    Now, here is a classic. One of the first Art Deco pieces I bought and also one of my favorites. The cherries and log are made of bakelite. The stems show signs of wear and I actually don't know what I could do to fix them up, but this pin's still nice for its age...

      Pretty - yes a classic. I don't think you can do anything to those stems. See how this pin back looks different from your Pierot items? I hope you wear it!

      Thanks again! Indeed, here the clasp was heat-mounted.
      Sure, I do wear it: it's always a success! ;)

      I just saw this pin on Rubylane - $145 asking price.

      It is three times as much as what I paid for it on Ebay a few years ago!
