Art Deco Copper & Enamel Windmill Vintage Enamel Pin Brooch - 1930sVintage Brooch
Art Deco Copper & Enamel Windmill vintage pin brooch is part of a popular figural series made in the 1930s out of scrap copper. The pin is large and bright at 2 1/4 inches. The foliage is enamel and rhinestones flowers in perfect condition. All purple-toned rhinestones on the vanes are original and bright. The copper could be polished if desired. This was a highly popular use of tiny bits of scrap copper, a manufacturing "use it all" method created during WW2 when metals were scarce. These pieces were considered a reasonable and cost-effective "vermeil" look and to date have lasted as bright and shining examples of manufacturing ingenuity. There are a series of these well-made brooches that are desirable collectibles. The pin back on this piece is straight and strong, the clasp locks securely.
