Screwback Lapel Pin with portrait of Marshal Kliment Voroshilov, C 1935 or later.
20mm in diameter, 6.5mm thick. Voroshilov wears his Marshal's uniform in a photo printed on a mirror within in a chrome-plated screwback brass frame. The stars on his collar date this badge to after 1935. Complete with an unmarked nut that may be original to the badge- it will not screw down flush with the back of the badge, but it will screw down far enough to have once held the pin securely in a buttonhole.
Very Fine condition. Glass covering over mirror shows very minor abrasion, silver plating shows virtually no wear. The portrait on the mirrored surface is somewhat dark, but its details are clear and quite visible to the naked eye when the pin is held in the hand.
Typical example of popular Soviet pre-WW 2 mass-produced souvenirs - unusual in that there were very few people whom Stalin was willing to allow to become well known and popular with the Soviet masses.
