To those of a certain age, this Lil Abner and Daisy Mae enameled chatelaine figural brooch is a reminder of our childhoods. The comic strip was extremely popular in the 1940s and Daisy Mae was still chasing Abner when it all ended with Al Capp's death many years later. If nothing else, Daisy was peristent! The figures are gold tone metal and enameled. Lil Abner is 2 5/8" by 2" and Daisy Mae is 2 1/8" by 1 5/8". The double chain connecting the figures is 4". Considering their age these figures are in excellent condition with a few tiny chips in the enamel and corrosion on the chain. The brooch is not marked.
