Wonderful pair of vintage Bakelite ornaments whose form closely resembles scarabs. The carved Bakelite is a luscious shade of amber and accented by a double row of marcasites. The backs of these ornaments have four prongs which would have attached them to something: a belt, shoes, sash, purse frame, hat band? They would be a wonderful addition to a bakelite collection or made into a piece of jewelry or attached to a piece of clothing.
Each ornament is 1-7/8" long x 1-1/16" wide. They are in very good vintage condition with a few minor scratches to the Bakelite, a few scratches and dents in the white metal backing, and one missing marcasite.
