This very Rare and Unique Bakelite brooch is every Collector's dream! It is the "perfect game" of Vintage "early plastic" pins! The rich Rootbeer translucent Bakelite shines and draws attention. This is conversation piece that definitely makes a "statement!" The level of detail and craftsmanship is gorgeous and really special - it is an articulated, highly collectible Book Piece.
The main "body" of the brooch consists of two crisscrossed bowling pins - there are tiny metal linked chains that dangle from them showcasing four more pins which surround the "star" of the show - the bowling ball, complete with tiny finger holes! I promise you won't get a gutter when you wear this pin; you will only garner compliments galore!
This historic Bakelite brooch is in excellent Vintage condition - all of the hardware and pin back are Original; the Bakelite is without scratches, chips or damage. It has been lovingly and carefully maintained.
It measures - 2" across, the bowling pin "charms" are approximately 1" tall, the bowling ball is 3/4" - this brooch is three-dimensional. The pins and bowling ball are miniature replicas of the "real" thing.
I guarantee and test all of my Bakelite pieces/collection. I want my Clients to feel confident in their purchases and trust they have invested in a true/authentic/genuine Vintage Bakelite item. I have included photos to provide a better "picture" of condition, color wear and testing results.
