Elzac Ceramic & Blue Lucite Bonnet Head Pin Elzac Ceramic & Blue Lucite Bonnet Head Pin
Vintage 1940's brooch is nicknamed the "Bonnet Head" because of the fabulous lucite headpiece. The face is ceramic, with painted features. Brunialti's costume jewelry reference book attributes this design to Elzac, a California Pottery company who made other whimsical ceramic and lucite figurals. This one measures 3" in height. The lucite is nice and thick and has held up well over time. It's affixed to the back of the ceramic with a strong glue, and there is a two-part metal pinback embedded in the lucite. Condition is very good overall, though the lip paint was either not put on well to begin with, or there has been some loss. - $150

Parrot Pearls Piggies To Market Theme Pins Parrot Pearls Piggies To Market Theme Pins
Love these artisan-crafted ceramic pins by PARROT PEARLS, a San Francisco Bay area company no longer in operation. One pin depicts three pigs heading "To Market" in a riff on the nursery rhyme "To Market To Market To Buy a Fat Pig" or possibly the counting rhyme "This Little Piggy." I've included a second Parrot Pearls pig pin headed in the opposite direction (he is not an exact match, with pink polka dots instead of splotches, but he is very close and I think these look cute together). To Market pin measures 2 7/8" across; single pig measures 1 5/8" across. Excellent condition. - $60
