This JJ Co. pin is one of the fun pins that made the company famous. This one is a pulley operated clothes line full of laundry held with clothes pegs. A movable cat has grabbed onto a dress and is hanging on for dear life. The pin is pewter or pewter colored metal. It has a bar/safety clasp on the back that seems to hold when fastened to a garment but is loose otherwise. It is 3 inches across and about 2.5 maximum height.
This is an old pin and great for a JJ or cat collector who has all the recent pins. A note for JJ collectors. The company went out of business in 2008 so expect the market to be flooded with replicas since the reason given for their closure was foreign competition.
