1960s Soviet pin badges

Was so thrilled to find these stunning psychedelic pin badges from the USSR on a recent trip back to Tallinn, Estonia.  Found at a Russian market there, the colour schemes and design look so contemporary. I love the folk tale feel to them too, coming from a region so rich in these sorts of stories.  These probably date to the 1960s or 70s.

Check out my earlier post on other Soviet pin badge designs from a previous visit to Russian markets in the city, and also my studio visit with Estonian illustrator Jurri Arrak whose 1970s illustration work has a similar aesthetic to these acid coloured beauties.
