Bakelite Cameo with Reverse Carved Lucite Brooch
This vintage brooch pin is a real beauty and a book piece too!
Black bakelite oval cameo is very detailed showing a lady with elaborate hairstyle, headpiece and wearing a necklace. She's mounted on a beveled clear lucite rectangle which is reverse carved at the corners with a very art deco ray pattern. Perhaps this is a mourning brooch.
Except for the slight variation of this hand carved pattern, it's identical to one shown on page 73 of Leigh Leshner's book "Collecting Art Plastic Jewelry."
It measures 2 1/2" tall by 2 1/8" wide. Working C clasp pin on back. In excellent condition with only a few very light surface scratches on the back.
Just fabulous!
