Luscious 1930s Amber Bakelite and Wood Pear Pin Brooch. The sportiest material combination , this beautifully executed wood and bakelite brooch pin is highly collectible for so many reasons! Highly whimsical too! Approximately 2" inches tall and 1.25" wide. The rear element is wood, and the amber bakelite pear is laminated directly onto the back wood plaque, creating a sandwich of the two materials. 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. Hints of carved detail on both the wood and bakelite adds dimension. . A bit of bakelite forms a stem and adds another level of detailed artisanship. Guaranteed 1930s bakelite jewelry. My book The Bakelite Collection has lots of wood and bakelite jewelry pictured, as well as lots of all kinds of the best bakelite! Write with questions on how to order it. Excellent vintage quality. Excellent vintage condition with original pinback. Love this pear it is so sensuous!
