    Hi everyone!
    Not sure what this is, other than the obvious broach made by glueing a pin on the back of a very detailed piece of ??? My guess is bone? It is as found as I'd forgotten about it being in my purse from my thrift store purchase a few days ago. I think I'll remove the pin and find another use for it. After I wash it of course.
    Thank for any info or guesses you have as to what it's made of. Tapping it says it's not hollow, don't sound like plastic either....I just don't know. And not being at home I'm without my measuring tape. But it's approx 2 1/4" tall x 1 3/4" wide, and I'd guess over a 1/2" thick.
    Thanks for looking!

      Sweet nativity scene! The holes in the back are the indicator of resin.
