I'm not sure if this Bakelite brooch is American or European made but I do know it's spectacular. The Bakelite is a transparent cranberry. The photos show how the color changes as it gets closer to light. It looks cranberry in all light conditions.
The thick slab of Bakelite is perfectly carved into a fan pattern and held between two chrome ends. The original 2 pc. heat sunk pin back with safety catch is in place and works perfectly.
The brooch measures just shy of 3" at 2 7/8" x 2" tall. It is 1/2" thick!
There's no damage to this brooch at all. Some light reflections to the Bakelite and chrome may show something that isn't there. The chrome is not pitted and is bright and shiny.
