I purchased 3 of these pendants recently, from a woman who has had them since the 1960s.

This is a 1968 pendant in thick goldtone with deep black engraving that reads: "war is not healthy for children and other living things." The back is stamped: "ANOTHER MOTHER FOR PEACE BEVERLY HILLS CALIF. 1968" with a copyright symbol.

This pendant has never been worn, and comes with its original chain. Measures 1 ½ inches high and 1 1/8 inches wide. The chain is 23" and closes securely with a ring clasp. In excellent condition, with minor surface wear as shown that is original to the piece.

A 1960s icon!

Here is some history on the sunflower symbol and the organization behind it, from Another Mother's website: "Another Mother for Peace was founded in 1967 by a group of women strongly opposed to the war in Vietnam. Their mission was to create a non-partisan, non-profit organization 'to educate women to take an active role in eliminating war as a means of solving disputes between nations, people and ideologies.' The organization’s vision was embodied in the Another Mother for Peace logo ... created by Lorraine Schneider... This irrefutable statement with its brilliant and childlike design appeared on posters, bumper stickers, note cards, letter seals, key rings, and of course, the distinctive gold medallions ... A simple yet powerful statement of conscience, the sunflower logo helped make Another Mother for Peace one of the most eloquent and effective anti-war voices of its generation."
