We are pleased to offer a wonderful and rare vintage necklace. It is marked: "Trifari (with crown over T) ©" on the back. The centerpiece of the necklace is a most charming rabbit head composed of white plastic cabochons forming the ears, nose and cheeks, coral-pink cabochon eyes, and two goldtone teeth! The necklace portion is composed of elongated white tubular beads made from the same material as the rabbit face.
The entire necklace measures approximately 21 inches in length with the rabbit feature measuring approximately 2-1/2"H x 1-3/4"W, 3/4. There is a secure, large rollover safety clasp and a Crown "T" hang tag at the clasp.
We have not been able to find any information about this piece nor have we seen another like it in our research. We estimate the necklace dates to circa 1954 - 60's, based on the time-frame when Trifari used the hang tag. The necklace may also qualify as a jelly belly. It is in very good to excellent condition.
