A fairly new addition to my jewelry collection, another pin manufactured in West Germany. Size is about 2 3/4″ by 2″. Love those crazy eyes!

    I love owl artifacts, though most of mine don’t come in the form of jewelry. This one is really cute.

    Do you have other owl pins?

    Are most West German pins of this vintage colored ceramic?

      This is my only owl pin, at least so far!

      This pin (as well as the Dutch children from a couple days ago) appears to be a resin or plastic though I’m not sure of the exact material. All of the W German flowers and butterflies I have are enameled aluminum (or some other light-weight metal) though.
