VINTAGE MODERNIST KUNIO MATSUMOTO TRIFARI NECKLACE
HAMMERED GOLD PLATED METAL
SIGNED ON THE REVERSE WITH THE TRIFARI SCRIPT SIGNATURE. WHILE IT DOES NOT CARRY THE KUNIO MATSUMOTO SIGNATURE, OTHER PIECES IN THIS DESIGN LIKELY CARRY HIS MARK. 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.

Very good - excellent condition, there are no issues to note.
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
