Antique WCTU Prohibition "Carry A Nation" Hatchet Brooch
Antique prohibition Carry A Nation jewelry lapel brooch. This vintage WCTU brooch depicts a mother of pearl hatchet entwined by a brass serpent.

Carrie Nation was the infamous axe wielding prohibitionist. Born into poverty and ill health in 1846, she would become one of the most iconic, militant figures of the Temperance Movement.
Brooch measures 2.35" long by 1.35" wide and weighs 0.11oz.
