ON SALE! For your consideration is this incredibly rare bakelite pin. The sword itself is carved butterscotch bakelite with painted accents. The hilt is spinach bakelite with yellow marbling. The hilt has a wonderful fancy brass filigree overlay, brass bolts and red sections and carries a chain. Both the green and yellow have passed the simichrome test.The pin back is screwed into the piece. The brass has a warm patina and I believe this is circa 1940s. I see a small hole in the side of the red as shown as well as in the back but inspection with a high powered loupe show both of these to be uniform in shape and I believe they are part of the making. A must have for a bakelite collection.
The brooch measures 3 and 1/8 inches by 7/8 inches so it is a very nice size.
It is in excellent functioning condition.
