Blackamoor vintage Bakelite log native Dr Kill Bare necklace earring set rare original card.
The African native Bakelite series is not such an unusual find, but never have I seen an original card for one of the pieces. It says the witch doctor, Dr. Kill Bare, is a bone specialist, but also does love potions and snake oil to name a few! Strung on a black cording. I hadn't noticed this until I saw it sitting here in the light of the monitor that the card is glossy and the spotting at the top is rough, so it may wash off (we always leave cleaning to new owners).
The hook earrings, which measure 2.75 inches long, are tribal drummers with bones through their hair. Please be aware that one arm was broken off one of these and has been professionally liquid welded back in place (left earring on last photo, left side). I can't even see it, but need to state it for the record, and is being sold as is. This is a terrific Bakelite find for a collecting enthusiast. Circa 1955-1960. Price takes into account both the rarity of the card and the repair.
