Gold and Enamel RAF Sweetheart Brooch.
Very nicely made bar brooch with the wings and crown crest of the Royal Air Force. Pale blue enamel background to the RAF circle, which has the laurel wreath surround. Tiny dots of red enamel inside the crown. Brooch is stamped 9ct at the rear, but unusually for 9ct, this is very yellow gold which goes well with the blue. There is a tiny flick safety catch on the pin clasp of the brooch. Item measures 5.3 cm long and the crest is 1.1 cm high. Excellent condition, just a very slight kink in the pin. Probably dates from the 1950s. Sweetheart brooches were often given to sweethearts, wives or mothers by RAF personnel, and worn as a point of pride. TW: 3.6g.
