This is a FABULOUS Intricately Molded Celluloid brooch. C.1930 Art Deco accessory is 3 Dimensional, High Relief and FINELY Detailed. Overall it is an ivory color with Vibrant colored 'highlights' ~ tints. This is an early plastic pin from Japan (possibly WWII era) others I have owned were stamped "Japan" or "Occupied Japan" in blue/red lettering - I almost missed the Mark ( : here. 'JAPAN' is stamped into the embedded metal clasp. I have never had this particular design in Vintage Celluloid jewelry... instead of flowers in a woven wicker basket - it is FRUIT possibly with a couple vegetables mixed in. There are Grapes, Bananas, Strawberries, Raspberries, Apples and... also 2 different types of leaves
The woven willow basket is bubblegum pink. The berries have deep pink color, pale purple on the grapes, green on the leaves and a hint of pale yellow on the bananas. It is direct from the estate of a 90+ Year Old woman and I don't think it had ever been worn. It was a tad dusty so I gently brushed & washed it off and is in WONDERFUL VIBRANT CONDITION! Shiny Finish (NOT dried out) - I see NO NICKS, CHIPS, CRACKS, REPAIRS or Excessive Wear. MEASURES a Max. of ~ 2 1/4 x 1 3/4 Inches - Retains ORIGINAL FULLY Functional Silver Metal embedded "Hardware" - Broad 'C' Clasp, Pin Stem & Hinge.
Would make a GREAT Gift or Addition to your Vintage clothing ~ fashion accessory, antique pin, plastic ~ lucite, celluloid, bakelite or harvest jewelry collection!
