La Conga Maraca PinLa Conga Maraca PinLa Conga Maraca PinLa Conga Maraca Pin

This vintage pin from the 1930's to 1940's era is partially celluloid. The Cuban line dance; the Conga, began to gain a foothold in the US around 1929, when the original La Conga nightclub opened its doors in Manhattan. Not only was the New York night club a hit but shortly thereafter, Latin musicals hit the theaters and the love for the dance went wild.

These popular early plastic Maraca pins were made to shake and rattle like a real maraca and this one does. The Maraca swings from the top bar pin where the words "La Conga" are printed. The color blue of this one seems to be a bit harder to find. The "bulb" portion of the Maraca has a tiny little split but the sound is not diminished. The maraca measures approx. 2 1/4"L x 1 1/4" W
