This is a wonderful lot of vintage flower pins. T is quite a nice variety in style and materials. Most are in at least "good" condition, some have wear but it isn't serious. The pansy or violet with single rhinestone is MARVELLA. Cute, mild wear. Large pin plastic is not marked but I have seen many like this from Germany. Pieces are wired on and the wires are covered with goldtone "plate". They move around a bit but this is how I assume it was made. Simliar pin with red plastic "spiky" beads attached with wire and "fishing line". I just realized this one is marked WEST. GERMANY. It needs some cleaning. Plastic/celluloid pin that is white with teal ? accents and single rhinestone needs light cleaning but is interesting. This measures about 2 3/4 inches across. Off-white celluloid flower pin marked JAPAN on clasp, pin stem somewhat bent, one crack or line (maybe from molding) on back, one petal looks as if it melted a bit on edge. Cleaning would be good. Yellowish, green and red celluloid ? or early plastic flower is neat. One rough spot on edge of one petal. White plastic celluloid ? flower plain but cute, some wear. Shade of pink flower (dogwood ?) is cute, no mark, some wear to black on center pieces. Red rose is ceramic, cute with some wear. Small goldtone flower with clear rhinestones in center is marked BOBLEY. Very nice.

Boxes, doilies, jewelry displays, etc. are for picture-taking purposes only and are not included with auction items unless otherwise stated. I believe in GREAT customer service and I encourage you to e-mail with questions or to request additional pictures but I ask that you give me ample time to answer. I am not always near the computer on the day that auctions are ending. Shipping and handling to be paid by high bidder will be based on weight of package + your zip code (you may e-mail for a quote). We typically ship via first class if an item is light enough and "handling" is whatever is left over but this lot will be too heavy for first class. WE COMBINE SHIPPING. You do not HAVE to buy insurance or delivery confirmation but we suggest at least one for all items. Insurance covers you in case of loss or damage, delivery confirmation does not. It provides you, however, with a way of tracking the progess of your package. We take great care in packaging and mailing your purchases but we can't be responsible for the actions of the USPS. If you would like to BUY delivery confirmation, please let us know IN ADVANCE OF PAYING FOR YOUR ITEM(S) and we can add this to your invoice . Personal checks are fine but t is a 7-10 business day hold for items paid for in this manner. Thanks for respecting this policy. Buyers from other countries are welcome but will pay more for shipping. Thanks for looking!
