This huge brooch is in a shiny black Bakelite with the original, often missing, brass tone chain set in the ridges around the perimeter. The best part is the wonderful profile of a woman carved with great precision and bolted to the front. With curly hair and a scarf and a wonderful expression on her Romanesque face. I've seen a few over the years and every time the face is slightly different. Surely a craftsman take on a standardized cameo. This one has attitude!
A large oval measuring 2 1/2" tall x 2" wide and almost 1" thick.
Clean shiny Bakelite with no damage at all. The original pin back with safety catch is heat sunk into the Bakelite and works perfectly.
