Wild 1930s Black and Cream Bakelite Deity Mask Face Pin Brooch. The 1930s was an era fascinated with new discoveries all over the world about history's ancient past. Tutankhamen and the like! This brooch depicts a mask like face, pre-Columbian, Egyptian Alien?! Approximately 2" in diameter and comprised of a solid black slab cookie of bakelite with a 3-d sculptural exotic mask face depicting a deity or anthropomorphic face. Very intricately carved and dimensionally sculptural. The face is grometted to the slab, the pins visible on the rear of the brooch. Exotic to the max! Original pinback is present and functions perfectly. This isn't an esthetic for everyone, but for those who love the unusual it certainly fits the bill. Excellent vintage condition. My book The Bakelite Collection has many examples of differing mask type images like this one. Write with questions on how to order it.
