Shades of Carmen Miranda, this plastic Maraca Pin is titled LA CONGA and dates ca. 1940. It comes with its own sound effects and likely originated at La Conga Nightclub, Broadway and Fifty-first, very near Fifty-second in New York City in the 1940’s. Check this web site (http://www.latinpercussion.com/candido.htm). The pin hardware is formed as part of the nameplate and is a simple “C” clasp. A nifty piece of History! Measures 1 ½ x 2 ¾”.

This item was part of the archives of the Bag Lady Emporium, originally in operation from 1996 through 2022 (Inventory ID B00099). It sold for $45.00 in 2009.
