Palestine/Yishuv: named pin of the WIZO "Institution for Mother and Child Care" in Tel-Aviv, in silver(?), circa. 1920s'-30s; not maker-marked; size: 27mm; weight: 4.15. Engraved on the back the name "Shulamit Hu-Ami". The Institution was founded in 1927, but was ill-starred in the scandal of the abducted children of Yemenite immigrants (1948-54) when it turned out that the institute served as a covert adoption facility for those children.
