Dragon Oriental Brooch, Carved Bakelite Oval in Brass, Mythology Sea Serpent Creatures, Textured Rectangle Sash Brooch

Like this item?

Add it to your favorites to revisit it later.


Fabulous vintage figural brooch has something for the mythology and dragon lovers, the Bakelite collectors, and the sash-brooch fans. This impressive and heavy piece is fashioned with a textured brass background and raised twin-dragon or sea-creature figurals flanking the carved domed Bakelite oval. The Bakelite is a burgundy wine color with a hue more towards the brown-reds, not the purple-blues. Very striking, symmetrical design, an eye-catcher. Measures 3-inches across and 1 5/8-inches high. Original pin-back, each end set into the brass, the Bakelite oval is affixed with a rivet, the pin-stem is secured with a rollover safety closure. Excellent vintage, no damage, wear or repairs front or back.

There are no words to describe how amazing this duette is in person! It is truly breathtaking to behold. Additionally, and more importantly, I had a most incredible shopping experience. The shop owner was very kind and courteous, and she went above and beyond to ensure an excellent buying experience, from start to finish. I look forward to returning to this store in the future, and I highly recommend shopping here. I guarantee you won't be disappointed!
