Shy and sweet, this harlequin belies her reputation for mischief. The image seems to be retro, but this pin really is from the 1950s or early 1960s.
The cabochon appears to be made of metal with the lovely picture painted or slipped on it.
These were made by a novelty company - not a jewelry company - so please be careful when working with them.
It measures a bit over 1-1/2 inch and is set in a metal bezel. There is a self-pin on back that has
been attached mechanically rather than by adhesive.
So, for a novelty,
you'll find it pretty well made. There is some slight chipping of the paint, but we think that makes it even more likely a fun piece to wear.
If you're careful, you might choose to remove the cabochon from the bezel and re-paint it or decoupage it with your own design and replace it into the backing.
