Vintage LG Bakelite HEART Pin Green w dangling cherries. Very rare to find this style with green Bakelite. Authentic and tested with simi chrome polish. Size approx 2.25 x 2.25 (does not include the dangling cherries in measurment).Bakelite is a general term for a cast Phenol Formaldehyde Resin (Phenolic Resin), manufactured under many brand names including Bakelite, Catalin and Faturan. Most phenolic resin jewelry was made between the two World Wars in the 20th century. In the early 1940s, factories turned their attention to manufacturing items for the war effort, and use of plastics for jewelry significantly decreased. By the early 1950s, Lucite, Plexiglas and other plastics had replaced phenolic resin, and for the most part, what we now think of as "Bakelite" ceased to be produced.
