This is a collectible figural pin made by the Brier Manufacturing company of Providence, RI, as part of their “Little Nemo” line. The piece is made in the form of a sailor. I’ve seen this piece dated as being made during the 1940s (WWII era), although I think that this may be an earlier one. It is enamel painted and I believe that the metal is brass - the piece has good weight and does not attract a magnet, except for the pin part. The piece is not marked, but my understanding is that some Little Nemo pieces were marked “L/N” and some were not marked at all, only identified on the card that they were attached to. It measures 1 1//2” in height. It is in very good condition except for some wear/chipping to the paint (see photo) - I would estimate that at least 90% of the paint is still present.
This is a hard to find figural Little Nemo pin - great addition to a collection!
