For your consideration - a stunning Bakelite two color laminated cameo brooch. Portrayed in the design is a classical bust of a woman done in a white hard plastic (not Bakelite). Bakelite colors are shiny black and golden yellow. The pin measures 1 7/8s x 1 3/8s and closes with its original embedded rollover clasp (a sign of higher quality for the time period). It was probably sold in a fine department store sometime in the 1930s or 1940s (it is really hard to date some Bakelite).

This is the only Bakelite cameo in my collection and I'm thrilled to see it go to another home. I have loved it well and worn it many times. It especially pops on a LBD! It does have some discoloration as shown in the picture, but it doesn't show when worn. I have taken that into account in the price.

Thank you for dropping by Refined Retro!
