chain harness chameleons

Hello I started a thead a couple of moths ago: 1950's cruel trend

someone before me has as well: Chameleons and the pet trade history ..

Im am still on the look out for family photos, where women (or anyone) considered the trend of wearing live chameleons on theri sweaters with or without a chain pin.

So I have done a lot of reaserch since my last post, I have found so much written, but still not any luck with a picture of this!! If anyone has any pictures of this, some one selling them, wearing them ANYTHING!! It would be amazing help!!

(Even a direction where you think I could find this information)

talk your heads off!

thank you so much

Not sure about old world chameleons, but I know back in the day (50's 60's) you could get anoles (commonly called chameleons) at the Texas State Fair. They sold them on strings and I suppose you could wear them around as an accessory.

Probably not what you're looking for, but that's the only think I've heard of.

I bought the anoles at fairs, as well as painted slider turtles measuring 2" across the shell at the fair. The turtles were boxed up in a Chinese food take out box, I still think of the turtles every time I see those boxes!

Sorry no pics, but it was common in the late 50's at fairs in the Northwest States at least.

No pix but my dad, (now 75, so probably in the 40's) said he bought them in Milwaukee as a kid and they would wear them on the shirt pocket on a little chain so they could go in and out. LOL
