    From the DIY era of the 1930-40's is this charming painted wood brooch: 3"x3.5". Not perfect as you can tell the green leaves have some chipped paint. No markings on the back. It has an old c-clasp. Kinda looks Tyrolean, German, Swiss?

    I have a few of these hand-crafted pins in felt, leather and wood but this one is my favorite. I wear it on my favorite jean jacket.

      Kevin - you're right I'd break a tooth off! Seems like the shape of a strawberry...I am not sure. Thanks for laughing with me.

      Thank you FanciGirl! I agree - love this. I just found a perfect new dark fitted denim jacket this will look great on if it ever gets cold enough. We are having another triple-digit heat wave.
