BAKELITE VICTORIAN REVIVAL BEAUTY ( Vintage Reverse Carved Bakelite & Celluloid Cameo Brooch ): This Vintage Bakelite and Celluloid Cameo Brooch proves that “everything old is new again”. (c. 1940) At the turn of the 19th Century, large Cameo Brooches that had been so popular with Victorians fell out of favor and dainty stone encrusted earrings, pendants and bracelets were all the fashion. In the 1930’s, Bakelite jewelry marked the returned of big, bold pieces. The ivory colored celluloid cameo lady is highly detailed with floral accents in her hair and around the neckline of her classical drapery gown. The cameo is set on a gorgeous Vintage Bakelite golden marbleized rootbeer circular pin. The edges have been reverse carved to reveal applejuice stripes. The riveted pin back has a C clasp closure. Elegant and chic, this timeless beauty will look at home on denim or lace. Condition: Excellent. No chips or cracks. A few fine scratches typical for its age. Size: 2 3/4" in diameter. Bakelite portion is 1/4" deep, plus Cameo it is 1/2” deep.
