1940s Pink and Blue Lucite Flying Birds Pin
This vintage Lucite pink and blue flying birds pin dates from the 1940s. It is heat-molded, with lightly painted details. The pin has a glued-on plastic and metal pin mechanism, which was typical of the period for plastic brooches. It is in excellent vintage condition (EUC).
These types of pins were very popular in the 1940s, when the war effort led to severe shortages of metal for jewelry-making.
The pin measures 2-1/2" from wing-tip to wing-tip, and is 1-3/4" across.
