A highly collectable early 1920's galaith bookmark with sterling silver mount & dangling pig charm.
The mount is stamped STERLING SILVER and the pig STER SIL.
The body of the bookmark is made from galaith (erinoid), a synthetic plastic made by the interaction of casein and formaldehyde. Like bakelite, a very collectable vintage material. Here it is an attractive mix of pink and beige, giving a marble like look.
The bookmark measures 4" from top of silver mount to base. Attached to this is a small amount of silver chain where the pig charm is attached. The charm is 2cm by 1.3cm. Bookmark is 0.75" wide (at widest point).
In good vintage condition; there is a small chip to lower left edge on both parts of bookmark; pig has a small remaining part of a broken off fixed ring to top of his back...images show all this clearly.
Please view all the images for clear, close up detail of item on offer and its condition.
Highly sought after.
