    My grandmother passed in 1999. I hadn't looked through her jewelry she'd left me for many years. This one is definitely one of my favorites. Is it made of celluloid? I know nothing about all this.

      A photo of the reverse might help. Lovely brooch! :)

      Hold it by the pin and put it against your cheek - is it warm or cold? Plastics warm up very quickly when exposed to skin temperature.

      Looks to be a resin, don't see any striations.

      It may be celluloid but could also be a different plastic - can't tell from the photos, sorry.
