The Trifari Precious Pet Series from 1968. We have had the earlier pet series made in 1967 but this one was made a year later and has some neat additions. This second series features an open work design on the pets body and heads and has red enamel additions that looks very nice. This series features a poodle, sea turtle, lion, owl, and bunny rabbit. Each of the pets is made with a gold tone metal base covered in white enamel. There are raised blue enamel spots on each animal and the eyes and mouth of these creatures is accented with red enamel. The back of each pin is signed "Trifari" and has the pin and locking "C" clasp that holds very well. The turtle measures 1 1/2" tall by 1 3/4" from head to tail. The lion is 2 5/8" long by 1 5/8" wide. The rabbit measures 2 1/8" long by 1 1/4" wide. The owl measures 2" long by 1 1/8" wide and the poodle measures 2 1/2" long by 1 1/4" in width. These pins are in great condition with all the pins and clasps being in great working
condition and the enamel finish is impeccable with no blemishes. This series is so hard to find. They are nine total in this set. I am looking for thr other four. A great collectible set of Trifari Precious Pets!
