This auction is for an adorable pin or brooch of an African man's head. This little guy is so cute! His face and neck are handcarved out of mahogany wood; his fez hat and tassle bead, necklace, and earring are all made out of vintage bakelite; his curly black hair is made out of a rubber or plastic coated wire. He is 1 3/4" wide, 3 1/2" tall, and 1" thick (with a pinback). This pin is really, really cute and so unique! He is one of a kind and will add that special something to whatever outfit he is pinned on. The only flaw with this pin is that the little man is missing a small piece of his upper lip. I believe that he used to have a pipe in his mouth, and that when it came out, a little piece of his lip came with it! This imperfection is hardly noticable to anybody but the wearer and doesn't damage his sweet expression one bit! Don't miss out on this amazing brooch -- he is even cuter in person!!!Feel free to e-mail me with any questions you may have, or if you would like to see more pictures of this item.

Thanks for looking and happy bidding Update: We will ship this adorable brooch internationally. I have had questions about shipping to Germany; it would cost about $10.00 USD to ship him to Germany. If you have any questions about shipping to your country, please don't hesitate to ask me. Thanks so much for your interest and good luck!
