Vintage 40s Carved Amber Bakelite Hand Tussie Mussie Pin Brooch

Vintage 1940s amber bakelite hand pin or brooch evokes Victorian hand jewelry with its curving, elongated fingers, though the long nails tipping them place the piece clearly in the mid-twentieth century. A frilly, carved cuff sits at the "wrist".

Riveted silvertone pinstem has a safety clasp. A slanting cylinder has been drilled beneath the base of the fingers; I am uncertain why, but guess that the brooch is meant to be akin to a Victorian tussie mussie, with the slot there to accommodate the stem of a bud or posy.

Measuring 3" across by 1 1/8" high, the brooch has been Simichrome-tested and is in excellent condition.
