    Carved bakelite cowboy pin collectable book piece

    * This delightful bakelite cowboy brooch can be seen in any number of bakelite reference books and is often referred to as a gaucho pin, gaucho being Spanish for cowboy. The cowboy is carved from yellow bakelite that has been resin dyed to bring out the details. His shirt, belt and boots are painted in brightly colored red, green, brown and black enamel. There are 4 nail heads with carved and red painted "ties" that decorate the left leg of his pants. The wooden sombrero hides the cowboys face and has green, yellow and red painted decorations. This is one brightly colored hombre'.

    * This great bakelite pin measures 3" tall and 2" wide and is 1/4" thick. The hat itself is 7/8" in diameter, adding extra dimension to this piece.

    * This 1930's bakelite brooch is in very good to excellent vintage condition. There are no chips, cracks or obvious scratches in the bakelite itself. There is minimal paint loss to the body and the green paint around the edge of the sombrero shows some fading. The pin mechanism is original to the piece and is in good working condition.

    * Tests positive for bakelite using simichrome and hot water.

    These figural pins are hard to find, especially in this condition. This colorful cowboy will make a great addition to any bakelite lover's collection and will be shipped in a gift box

    I use a variety of colored backgrounds and editing techniques to try to match what I see with how the item displays on my computer. Please be aware that different computer monitors "see" color differently depending on the quality of their resolution and level of available color variation.

    All bakelite in this shop tests positive using simichrome and hot water. I also closely examine each piece to determine that the surface wear and patina are consistent with vintage bakelite.
