He's got a face only a mother could love. A mother and some of us quirky people (you know who you are) who enjoy the offbeat and unusual.
This vintage brooch is certainly unique...and then some. He's the epitome of the lovable geek. He's wearing round eyeglasses, an oversized bowtie and a funny little sailor hat. His face is raised out in a dome shape.
Made of goldtone metal, this boy's face is bright with his smile, showing off clear crystal rhinestone teeth. His ears and eyes are faux red ruby rhinestones and his bowtie is also jeweled.
The pin measures 2 1/8 across by 3 1/4 inches high. It's about 1 1/4 inches deep. The back has a secure rollover clasp. The back plaque is signed W. GERMANY with the maker's mark of the letter 'S' attached front and back. Circa 1950s, the pin is in excellent condition. If you like figurals or faces, this fantastic fun pin is hard to beat.
