Wonderful old WWII piece of Carved Mother of Pearl (or Abalone Shell) in the shape of a military soldiers dress hat.

It measures 2" long and 1 1/4" tall (5.08 x 3.175cm) in excellent condition.

The Military insignia and the pin back are glued on securely. Probably purchased in Japan during the war and sent home to Mother, wife or sweetheart back in the States in the early 1930's.

When I first saw this piece I thought it was like a floating comment like you see in the comic strips, a bubble with words in it pointed at the person (or Critter) speaking.

It could easily be engraved with the Military persons name in it or words like.... "I Love Rod" ..."My son is in the Army".... or the more traditional ...." Mother" ..."Proud mother of an Army Sargent" ....."Someone Special Loves ME!"
