IVORY COLORED LUCITE BEADS AND FOCAL PIECE
THREE STRANDS OF BEADS ON ONE SIDE. SINGLE STRAND ON THE OTHER
SIGNED ON THE REVERSE WITH THE TRIFARI SCRIPT SIGNATURE. WHILE IT DOES NOT CARRY THE KUNIO MATSUMOTO SIGNATURE, OTHER PIECES IN THIS DESIGN CARRY HIS MARK. ONE SUCH SIGNED KM BROOCH IS AN ALMOST IDENTICAL DESIGN. IT'S FOR SALE ON THE NET RIGHT NOW. THIS WAS NOT UNUSUAL FOR TRIFARI, WHICH SOMETIMES LEFT OFF HIS SIGNATURE ON PIECES OF A COLLECTION IF IT PROVED DIFFICULT GIVEN THE PIECE DESIGN TO DO SO
Abstract, divided, focal component is composed of ivory colored lucite and brushed silver metal on the top and bottom side, This lucite piece features three raised oval circles on the front and two on the back. Sleek, and smooth, a distinct KM design.
Very good - excellent condition, there are no issues to note. Looks as if it was never worn
Please keep in mind though we may rate vintage jewelry as in very good to excellent vintage condition, these pieces are pre-owned and may show very gentle wear. This is only pertaining to normal wear as in very slight loss of brilliance in stones, faint, barely visible scratches on metal, and patina on certain metals such as brass and silver / silver plated metal
