This vintage original marbled green bakelite musical instrument brooch has a very long neck. Not sure what type of stringed instrument it is, perhaps some kind of lute? T he frets and sound hole are carved, and the hole is painted black.
The strings are plastic coated cord and attached to metal pins. The one piece pin back is riveted to both the bakelite and lucite parts.The one piece pin back is riveted on. 3/4 wide x 4 7/8 high x 5/16 deep. Pin back has some rust and probably originally had a safety catch. We DO NOT make exceptions to this rule. We would be happy to try to answer them.
