Measures 2-5/8" by 1-1/2" at widest point. Guaranteed to be genuine vintage 1930s 40s Bakelite, not a reproduction or re-make from old parts. Excellent vintage condition with fine light wear and some tarnish to metal section as shown - see my photos for closeups. Please read my terms and'fine print' below.
I've been in the vintage/collectible business for over 35 years. I'm on the list of advisers for both the second and third editions of Warman's Jewelry by the late great Christie Romero. I was a founding member for the online discussion group Silver Forum and the Modern Silver website with Marbeth Schon. I was a contributing author for the traveling exhibition and accompanying book, "William Spratling, and the Mexican Silver Renaissance" edited by Penny Morrill. I'm a gemologist, and I have jewelry design and jewelry-making experience.
