Here’s a pair of 1970’s or 80’s vintage brooch pins, with a dancing fool motif. These two are made from an unknown gold toned metal, with spaces where you could set rhinestones if you wanted to. They’re cool as they are, but adding a bit of color and sparkle would really make them come alive!
MATERIALS, MEASUREMENTS & QUANTITIES
✭ Material = unknown brassy gold toned metal
✭ Size = approximately 50 mm (or just under 2″) tall x 30 mm (about 1.25″) wide.
✭ Quantity = 2 pieces
This vintage lapel pin finding is unsigned, and ready to be embellished. I’ve seen similar designs footed up with colorful enamel accents and/or rhinestones. Again, I’m unsure of the metal type, but it reacts to a magnet. The color is an antique-y brassy gold, and the design has nice, sharp detail. The pinback measures 1″ tall, and it runs vertically down the back.
The little jester has a grand total of 13 spaces where you could set rhinestones if you wanted to. The largest space is on his wand or scepter, and it measures about 3mm (I was able to fit a ss 14 sized rhinestone in there nicely). The remaining 12 spaces are smaller, at about 2mm; I was able to fit a ss 6 sized rhinestone in these spaces, though I think you could even fit a slightly larger pointback stone in there.
As you can see from the last two photos, I also offer this design in a silver tone.
