1930s Figural Bakelite Resin Washed Carved Bowling Ball and Bowling Pins Pin Brooch. A classic bakelite figural sports pin: The large resin washed bowling ball is pierced and has a multitude of gimp stemmed bowling pins cascading and dangling from the center of the ball. Note the carved finger holes for the bowler. The ball is over 1.2" in diameter and has the pinback, original and fully functional. The cream colored bowling pins each has a replaced renovated red gimp stem which displays the pin along with all the others, each individually stemmed with red gimp. Excellent renovated vintage condition. The length of the pin is almost tripled by the pins dangling...for a total of over 3" long.
