A truly whimsical, yet functional brooch with a retractable chain in the back to hold any number of items for the well-outfitted lady. These were marketed in the 1940s & 1950s as “The Paly Pin – A California Product.” This one holds a small lipstick, but would work equally well to hold a dance pencil, small pen, perfume bottle, or glasses (if they are not too heavy). The retracting mechanism is made by Ketcham & McDougall of Orange, N.J. The little lamb brooch is quite cute. Excellent condition. The brooch measures about 2 3/4 inches tall and 2 1/4 inches head to tail. I have two others that I will list later.
