Two geometric bakelite pins recently available on ebay. I have 2 others from the same seller (see link below if you are interested
Wonderful machine carved applejuice screw-end jabot or hat pins from the 1940's or 50's. The ebay seller told me he bought out a bakelite collection 30 years ago from a neighboring NY antique store.
I paid a little more for these 2 but couldn't let them go to someone who didn't have the other 2 in the collection. Since I bought the first pair I've searched online and still can't find examples like these 4. I think they were handmade in a small NYC shop. I am very happy to have these 4 together!
It's hard to take a good picture capturing applejuice which originally was clear bakelite.
