I’m not sure how anyone could wear this one it’s so heavy. Maybe on a heavy-duty winter coat! It is about 4″ across and weighs twice as much as the orange and plastic pin I shared earlier.

    Wow, this is one hulking flower! Looks like it weighs a pound!

    I used to collect pins in the 70’s. The ones that were large and heavy drove me nuts as they always tipped forward and pulled whatever fabric they were attached to with them. So I walked around with lopsided clothes ( before I had hair to match) and the back of the pins were always exposed. I finally resigned myself to just collecting them and not wearing them. With this said, this is still a great addition to your collection.

    BEAUTIFUL..the shading is incredible…
    I was wondering if you were finding great vintage to wear with your pins???

      I wish! Alas, I’m not lucky enough to be a size that would fit into most vintage clothing (at least that I’ve ever seen).
