Rare and Exotic 1930s Green Bakelite and Wood Sunflower Pin Brooch. This pin has an elegant construction design, the green bakelite slab which forms the base of this pin has a wooden sunflower beautifully carved laminated directly onto it, and then a central carved root beer cross hatched domed center floral blossom...creating a combination of green, natural wood and root beer--all combined! All these wood and bakelite pins utilize subtly different methods of combining these 2 differing materials.. The pin is large- approximately 3.5" wide and 2.25" tall. For me, wood adds a super sporty quality to these pieces, whimsical and happy. Like a woody station wagon with wood paneled sides! Intricate workmanship and realistic detail as well as a 'folksiness" make this a really great work of bakelite jewelry art with. Excellent vintage condition. Autumnal moody and chic!
