VINTAGE LARGE KUNIO MATSUMOTO TRIFARI PENDANT NECKLACE
STRIKING ENAMEL COLORS
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 TRIFARI 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.
MORE INFO: THIS IDENTICAL SIGNATURE IS ALSO SHOWN ON THE "RESEARCHING COSTUME JEWELRY" WEBSITE AS KUNIO MATSUMOTO, BOTH WITH AND WITHOUT HIS NAME SIGNATURE
Fabulous chevron design is dimensional and striking. High quality design and construction is seen as expected with KM designs. This features gold metal and enameled top piece which is attached securely to a solid lucite piece, so constructed that it seems to be one large pendant. The colors are grayed blues and maroons with lighter and dark shades of blue.
Long, serpentine chain, neck length measures approx. 28" No clasp, just pop it over your head
Pendant measures 2~1/4" long x 2~1/4" across.
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
