A delightful abstract set that's a little bit fox, a little bit snake. Sexy but sweet and definitely sly! The flat back curb chain has a beautiful drape, with sparkling prong-set gems behind the heads - as if these foxy snakes are wearing pretty collars. Star shaped etching accentuates the twinkle in their mischievous eyes. So fantastic!
This distinctive whimsical design is attributed to Kafin, a somewhat mysterious NYC company that started in the late 40's. Their jewelry was sold in fine department stores around 1950-60 but little else is known about them, and their pieces were not always marked. Finding a matching Kafin set is a rare treat indeed!
Midcentury gold plated metal and crystals. Unmarked. Very good condition with one scratched area on the necklace chain.
Did you know that there exists a fox snake? Yes, it's true! Here in the US, two species of Fox Snake (Eastern & Western) reside along the Mississippi River. It's a large brown snake that has the name not for appearance but for scent, which is similar to that of a Red Fox.
