This is a moulded celluloid flower brooch in creamy colors on a medium shade wood oval base. Attached to the varnished wood base is a basket of flowers with great detail and three dimensional relief. This lovely pin will take you back to yesteryear. This basket design is shown on page 46 (without the wood backing) of "20th Century Plastic Jewelry" by Roseann Ettinger with a 2007 value of $35-85.00
Measurements: The pin is 2.75 inches wide and a bit over 1.75 inches tall. (7.2 cm by 4.6 cm).
Condition: The brooch is in good vintage condition - with a couple very small nicks to the coating of the flower that are only noticeable with a loupe. The flower basket itself seems just a smidge off the horizontal - check the photographs to evaluate condition.
Marks: This is an unsigned beauty. These pins were popular in the 1940's.
