An unusual Vintage Bakelite Brooch is presented with magnificent very deep carvings in a rich milk chocolate brown Bakelite complete with pierced areas!
Circa 1930’sa-40’s, this uniquely shaped vintage Bakelite brooch is quite large, measuring 3 inches in width and 1 ¼ inches wide at its widest portion. Because of its very Art Deco inspired domed surface and very deep carvings, there is a depth of ½ of an inch! At the center portion of this authentic vintage Bakelite brooch is a very, very deeply carved flower with explicit carved detailing. On either end of this vintage brooch, there are thumb print-like carvings, which truly enable the carved center flower stand out even more. There is an indented area in the center of the brooch, running from top to bottom. There is the addition of three round carved areas in a row on top of the brooch, strategically placed, where on could even put a chain through the outer two round carved areas, enabling one to wear this as a pendant! The warm rich milk chocolate Bakelite of this Bakelite brooch is truly sensational, showing off the carvings and workmanship. Held up to the light, there is a stunning translucent quality to this Bakelite brooch, adding to the elegance of it for sure. BE SURE TO SEE ALL PHOTOS
The pin back is a c-clasp and works perfectly. It is embedded into the Bakelite brooch and not glued. The patina is bright and shiny on the Bakelite pin and it tests positive for Bakelite. It is in mint condition and free of any damage whatsoever. It will look stunning worn at any angle, either horizontally, vertically or on an angle or even through a chain, as indicated above, because of the pierced areas!
