This is an exceptionally beautiful Vintage Bakelite Brooch – Bar Pin Style. The color of this circa 1930's to 40's Bakelite brooch is a "mottled" root beer color, translucent in appearance with swirls of darker colors throughout and very deeply carved.
This Art Deco style Bakelite brooch is quite long, measuring about 3 ¼ long and about ½ " wide. The carvings are in an abstract fashion on the diagonal and a deeply carved leaf is in the center. Both ends of this Bakelite bar pin are also on the diagonal, giving it a wonderful Art Deco appearance.
In all our years of collecting and dealing in Vintage Bakelite Jewelry, it is rare that we have come across such an outstanding Bakelite brooch in the much desired and sought after translucent root beer bakelite.
This fabulous and elegant Vintage Brooch looks equally stylish worn horizontally or vertically or on an angle. When worn on dark color clothing, the colors of this Root Beer Bakelite brooch will look even more striking.
The pin back on this vintage brooch is embedded into the pin and is original and works perfectly. Testing positive for bakelite, this Vintage Bakelite brooch is in perfect condition without any wear or imperfections.
