Molotov Cocktail Pin

Iron & Air

A gasoline- and tar-filled bottle topped with an oil-soaked rag. A simple device that became the symbol for insurgency, infiltrating dreams of revolution and sedition. Where you find people standing up against the faceless forces of control, you find these blooming flowers of revolt.

This incendiary device got its name after Soviet foreign minister Vyacheslav Mikhailovich Molotov stated that the carpet bombs he was dropping on Finland were actually “aid packages.” The Finns sarcastically dubbed these bombs Molotov bread baskets, and the Molotov cocktail became the accompanying drink to pair with them.

Hard enamel metal pin with translucent "liquid" fill. Pin measures about 1.5" and comes with two black rubber clutch.
