For sale here is a HUGE and gorgeous vintage 1930s hand carved Bakelite brooch pin with seven colorful fruit dangling from a large overdyed and carved leaf. The dangling fruit include a peach, apple, cherry, plum, banana, orange, and an apricot. Guaranteed to be genuine vintage 1930s 40s Bakelite, not a reproduction or remake from old parts.
The cords look like they may have been replaced at some time. Measures 4" by 2" wide. Excellent vintage condition with fine light wear as shown - see my photos for close-ups. Please read my terms and'fine print' below. I've been in the vintage/collectible business for over 35 years.
