Developed in the 1930s, the clear acrylic plastic branded as Lucite became a wildly popular for material for costume jewelry starting in the 1950s. Less expensive to produce than Bakelite, Galalith, and Catalin and more chemically stable than celluloid, Lucite made these earlier jewelry plastics obsolete.

In its pure form, Lucite is translucent, resembling glass or rock crystal, but it can be dyed in a wide range of colors and opacity, making it the perfect material for bold blocks of Mid-century Modern colors. Hard, water-resistant, and lightweight, Lucite can be carved and polished, and it is easy to wear.

This lovely white MOP Lucite brooch, circa 1950's, is in the design of a palm tree. What better way than to escape the stress of daily life and imagine your own private tropical island paradise than to wear this unique and beautiful "palm tree" brooch. The piece measures 2 3/4" in length, 2" in width and has a safety clasp mechanism. There are no damages, near mint condition.
