1964 Trifari jelly belly owl brooch from the Birds of Fashion series. Enamel on gilt metal with red diamante crystal eyes.
The Jelly Belly series refers to a figural (usually an animal) pin with a rounded middle made out of polished Lucite. Jelly Bellies are must-haves for many collectors of vintage costume jewellery.
Trifari was established in 1910 by Gustavo Trifari and his costume jewellery pieces became synonymous with good quality, craftmanship and unique design. The jewellery is no longer made today which is why the vintage market for the designs has boomed.
