This celluloid pin features a shade of green that is currently quite contemporary again. The mound of green "flowers" resembles the popular succulent Rosette plants or perhaps the green Lotus plant. The early plastic pin is realistically shaded with a light wine color. The flower shapes with curling petals remain in very good condition.
The flowers were attached to a clear resin back with a locking clasp. The resin back has a slight yellow tinge though it is clear. The pin measures 2" long x 1"wide x 1/2" tall.
A nice example of the early plastic celluloid jewelry. As you can see in the photos, many of the petals have uneven edges and it is difficult to know which were made that way and which were not. There appears that there may be part of a petal missing on the far right (top flower) and /or a chipped petal on that flower as one of those petals has a straighter edge.
Gender: Female, Age Group: Adult, Color: Green, Size: 2" X 1" x 1/2"
