It's a handful of old very carved celluloid berries. We think they're berries. Or some kind of fruit or leaves or tree hangings.

This large pin is made of solid celluloid. It's the type of material that was used during the Victorian era to make jewelry, dressing sets, pins, dolls and many other items. The first celluloid as a bulk material for forming objects was made in 1855 in Birmingham, England and was called Parkesine, after its inventor Alexander Parkes. The many forms of celluloid were popular into the Art Deco era when celluloid was replaced with the more colorful Bakelite and Catalin.

This neutral ivorytone celluloid was called Ivorine or 'French Ivory' and it replaced the use of more expensive and endangering animal products.

This pin measures 3 inches across by 3 1/4 inches high. The back has its original two-piece imbedded rollover clasp. The opening near the top allows this to be worn as a pendant too.

Excellent vintage condition. Circa 1915.
