1930s Figural Bakelite Martha Sleeper Old Time Aviator Mr. Dog Brooch Pin. Approximately 2.5" tall by 1.75" wide. A slab of wood forms the base of this super rare and collectible whimsical pin, and then a layer of carved bakelite is laminated to the wood making a sandwich of the two materials. Lots of painted wild detail especially crazy Sleeper style eyes and an applied red bakelite ball nose, Much original paint makes this especially folksy and like many bakelite figural whimsies, it is a piece of wearable American 1930s folk art. Excellent vintage condition. A rare and special piece!
