Another Orsome Orange birthday present! 3-1/4" x 1-1/2" Catalin (same chemical makeup as bakelite) and wood giraffe pin. Simple brass embedded c-clasp. Pic 3 shows it had painted hooves and the 1/4" thickness of the wood base. Definitely proves that my birds are new. https://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/274284-red-lovebirds--are-they-bakelite.
These novelty pins were popular during WWII timeframe. Many wood pins, also leather and felt pins were home kits.
I found this delightful pin online for half the price of the birds - oh well. Happy October, Orange and Orsome!
