This old black cameo pin looks so Victorian that it had us wondering. But we tested the black back piece which does seem to be genuine Bakelite (though black Bakelite is always hard to test). Our conclusion is that this pin is circa 1930 with a very Victorian sensibility.
The cameo lady profile is made of molded resin. She has a lovely profile and a very detailed hairdo.
The pin's edge is beveled. It measures 1 3/8 by 1 3/4 inches. It's 1/4 inch thick (without clasp). The back has the original old-style brass ~C~ clasp. The pin is in excellent vintage condition.
