1930s Art Deco Butterscotch Bakelite and Wood Pivoting Ear DOG Pin Brooch. Among the most novel and whimsical variety of bakelite brooches, the pivoting element pin has motion, articulation and uniqueness in spades. this example, an all wood dog head, has a carved black bakelite ear element set on a pin grommet which allows it to swing back and forth with each step the wearer takes. The energy of the step is transferred through the body and allows the free swinging pivoting element to move with that transferred energy. Over 2" wide and over 2" tall, and rather chunky, the brooch has its original pinback, it functions perfectly, and the piece is in excellent vintage condition. Yellow clear glass painted eyeball . My book The Bakelite Collection has many examples of pivoting elements and articulated element bakelite figural brooches. Write with questions on how to order it.
