In all our many years of collecting Bakelite, we've never seen this pin. We've had greyhound dog pins made of Bakelite but never one that was covered with a fur coat.
The Bakelite is thick yellow, cut in the shape of a racing greyhound dog. The dog has a glass eye and a corded brass collar.
Pin measures 4 inches long by 1 1/8 inches high. The back has the original two-piece inbedded rollover clasp.
The fur (not sure if faux or real) is glued to the surface of the Bakelite. There are some signs of wear/adhesive at fur edges, a little gap under the dog where something was glued in to maybe hold the fur in place.
While not perfect, this is a rare and unusual old Bakelite pin. Tested for Bakelite. Circa 1930s.
