The Pink Lady Collection
|The figural pins from the 1940 s-50 don’t get much better than this! This pin appears in many of the vintage jewelry collectors' and is well known, and sought after by those collectors. The carved lucite donkey has the a devilish smile, Kinda makes one wonder if he doesn't want a nap himself. The devilish part looks to me like he knows he is going to have to get that rider off his back or no nap. The sleeping hombre is molded in colorful bakelite, and he has a brightly painted wood sombrero and he is also hand painted on top of a resin wash. The pin measures 2 1/4” tall, 2” wide and is 1/2” thick so it is nice and chunky. It is in excellent condition with no chips, fleabites or cracks and guaranteed to be vintage Bakelite. There is some minor paint wear on the donkey’s hooves. It would be a perfect gift for your collector friend.|
