A quirky and very unusual WWII sweetheart pin made of pot metal decorated with red, white, and blue rhinestones. It is an anthropomorphic caterpillar wearing a top hat and bow neck tie that is playing a double bass! This piece is not signed and I was not able to locate another like it.
Condition: In very good condition. This originally had a gold wash or gold plating that has mostly rubbed off the front. So the pin looks quite silver. All of the stones are original. The clasp is a little tight but it holds well.
