For sale here is a BIG vintage 1930s 40s handmade carved Bakelite fruit Pear design brooch pin. Guaranteed to be genuine vintage 1930s 40s Bakelite, not a reproduction! There is a small pinhole near the leaf at top of the pin. I'm not sure if it used to have another leaf, or if someone was over-zealous in testing this pin. In any case, it's not at all noticeable when worn.
