This pin is from the 1960's. It was handmade in Pennsylvania Dutch country by the Amish and was sold at the local open markets. Men carved the pins, and the women did the painting. I don't believe the Amish continue this tradition today.
The pin is hand carved in a country art design, similar to the designs you see on their barns and houses. They were painted with red, white and blue enamels with highlights in gold, and clear coated. The designs are burnished into the wood, accounting for the dark brown color. The pin is 1 3/4" wide, unpainted back and old C clasp. It is unsigned and in excellent condition.
