I have a signed Copa de Oro that looks similar to your #93 tropical boy on horse (or giraffe). Mine is a tropical girl with the same flowers all around, holding a basket or flowers in her right hand and a butterfly perched on her left hand. It's very nice. Do you know what it might be worth?

I have a Elzac yellow dog figurine, same color yellow as Squirrel #71, with a lucite green bow on his back. Have had him for 30 years. Picked him up at a rummage sale in Watertown, SD. Love you collection.

Can you tell me if Elzac ever made pieces other than pins? I have a cheese plate, small with a mouse whos' head swivels and , to me, it feels like Elzac. The mouse is so whimsical and the plate is about 5x5.

I really appreciated your photos. I collected Elzac for about 20 years - got my first piece in, I think, either 1979 or 1980. I'm selling them off a few at a time right now, but I still love them. I didn't realize the wood dog with the lucite ears was Elzac - I have him, will have to try and track him down. I am also trying to identify some similar brooches, smaller, but quite elaborate, that I suspect aren't Elzac, but what? They have tiny rhinestone eyes - anyone know what I mean?

Thank you for sharing all the Elzac pieces. I have book marked this page so I can look and enjoy. I have also just started collecting and am very excited!!

Several of my most prized possessions are two Mary Jane Hart horses. One is white with gold mane and blue stars, the other is exactly like your Copa de Oro horse with boy only without boy. Thank you for helping me identify the artist. My father gave these to my mother probably between 1948-52. He was a buyer at May Company in downtown L.A. but I have no clue where he made the purchase. As a horse crazy youngster I would spend hours in the (no one enters here unless we have company) living room, playing with these figurines. I was probably responsible for the damages that led to the 2 glue repaired spots on the white horse. The red/pink flowered horse is in better condition. Thanks again for helping me ID these family treasures.

I have just recently found some Elzac pieces! I was so excited when I saw two at a thrift shop. My first one was the Pegasus in blue with a pink Lucite wing. They are all fabulous. I was delighted to find this website with all of the great pictures!

Hi. I recently purchased a ceramic Indian chief head. It looks like it could be elzac, but it isn't signed or labeled. Can I send you a picture so you can see it? Thanks. Patricia

This is the "Elzac Museum"!!!Thanks for sharing these wonderful pieces for all to see. My absolute fav is the bakelite bracelet with the Elzac styled ladies heads. What an outrageous & beautiful piece of art.

I have a blackamoor brooch exactly like the one you show on the "men" Elzac page, the one playing the drum.

Your collection has my head spinning. I can only find the common pieces. The creativity of the individuals who are responsible for these wonderful pins really deserve high praise. I cannot tell you how often I peek at these pins. The "Victims of Fashion" are just killer-dillers. Keep 'em coming. Cannot fathom how many are out there. Was Black Magic a trademark used by Elzac too, or is that something else? Many thanks.

I was just given this information by a friend of mine who has been buying/selling/collecting for years. I have the bunny, which is similar to the dog. It has a blue ceramic face and yellow lucite ears. Don't see it in your collection. Just thought I would mention it. Your site is absolutely stunning and has opened up a whole new world to me. Thanks to you and to my friend Geri!

I was just given a Copo de Oro elephant with extravagnt gilded tail. The pin back is missing and there is a sticker on the back that says "Rosie". I would love any information you have on Copa de Oro. Your collection is just exceptional. Thanks for sharing the pictures!

Cathy: I have just learned something new today. I had never heard of Elzac jewelry and after you mentioned it in your email I looked it up and look where it took me. To your Elzac page. I love learning new things. Thank you. Gwen

Really enjoyed your collection! Why doesn't someone do a book on the art Elzac/Victim of Fashion jewelry???

Hi Cathy, what a fabulous collection. I love the wowmen's faces and the oriental pieces too. I hadn't ever seen Elzac so thanks for the education! Nancy R
