This week I wore my red airplane brooch. It was part of a large vintage brooch lot I bought a few months ago through eBay. It really pops when I wear it on this striped shirt.
But there is something mysterious about this particular brooch.
The missing dangle
If you look closely, you see a small chain attached to the wing. So the question that arises is: What would have been dangling at the bottom of this red airplane brooch?!
Maybe a bomb?
Or an entire name? A red bow maybe… The skyline of a city?
A paratrooper? Perhaps it used to have letters dangling?
The search continues
Sadly I have no idea. I double checked, and there was no dangle attached to the brooch while it was being sold on eBay. It would be great if I ever came across a similar brooch that is still intact. But for now, the only thing I can do is more research of imagine what would have been there….
Do you own an airplane brooch? Maybe with a dangle? This is my only one. I do have another one. It’s actually for sale in the Broesj Shop. It does not have a bangle or a missing bangle ;-) But it’s still super cute.
Happy weekend fellow brooch lovers!
