"Dickey Bird" Penis shaped Sexual Badge

Item #1502


Date:  1300 - 1400

     Found in Holland. Winged phallus with legs and a bell. The pin is intact. The typical crown is not present on this example. There is some suggestion that these badges were isued by brothels but they wre more likely to have been parrodies of pilgrim's badges or superstitious badges.
