Circa 1930s, someone with a steady hand carved the word ~ MOTHER ~ out of butterscotch yellow Bakelite. It's a big MOTHER pendant measuring 3 1/4 inches across by 1 3/4 inches high.
From the back, this looks like it started out as a pin but someone preferred to wear it on a goldtone chain and at a slightly rakish angle.
There's a slight small dark spot on the letter 'M' and 'r' where the pin backs were once imbedded on the back.
What's unusual about this piece is its size and the fact that it was hand-carved with such precision. It's in very good condition with no cracks or chips. Genuine tested Bakelite.
If you love a mother (or are a mother) who loves Bakelite, this MOTHER pendant is for her (or you).
