Celebrating midcentury design, our fanciful reproduction pin was inspired by a stunning jewelry set in The Met collection. The original brooch and matching earrings were made about 1956–60 by Trifari, a noted American maker of fashion jewelry founded in 1918.

First seen in the post- World War II era, brooches in the form of exotic birds, animals, and bouquets were typical of the lighthearted adornments that stylish women favored, a taste that remained in vogue throughout the 1950s. Its style is in keeping with the period's trend toward naturalistic motifs in jewelry, characterized by asymmetry and a feeling of spontaneity and movement.
