The one-of-a-kind (OOAK) antique green INDIANA brooch - lapel pin or pendant is an upcycled antique piece of an 1887 geography map and the wood brooch - wearable history pin is a great idea for a timeless gift under $35. The piece came from a two-sided puzzle made in 1887 by Rev. E.J. Clemens. The puzzle was made from solid wood and cut along color lines of the states. It has a United States map dated 1883 from Clemens, of Clayville, New York, on the front side. The back of the puzzle contains a Sherwin Williams ad. The puzzle was part of the "Silent Teacher" Dissected Maps of the United States puzzle series, which were created and distributed to teach US geography to immigrants.

The Sherwin Williams ad has imagery about the availability of the paint for use of the paints and colors for railway cars; as quick-drying coach colors (the horse-drawn type); as well as distemper fresco colors for interior decoration; and, as being available as family paints in small cans - the perfection of convenience.

The INDIANA piece measures 3/4" x 1-1/4" (1.905 cm x 3.175 cm). The brooch - pin has a locking pin clasp on the back and has been given two coats of matte acrylic sealer to protect the surface. Please use zoom on the state brooch photo to view the actual condition of this 19th century puzzle piece.

You have the option to have this piece made into a pendant instead of a brooch (select your choice of a locking pin clasp or a jewelry pendant bail). There is no necklace chain included, and the jewelry piece is not waterproof (it has been sealed with an acrylic sealer to protect the vintage wood map piece, but is not waterproof).

The Indiana brooch - lapel pin will be affixed to card stock that contains a picture of the puzzle header and a brief history of the antique puzzle and its origins.

This brooch - lapel pin is from my pet-free and smoke-free home and has not been worn.
