This is one of MYLU's most fun and harder-to-find red and white candy-cane-striped Christmas bell pins with a swinging peppermint clapper. The pin is highly dimensional, and the clapper is almost 3D. The large bell hangs from a gold-tone ribbon decorated with green-painted holly leaves and red rhinestone berries. This pin has ALL of the features I associate with MYLU: beautiful craftsmanship, their trademark metallic paints/enamels, rhinestone embellishments, multi-part construction and/or moving parts, and excellent plating of gold-tone. This large pin is in overall good condition and shows well, but there is noticeable loss to the metallic paint on several of the red stripes and it is priced accordingly. The metallic paint is somewhat fragile, and this is often the only aspect of Mylu pins that show wear. The saving grace is that the gold-tone plating found on Mylu pins is gorgeous, and it covers the whole pin, even where it is painted, so when there is wear the lustrous golden finish peeks through. Each of the holly leaves on the top of the brooch still retain some of their original metallic green paint. The sparkling red rhinestone berries are intact and in very good condition.
The back is marked MYLU. One of the nice features of Mylu pins is that the pin mechanism is attached at both ends and is not a separate light-weight riveted pin back. The rollover safety clasp pin mechanism is in fine working order and runs across the back of the ribbon from which the bell hangs.
Measures approximately 2 7/8” tall by 2” wide. In the last photo it is shown next to a quarter for scale.
MYLU is my absolute favorite maker of Christmas jewelry. Established by Lynne Gordon and Marge Borofsky in the 1960s, MYLU was in business for a relatively short time. It became a division of Coro in 1968, and closed in the early 1970s. This is one of several MYLU pins I have for sale in my shop.
