Mother of Pearl Heart Shaped Pin with 'Sweetheart'
This pin is made from mother of pearl and has a dangle heart that is goldtone with a dark red set rhinestone. The world "Sweetheart" is in script on the front. I believe this was done in brass. The metal piece feeds through to the back and actually becomes the hook closure. The mother of pearl has a hand carved edge. This heart brooch is 1-1/4" tall x 1-1/4" wide x 1/2" deep. These sweetheart items were very popular during World War II.
This heart pin is in nice condition. It was worn. There is a patina to the metal.
