RARE Antique Vintage Art Deco Charming BAKELITE Early Plastic Hand Painted Carved Elephant Vibrantly Painted Brooch Pin. JAZZ AGE.
A fabulous antique Art Deco carved Bakelite Elephant brooch pin. The elephant has jazzy hand-painted detail in gold, red and white. It’s a very rare and unusual piece – you will not find another like it! The brooch looks a little bit like wood, but it is definitely early plastic – the simichrome test in the photo proves that it is Bakelite. Also, there is a red colour beneath the black (please see final photo). There are signs of glue on the reverse, where the front leg must have must have broken in the distant past and been glued back. I don’t think this detracts in any way from its immense charm, and it is still very wearable, but it has been priced accordingly. It may not be suitable as a gift for this reason though.
The brooch fastens with a simple C catch, which is stamped ‘Czecho Slov’ on the reverse. This is likely to be a Czech component and does not necessarily mean that the brooch was made there.
Suitable for either a Lady or a Man.
EVERYTHING IS ALL ORIGINAL.
Measures approximately: 2.1″ x 1.25″ or 5.5cm x 3.2cm
A Really Delightful Piece, with issue mentioned above.
