Lucite with a light green tint and scalloped edges form the backdrop (bonnet) for a stylized copper lady’s head brooch. The facial features are in an African tribal-mask style with closed eyes. It was likely made by a California company named Elzac (El after Elliot and Zac after Zachary—the first names of the two company founders). The company was best known for its fashionable “pin-up” face brooches and whimsical animals. They used ceramic, metals, fabrics, feathers, celluloid and lucite in their creations. Owner Elliott Handler and his wife went on to help found the Mattel Toy Company™. Elzac was in business only a short time during WWII. This brooch measures 2 1/2” wide and 3” high. It is in very good condition with normal wear when the lucite is held up to a light.
