Found this set online recently and was happy to get all these pieces from same collector - so the colors match! Stamped inside "Japan". Bracelet is .5" wide, ring 1" long in a tiny size 4.5, round pin 1.5", 2 dress clips 5/8"x1.75", screw back earrings 11/16". I love this color which is a nice salmon, prettiest in pic 2.
The best salmon colored French celluloid from 1940's looked like carved coral. These look like plastic - oh well - but I love this set. These motifs continued to be popular thru the 60's mainly made in Japan. Continued after the 60's - a little easier to detect because mold seams are visible and the carving isn't deep and intricate.
