed and used by Trifari, which gives it a lovely shiny gold finish and adds durability. This plating rivals the look of true gold.
Trifari produced a very similar brooch in their Fantasia Series around 1955 or so, with small "black rhinestones". Possibly, this may be from another edition of the series, but I cannot say for sure. I just revised this listing and have reduced the price. None the less, It is a gorgeous pin.
His eyes are emerald green rhinestones. His body is faux mother of pearl which has a lovely satiny almost glowing appearance.
Measures 2-1/8" x 1-3/8". Pin assembly works perfectly. Condition is excellent, showing no sign of wear. Back is marked Trifari © with crown above the T.
