This old carved red Bakelite heart pin is a classic, circa 1940. Not only does the cherry red color swirl with love, but the heart overflows with darker red 'cherries' hanging from little cords.
The pin measures 2 1/8 inches across by 2 1/2 inch high with the dangles. It's 1/4 inch thick. The back has the original secure ~C~ clasp. There's some normal wear to the red little cords but the dangling beads cover that up pretty well. Pin is overall in excellent vintage condition.
(This pin is a less common variation of the Bakelite heart pins from the era. As shown on the 1941 Life Magazine in photo, the red Bakelite heart pin is captioned...'Red is Right'. It was then and it still is.) (Copy of photo included with pin upon request.)
