Lots of swirling root beer Bakelite makes a nice backdrop for a center circle of prong set rhinestones in gilded antiqued metal.
The pin measures 2 inches across and the Bakelite alone is 1/4 inch thick. The original ~C~ clasp still holds well. The back shows some normal surface scratches but there are no chips or cracks. The crystal clear rhinestones still have plenty of sparkle in them and most of the gilt is still intact.
Overall, it's a great original genuine tested Bakelite brooch in excellent vintage condition.
