I try to give credits, link back and reference sources in all of my posts.
Please do not remove them, as I don't own any of these pictures, even if I altered them. Thanks.
These whimsical celluloid Popeye brooches seem to be pretty rare. I found one on ebay by chance, then got curious and tried to find out more of & about them. They all vary a tiny bit from each other, it looks as if they have been handsawn and -painted! I think these pieces may have been made around the 40’s (maybe even earlier) in Europe, as most of them are sold from there and they are most likely unauthorized versions of Popeye. I couldn’t find out what happened to the one’s right foot - it is too absurd.
