Non-German Swastika Four Leaf Clover Brooch
by: Anonymous

Good Evening Jenny!

To answer your question Jenny - Yes, this vintage Swastika brooch could have been received by your Great Aunt prior to WWII. The four-leafed clover and the swastika were both considered lucky charms in the pre-Nazi 1920s in the U.S.

The Four Leaf Clover, which appears as the background of the brooch is considered a "lucky" symbol. The Swastika Symbol in the foreground, has for thousands of years, also been used as a sign of luck & protection, in many cultures around the world.

Best Wishes,

yvonne Hammouda-Eyre
