Vintage Crown Trifari Bolero 1950s Bracelet and Earrings with Black Cabochons
Vintage Crown Trifari 1950s Bracelet and Earrings with Black Cabochons This superb Crown Trifari set features a bracelet and matching earrings. The bracelet is a series of 7 links of goldtone metal centered with oval black cabochons. The matching earrings feature the same design. This set was featured in Trifari's 1955 ad campaign entitled "The rhythm of fashion..." We find this to be a very mid-century modern look - one we'd expect to see worn on an episode of "Mad Men" !!! It can also be found featured in Julia Carroll's book "Collecting Costume Jewelry 202" on page 216. The bracelet measures 7 1/4 inches long and 1 1/2 inches wide. There is a sweet foldover clasp that blends into the design nicely. It is marked on the reverse of the clasp with the Crown Trifari mark and a copyright symbol. The clip backs earrings measure 1 1/8 x 3/4 inch. The clip backs ar marked with the Crown Trifari mark. The clip backs work smoothly and hold the earrings snugly to the ear. The only condition issue we find is some slight discoloration to the metal on the backs of the bracelet and earrings -- commensurate with age.
