This pin dates from the 1940's; during this decade, lucite replaced bakelite as the plastic of choice for jewelry and accessories. This pin is clear lucite with reverse carving accenting this parrot or parakeet's head, breast, and tail. The bill has been painted yellow on the back, and the tail has green accenting the carving. There is a raised and painted eye on the front surface that is black and red. The bird's wing is glued to the top and is made of carved and polished wood. This handsome parrot measures 3 7/8" X 1 1/4" X 1/2" thick. This fun vintage pin is in excellent original condition.
