This classic, Art Deco era, jade green bakelite brooch has a carved woman's face with an exotic look – high forehead, narrow long nose, lush lips and closed eyes with a curvy, loopy "crown" or headdress in silver metal. Some might call it a mask or headdress, too. She also has a wide silver choker at her neck and brass hoop earrings. Beautifully carved in spinach bakelite; tested positive for bakelite with simichrome. Measures 2 3/8" inches tall X 1 5/8" inches wide. Excellent condition; only flaw is straight pin on back is very slightly bent near the pin-point end.
