THIS UNUSUAL AND RARE VINTAGE CARVED BAKELITE PIN CONSISTS OF A GREEN FLAMINGO WADING IN GRASSES AND ATTACHED TO IT IS AN APPLE JUICE PIECE OF BAKELITE AS A BACKING FOR CONTRAST. THE PIN MEASURES 2 1/2" BY 2 1/4" AND IS QUIET SPECTACULAR. THE CONDITION IS GOOD BUT THERE IS A CRACK IN THE BIRDS FRONT FOOT AND CONTINUES TO THE BLADE OF GRASS IN FRONT OF THE LEG, BARELY NOTICEABLE (SEE LAST PHOTO).
THIS AREA IS VERY STURDY SINCE IT HAS THE RIVETED BACKING ATTACHED FOR SUPPORT. I HAVE WORN THIS MANY TIMES WITH NO ISSUES.
BOTH PIECES TEST POSITIVE FOR BAKELITE. BE SURE TO CHECK OUT MY OTHER AUCTIONS FOR MORE BAKELITE JEWELRY.
