    Here is a 2 1-2"L vintage brooch showing a pair of sailors with white rhinestone hats & upper body, emerald green rhinestone heads and worn enamel uniforms. Unmarked, appears to be made of forties pot metal. Inspired by a similar design by Marcel Boucher that had faux pearls for heads

      Ahh...what sweet little dears! Just in time for WW1 commemorations(which are very big all this week where I am....)
      These two look like their shambling reluctantly back to the ship- Maybe the Captain didn't give them shore leave for THAT long?!!!

      Thanks ho2, I thought it was pretty cool too, back when sailors looked carefree. Appreciate the great comment

      Eileen isn't it very "on the town", the sailors do appear to be stepping out on their leave! Thank you for enjoying my fun nostalgic piece, my Dad was a sailor in the 50s and this reminds me of his old uniform. Great words, many thanks

      Thomas and Ken, thank you for noticing the unusual quality of this, it's simple but appropriate for Navy seamen vets, and yes Ken it's very similar to the costly Boucher version which is too rich for my blood - great comments guys, thanx so much

      My imaginative friend Lauren, love your ability to create a mood for these sailors, you're fantastic! They probably never got shore leave for very long, some guys didn't even get passes to leave their ship, poor them. It's so nice you are having wartime commemorations in your area, sometimes we have parades, these guys sure deserve many honors. Thanx for your fabulous comment

      Anchors aweigh & appreciate the luv all
      and thanx for the like hunterqlee

      Sincere thanks Hoot for the very thoughtful love, these vintage sailors always remind me of veterans holidays & my dad the Navy radioman in the Korean war, it is nice to see temporarily carefree servicemen at a time of intense wartime, getting a little break
