Sarah Coventry Vintage Flower Flattery Pin w Earrings 1960s Jewelry $42


When this flower pin and clip earring set were made, flower power was in full swing.

It was 1968, just before the Summer of Love, and no matter where you were in the US, if you met a hippie, they would give you a flower and say " Peace"! It was a very sad time in this country too, as we were in a war no one understood, and our sons and brothers were coming home in body bags to no end. We marched and protested and raged against the machine to stop Johnson and Nixon's war agenda. We didn't want war. We wanted Peace, Love, and Flowers.

If all the Hippies would just come back today and put an end to the war we are in now. So, with great humility I say, wear this flower pin and earrings, and say "Peace" to everyone you meet.
This set is designer signed by Sarah Coventry and it was only made in 1968. The name of the design is called Flower Flattery. The large flowers are made of polished gold plated metal with thick glossy white enamel.

Large in size, the pin is 3 3/4" long x 2 1/4" wide or 95 mm x 57 mm. The clip earrings are 1 1/4" or 32 mm wide. The entire set is in pristine clean like new condition with no imperfections or flaws and has never been worn. The enamel is perfect with no chips, scratches, or scuffs. There is no gold wear. The earrings clips are like new and the back of the pin has the original fine working safety clasp.
