On my souvenir display wall there are a number of cloisonne pins stuck randomly through other objects. When you assemble them all together it's an impressive collection, so I thought I would photograph them.

These things are small, generally less than an inch (2.54 cm) long. The photographs reveal a degree of detail that is sometimes ridiculous, like the "World Champion" on the Ritchey pin or the detail from the inch-long 1990 World Championship pin.

The best art is the Iditablike pins, so I'll start with those. The 1990 pin is spectacular.
