I have only found one other piece similar to this that came from Pittsburgh in 1917. This is a brass fob with funny sayings on both sides. Each side has different characters and words. This is a rare find and treasure that could easily be worn as a pendant. I’ve added this vintage segmented fob chain that is removable to make it wearable if desired.
Front Side Says:
~Here's to our wives and sweethearts - may they never meet!
~Good form but not formality
~Wine and women mirth and laughter
~Sermons and soda the day after
~Here is your goot healdth und your familys
goot healdth und may you All live long
Back Side Says:
~The bubble winked at me and said -
I'll miss you brother when you are dead.
~Here's to love the only fire against which
there is no insurance.
~The good die young - here's to your ripe old age.
~Better smoke here than hereafter
Fob: 5 Inches
