Unmarked, but identified by photo on pp .63 and 64 in “A Tribute to America” by Carla and Roberto Brunialti Costume Jewelry, 1935-1950
The following information on this wonderful pin from a Tribute to America: The manufacturer is Rice-Weiner & Co., Providence RI, patent number 121,913, filed June 26, 1940. The strong eagle is thus described by The Brunialtis - “silver-plated metal brooch represents the American Eagle in an aggressive position with a bundle of arrow like a bomb held under its claws. The notches and the tips of the arrows are enamelled in the patriotic colors of red, white and blue. I couldn’t begin to describe it better than The Brunialtis, so I’ve taken the liberty to include their description. I will be happy to include a copy of the relevant pages from "A Tribute to America".
A wonderful impressive piece of American costume jewelry history.
A brooch to treasure always.
