Vintage 1940s carved butterscotch Bakelite brooch depicts a swallow about to swoop from its perch on a leafy branch.

The elongated, bar pin shape of the brooch is matched perfectly to its subject, with the descending swallow, beak down and wings windswept, centered on the brooch/branch, and clusters of veined leaves to either side.

The long pin stem latches with a c-clasp closure.

Measures 3.5” across by 1.5” tall, with a depth of ¼”. The slim cut means that, despite its size, this brooch can be attached to lighter warm weather fabrics without making them sag; digital weight is a comfortable 10 grams.

Simichrome tested, this gracefully carved brooch is in good condition, with two scratches on one of the swallow’s wings (photo #2), and a slight bend to the pin stem. Priced accordingly.
