Bakelite jewelry bakelite brooch bakelite pin
* This is a fun and unusual early bakelite pin in the shape of a Tyrolean hat, complete with its feather adornment. The feather is lightly carved while the rest of the carving adds dimension to an otherwise flat pin. The color is a rich subtly marbled butterscotch. I see remnants of green enamel paint on the outline of the feather and hatband and potentially some red on the feather itself.
* At the brim, this pin is 2 1/2" wide and stands 2" tall and measures 3/8" thick. There are two holes on the back that I believe held the original pin mechanism. The current pin mechanism is set into the bakelite, but I believe it had been glued into two new drilled holes, rather than heat set.
* Overall this interesting Art Deco pin is very glossy and in very good vintage condition. There are no cracks or visible scratches but there are a couple of tiny fleabites on the edge of the pin, but these do not detract from its appearance.
* Tests positive for bakelite using simichrome and hot water.
