The 1980 Fruits



1981 saw the arrival of the first acrylic brooches from Robertson.  Throughout the 1980's there were something like 39 different designs but the first ones were the 5 fruits.  After the 1960's fruits, these designs harked back to the pre-war designs which had the little golly face peering through the leaves.

There are 5 different brooches: Blackcurrent, Lemon, Orange, Raspberry and Strawberry. Each brooch has a clear plastic finish, known as a bubble coating.  The Strawberry can be found both with and without the coating.  None of the badges are backstamped with the manufacturer's name.
