Vintage 1930's bakelite desk minder in the form of a large clothespin. Made to hold monthly bills with a small plaque saying "Don't Forget" as in to pay them. I've used pictures in both natural light and indoors to give an idea as to color. The bakelite is a dark green with I would say orange swirling. The clip is 5 5/8" in length and 1 3/8" wide.
The last picture shows a deformation to the edge and the base shows wear commensurate with age. Cool piece not commonly found in this color. Using the hot water test an unpleasant odor came off this piece which is the formaldehyde smell bakelite gives off.
Thanks for stopping by. Always happy to combine items to save on shipping.
