The second picture reveals a 1950's "Trifari" 3 piece parure in dazzling grey and clear rhinestones. It is uncommon to find more than one piece of sets such as this one so I was thrilled with this find! There are several purses in the background; the red velvet with sequins and beads is a drawstring and I suspect it is handmade. The grey bag underneath the red is encrusted with beads and shimmers! The bag that is laying down is the oldest one pictured. The top is fashioned from cut steel and was made to resemble marcasite. The bag opens up like a flap and there are several very fragile pockets on the interior. A flashy multicolored rhinestone pin by "Art" rests atop this wonderful old bag. In the bottom left corner we see a black rhinestone double sword pin by "Weiss"; still on its original card! (what a find!!!).
I am so glad I put my favorite things out on display. Walking by my "favorites cabinet" always relaxes me and reminds me of some of our favorite adventures! Have a sparkly day!
