    Very nice inexpensive online find: 2.5"x2" bakelite stick pins - also known as cloche, jabot or hat pins. The bakelite is about .25" thick and the wonderful machined grooves go half way through. I think they are from the 1940's. I don't think they were ever worn, so beautiful with no scratches. I had to buy them because they are a pair. No, not a dollar each like some of our CW friends' finds. I paid $10 each and am happy with that price. The original color was probably clear.

    Did I test them? Yes - when rubbed smells like chemicals (ether? or to me, what bakelite smells like) Simichrome also worked and last, which might be hard to see in my photos - carved bakelite will have a rough texture where the buffing tool can't polish so a tonal effect is created. No other plastic has this same fine unpolished threading.

    Anyway, if it had just been one - nah....but these 2 have been together a long time - hope you enjoy!

      Sweet! Love that double end system, and the juicy color :-)

      Yes lentilka - it's the carved bakelite that I really love. And more expensive too.

      Thanks Scott - I thought they were wonderful and happy to add them to my 2 sided plastic pin collection...

      Yes Kyra - me too! I don't have much juice or red for that matter.

      Thanks everyone for the loves.

      How do they open: threaded pin on the end or they just slide on/off?
    9. valentino97 valentino97, 5 years ago
      Davy, threaded pin on top piece.
