Vintage bakelite cicada clip. 1930's
This fella has such a great patina, a rich, deep green with yellow oxidation! The carving is fabulous, the clip is nice and strong. Excellent condition, please excuse the dust in the pictures.
The cicada makes a great subject for art and jewelry for thousands of years. This one is a bit over 2" long. He will make quite a statement on the lapel of your coat or jacket.
