Circa: 1940 Country of Origin: United States Manufacturer: Gruver Chicago
This pinkish-red rose flower pin sits atop a triple serrated leaf frond with carved veins. The leaves are celluloid, and I think the rose is as well. It measures 3 inches wide, the rose is a little less than 1-3/4" diameter. The back is marked Gruver Chicago with a torch logo. Gruver made celluloid compacts, vanity items, and pinback buttons. The brooch probably dates to the 1940s, possibly late 1930s. In excellent condition with no chips or scratches.
