This is a rare Sailor Rabbit pin. It is made of enameled sterling by Castlecliff at the beginning of WWII in the 1940's. The sailor has a chipped white hat, rhinestone ears tail, and feet. His sailor suit is dark blue and his nose and mouth are red. The pin measures 2" high By 1 7/8 " wide. He also has a kerchief of rhinestones. The pin weighs 16.28 grams.
Patriotic jewelry from this era are rare and this piece was in the collection of a well known jewelry collector. There are losses to the enamel at the shoulder and one rhinestone is missing from the shoes. This pin would benefit from a polishing cloth. This is a rare tribute to our boys in blue.
