Here is a wonderful butterscotch Bakelite hand-carved flower brooch from the 1930s.
Each carved piece was produced by a machinist who hand-held their pieces against lathes with carving spindles attached.
After the the prescribed cuts were made, each operator finished their pieces by hand, meaning no two are exactly alike.
Originally, bracelets and brooches were carved with with matching motifs--today, it's very challenging for a collector to find a bracelet and a brooch with matching patterns--Let the hunt begin!
The brooch pictured here measures 3" x 2", making it a bold statement piece for a blazer or coat.
The brooch is in very good vintage condition, with wear consistent with age.
