1930s RED Bakelite Suspended Heart from Bar Pin Brooch

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

A classic in the bakelite world, this dangling heart pin in brilliant red sums up all the color, verve and wit of 1930s bakelite jewelry. An approximate 1.25" wide rectangular slightly domed bar pin suspends the cookie like chunky heart by 3 reddish pink cellulose acetate loops, for a flat and wearable position for the whimsical articulated pin. As the wearer, moves, the dangling heart moves gently as well! The heart is almost 2.25" long and wide, and makes for a brooch over 4" long in totality. The original pinback is extant and functions perfectly. Guaranteed all 1930s American Bakelite.
