Figural Heart World War II Sweetheart Brooch Pin.
This unique pin features two hearts joined by a fancy chain. Each heart has a ‘carved’ edge, black niello finish and decorative sprigs, plus they are personalized with the names of Mary and Junior. These types of pins were popular gifts from soldiers to their sweethearts when they went away to war, so they have been dubbed sweetheart pins.
It is unmarked and each heart measures about ½” across. When fully extended, the chain and both hearts measure 2 5/8” across.
Condition: no missing or broken pieces; some wear to the black surface, commensurate with age.
What a special find! This sweetheart pin is a lovely piece of history that can be proudly worn or displayed as part of a special collection.
