Vintage Hand Carved Bakelite Flamingo Pin Laminated on Leather

I have been asked to represent an impressive Bakelite collection for sale. This collection spans 30 years and includes many one-of-a-kind pieces as well as rare, flawless items that represent the bygone era of Bakelite Jewelry.

All pieces are 100% authentic. I will be adding several new pieces each week. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact me. I will be describing colors as closely as I can using various published books on Bakelite Jewelry and Bangles. Here is a rare vintage Bakelite pin of a Flamingo.

The body of the flamingo is carved Bakelite and it is laminated on to carved leather for the legs and head. Very unusual to see leather used for a brooch or pin. This is a very nice piece! This piece is published in several books including "Bakelite Jewelry" by Donna Wassertrom & Leslie Pina on page 122 and "The Best of Bakelite and Other Plastic Jewelry" by Dee Battle and Alayne Lesser on page 134.
