Florence Mother of Pearl Leaf Gold Filled WWII Era Name Pin Brooch.
This sweet brooch has lovely scrolls and flourishes that spell the name Florence in cursive writing, mounted on a carved MOP leaf. The mother of pearl has beautiful pale hues of pinks, yellows and greens that appear when reflecting sunlight. The pin is a C-clasp and a simple spring in lieu of a hinge, as well as a long pin stem. It is lightweight enough to wear on a blouse.
It is unmarked, circa 1940’s and it measures about 2 1/8” across.
Condition: no breaks; minor surface/use scratches on mother of pearl; minor chips in the plating on the pin stem.
Pins like this were popular during World War 2 and can be found in many different styles. This one is particularly nice with the mother of pearl mounting. If you know someone named Florence, this would be an exciting gift for her.
