I recently found this 2.5" butterscoch bakelite souvenir pin online, probably 1930's. Had to buy it because I loved Zakopane - my 2015 trip to Poland which included this beautiful Southern-most region. We stayed at Hostel Stara Polana, only basic, reluctant English spoken, no internet - 1905 villa - beautiful architecture (yes, remodelled over the years, but still a lot of cool old details everywhere!) including glass fittings such as this lamp and yes, a horse drove by in front as we waited for our tour to Lake Morskie Oko in the Tatra National Park. We were there in June and it rained during our 3 days in Zakopane. We did not see the amazing view of Morskie Oko, clouds hung too low. But it was so magical and now I have this bakelite pin to remind me of this magical place.
