This is such a unique, and interesting piece. It features a woman swimmer, who is wearing a classic 1930's style bathing suit and cap. The suit and cap are royal blue enamel. The silver colored metal that makes up the swimmer's body is etched to show detail, and appears to be slightly brushed. This looks like tiny, shallow scratches, when held into direct light. There are no such marks, or any damage, to the enamel, so I believe that this was intentionally done. There is minor wear to the chrome finish, as shown in the first, enlarged photo. On the back is, "Stratton Birmingham, Copyright". There is a simple, two piece embedded pin, which is straight, secure, and works fine. This lovely bathing beauty measures just under 3 inches long.
