“Bakelite Pins” Book Piece--Bakelite Chick w Wood Head Brooch

“Bakelite Pins” Book Piece--Bakelite Chick w Wood Head Brooch

This offering is for a real cutie--A baby chick Bakelite pin with a large wood head and painted eye. The body is of green Bakelite, with carved details. It is translucent when held to light. It was carved in such a way that the details are a honey amber color. The chick’s ear and carved bill have the same colored Bakelite, with details. The head is made of wood, with a heavy grain. There is a large carved eye on the sweet little Chick’s head. An identical pin may be seen in Karima Parry’s reference, “Bakelite Pins”, on p. 116. It is shown with butterscotch colored Bakelite. It’s value (2001) was $125-150. The pin is in excellent vintage condition. Aside from two scratches on the body (that show when held to the side), the Bakelite is in excellent condition, as is the wood head. The original pinback is embedded. The pin is slightly bent, but it functions well, with its roll over locking clasp. Size: 2 ¼” wide (bill to tail feather); 1 7/8” high. A neat addition for a collection of early Bakelite figural pins. This little chick needs a new home--yours? As always, this offering is guaranteed to please.

I will be listing many old, original Bakelite pieces of jewelry in the weeks to come. They include Martha Sleeper and many other figural pins, necklaces, bracelets and some neat vanity items. So, we invite you to stop in frequently to check out “what’s new.”

Shipping by First Class Mail, with delivery confirmation. Insurance is optional, but recommended.

International shipping by First Class International Mail, with the option of having the package Registered for an additional USPS fee of $11.50.

If you have any questions, please contact me. Thank you for shopping with us and for your interest in this offering.
