This is a terrific hard to find vintage Bakelite brooch which is just adorable. Created from a smooth red bakelite layer and carved wood, is a rooster and his shadow, (or two roosters hanging out) depending on the viewer. Both birds have brass stud eyes.
The brooch is 3" wide and 2" high. It is in excellent condition with 1/4" rough edge on the back. Most likely happened during creation. There is a two part pin clasp on the back. (In the picture, the wooden rooster looks like there is a crack in his leg, but it's not a crack. It is a carved area between the two legs; the camera lightened it to make it look that way)
This brooch can be found on Page 117 in Karima Parry's book "Bakelite Pins".
Thanks for looking!
