Here is a rare and funky vintage Bakelite fruit pin brooch dating to the 1940’s. It measures about 3” wide by 3” high and is about 1” thick. Each piece of fruit is intricately hand carved and hanging from links on the celluloid chain along with 4 dangling plastic leaves. The pin has 6 different fruits an orange, apricot, peach, red cherry, strawberry and a pear. Everything is original to the piece and all the fruit, leaves and celluloid chains are attached with links to a 2” long dark green Bakelite bar pin. When the pin is worn the dangle fruits move and bounce giving the pin lots of movement and sway. It is in excellent vintage condition with no chips or cracks anywhere only one tiny pin head size spot on the pear and some tiny paint lose to the green leaves on the strawberry visible under magnification and all being mentioned to be accurate. A great rare Bakelite collectible and guaranteed original American Bakelite.
