Capri DeNicola Frog Large Figural Brooch PinCapri DeNicola
Capri frog is large and almost identical to the Har or CFW frog - who copied who? Capri copied the Har or CFW design which was carried over from the DeNicola designers who worked in the defunct HAR/CFW facilities. DeNicola was renamed Capri in late 1959, early 1960. Bringing us to the identical but vaguely more mysterious CINER frog brooch... What did they all share in common? Designers that carried "their" designs between the New York Manufacturing facilities and made miniscule changes to stave off copyright wars. Confusing, yes but fascinating isn't it? Capri Frog is mint green enamel with rhinestone eyes. He measures 2 x 1 1/4 and in excellent condition. Pin bar straight and clasp locks tight.
