3 sweet carved .75" bakelite pins from around 1930's? I've seen some on ebay recently in a similar flower motif theme and same size sold one at a time but no history was given. These are very precious to me - gift from old boyfriend. They were his grandmother's pins. I'm the 2nd owner. These are the only painted bakelite items I have: first one a bouquet of delightful colors, 2nd pictures shows ladybug and mushroom.

Because of their size they must have been cheap dime-store items. Would appreciate any comments.

    Thank you phil - yes it was a great gift. Altho I haven't been in touch w/him for 15 years - if he has a daughter I'll be sure she gets these from me one day.

    So sweet! I adore the mushroom! I would wear it all the time it was mine.
    Their back doesnt look that old I must say...the metal looks so crispy and new. I bet the grandmother didnt really wear them or she must have taken good care about them.

    Thanks Newtimes for your love and comments! I don't think she wore them either. Maybe she was already too old in the 1930's ....(let's see she would have been about late 20's - no not too old!). Aren't they sweet? My favorite is the little bouquet. I've worn them.
