We were lucky to find these cute pins as new old stock - never used - in a Brooklyn, New York warehouse. They are cleverly made and most are in good shape for their age. There is some wear from handling on some of the blue pigs.
The pin is made of metal and the color is hand painted. The pigs are blue with white and black accents. Each of the pins are the same and feature baby pigs hanging from the mother. There is an additional loop at the front of the pin. The background metal is golden, probably brass.
These were made by a novelty company - not a jewelry company - so please be careful when working with them.
Each is stamped with HONG KONG on the back.
Each measures about 1-1/8 inch wide and 1-1/8 high (including the baby pigs).
For mid-20th-century novelties, these are quite well made.
