This early Bakelite pin was made to be worn as a scarf or lapel pin (like a stickpin) with no receiving clasp. These Bakelite pieces became very popular in the late 1920s / early 1930s because they were studded with clear rhinestones, often with Art Deco geometric shapes. The Bakelite was made thin like celluloid, so it was easier to shape into interesting forms.
This pin measures 2 inches long by 1 1/4 inches wide. There are age appropriate light scuffs to the surface. All the stones are intact.
Very good vintage condition. The photo showing this type of jewelry is from the 2003 book DK COLLECTOR'S GUIDES JUDITH MILLER COSTUME JEWELRY - Pages 160 - 161.
