Offered is a wonderful and hard-to-find 20th century Bakelite pin. It is translucent applejuice Bakelite in the center with maroon Bakelite on the longer sides. The applejuice section is reverse carved with four flowers or buds and smaller leaves and stems. The flowers are reverse painted in deep poppy and yellow. The brooch, which is a pointed and domed oval, measures approximately 3.5" long x 1.5" wide. The thickness is approximately 3/8" and is generally in excellent condition. There are a couple of very faint scratches visible only in a raking light and these will easily polish out. The pin tests positive as Bakelite via the Simichrome test.
