Can someone please tell me what these are? I think they are hat pins? Maybe Bakelight?

    These may be bakelite, there are many pages on the net with guides on how to test for bakelite, maybe give one a try.

    These are actually called "hat ornaments" and were prevalent from the 1920s through the 1940s. By the 1940s, they were also used on ladies suit lapels.
