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. 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!
