Wonderful novelty pin from circa 1930s. The head is a painted bead and all other parts are metal. The pieces move and dance giving it a look of frivolity and fun. This figural pin reminds me of old-fashioned crib toys or even a juvenile Tin Man from The Wizard of Oz. One friends suggests its in a category called Robotics.
This moving brooch pin is in good to very good, age appropriate condition. It measures 3 3/8" long. The pin back with safety clasp is riveted in place behind the head. There are no marks or hallmarks.
