This vintage brooch has a very unusual pattern featuring stylized glossy low-relief flowers on a matte textured background. The flowers are framed by a squiggle- shaped piercing around the outer edges. The pin is a book piece and can be found on page 96 of the book by Lyn Tortoriello & Deborah Lyons `Bakelite Jewelry The Art of the Carver'.
This pin measures 1 3/4" wide x 3 3/4" long. It is nicely carved and the design is beautifully done with a 5/16" thickness. The third picture shows this 's' like carving and the fourth picture shows its thickness. There is a 2 3/8" riveted pin back which is tight and secure. The pin is in excellent vintage condition. All items listed as Bakelite are vintage and tested to ensure its authenticity.
