    Wing Pin

    I found some sort of wings around a few late 1800s/early 1900s things at a recently demolished house. It was bent when I found it, but I unbent it a bit. Looks a bit like a piece of a WWII pilot badge, but I'm not sure.

    I think it may be a nouveau brooch, like here: Egyptian Revival Wings Brooch [13471] : Nouveau Deco Arts
