Carved strawberries Bakelite fruit pin Bakelite book piece
* This huge Bakelite carved strawberries fruit pin is a real stunner! All of the berries have lightly carved "seeds" and the tops have carved leaves that are painted a bright green. The strawberries hang on a celluloid chain with celluloid leaves from a nicely carved glossy brown branch. Bakelite fruit pins in this condition are hard to find and are true statement pieces.
* This amazing Bakelite brooch measures 3" wide and 4" long (from the top of the branch to the bottom of the lowest strawberry). Each strawberry measures (at midpoint) 7/8" in diameter and is 1 1/8" long. The branch measures 2 1/4" long.
* This fun pin is in excellent vintage condition, with no chips, cracks or obvious scratches. The red celluloid chain is intact, with no breaks and so are the celluloid leaves. The pin back is molded into the Bakelite and is firmly attached. The pin itself is slightly bent, as can be seen in the last photo.
All items are shipped in a gift box unless otherwise noted.
All bakelite is tested using a variety of methods. These include simichrome polish, hot water (smell test), tapping bangles together for the appropriate sound, and checking for mold lines and other discrepancies.
