Item Description

Original Items: Only One Available. This is an incredible war time produced “Remember Pearl Harbor'' brooch very similar to those made by the Chicago based Star Novelty Jewelry Company in 1942. At first, the jewelers marked their decorations as “Star” from 1922-1940. However, after a trial with Gabrielle Chanel in the 1940s, the company changed its name to Staret.
The attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941 ignited not only anger towards the enemy, it also sparked a wildfire of patriotism in every American in all corners of the country. As the war effort was kicked into overdrive, Americans did everything they could to remind each other why they were fighting and what could be lost. A prime example of these reminders is this brooch you are looking at here. It is very patriotic in nature and design, with the slogan “Remember Pearl Harbor” with a pearl instead of the word “Pearl”. In the early years of WWII how could you not remember Pearl Harbor?
The brooch features beautiful rhinestones encrusted wings in red, white and blue giving it a very beautiful patriotic touch. In the center of the wings is a single faux pearl which is used in place of the word “Pearl”. The pearl sits in a circle in the center of the wings with text in red featured above the pearl and text below in blue.

Most of the “gold” plating has been retained and only has a few areas of heavy wear and loss of color. All stones appear to be present, they just need to be cleaned up slightly if you would wish to do so. The pin arm and catch on the back are complete and fully functional.
This is a truly incredible and seldom seen piece of history. This brooch is welcomed into any WWII American homefront collections and comes more than ready to display!
