Carved Bakelite Brooch Prystal
In my opinion one of the best floral pins created by the expert carvers of the 1930s. Very bulbous with two extremely detailed flowers bolted to a leafy background. This one is extremely well carved. The best I've seen.
The brooch looks black until it hits the sunlight then a maroon shade appears. That's because originally the brooch was a translucent multi-colored Prystal. Hold it in front of a light bulb and the original colors of blue, green, and purple appear. Back out in normal light it again looks black. Beautiful!
This is a chunky brooch which makes it so charming. It measures a little over 3" long and is 1 1/4" tall and 1/2" thick!
The condition is excellent with no damage. The original pin back with safety catch is heat sunk into the Bakelite and is in perfect working order.
As always only vintage Bakelite is sold at Room 4 More. Never a fake or reworked piece.
