WW2 Sailor Pin & Flower Holder Brooch
Celluloid Sailor Brooch - 1940's Plastic Navy Man - Vintage WWII Buddy Pin
Description & Style: Early Mid century World War 2 Sailor Buddy pin. He is a large brooch, in comparison to the more common small ones, and is in very good condition. This pin has an applied pin mechanism which is in excellent condition. It's an awesome brooch from this era, because metals were hard to get. Woman and children from these times would collect scrap metal and turn it in, so that military equipment could be made. So, luxury items, like jewellery were often made of plastics. So, this piece is carrying some very interesting history with it.
Also a metal Flower holder brooch, the ring can be raised or lowered to suit different height flowers. Great collector piece.
