This vintage carved Bakelite brooch pin has a riding crop "bar pin" from which hangs a horse head. The Bakelite is overdyed red with smooth gradation to highlight different areas and add shadow to others.
The bar is 3" wide, total height is 1 7/8" and thickness of the bar is about 1/4". The horse has an applied yellow celluloid eye and gold luster on the bridle (mostly intact but with some wear). Brass hardware connects the horse head to the crop.
The cotton swabs show the tests : the reddish one was used on the overdyed area and the yellow one on the golden caramel area.
The pin is secured with two bolt pins to the back of the bar and has a safety roller clasp. Overall condition is very fine with no breaks, chips or scratches.
