Trifari Precious Pet Pin Collection Includes Horse/Butterfly/Lion and Earrings
The Trifari Precious Pet pin series was introduced in 1967 in the March issue of Harper's Bazaar Magazine. Each of the six animals was shown with its respective call, such as the horse saying “whiney” in its prancing pose. Covered in a white enamel finish, the body is topped with a raised navy blue floral design. The eyes are tear drop shaped green glass cabochons. The 7/8 inch diameter clip earrings are a scarce find from the series. We're offering half the set here which includes the horse at 2-3/8 inches long by 1.75 inch wide, the butterfly measuring 2-1/8 inch tall, and the lion at 1.75 inch tall, plus the earrings. The condition is very good with only the normal slight imperfections in some of the blue dots during manufacturing (see dot on horse neck in close-up), and one that is chipped on the butterfly. I'm not sure if the butterfly antenna are original or not.
