This week's ebay purchase: 4 wonderful (great-priced) carved bakelite brooches ranging from 2"- 3". Yellow is hard to photograph! The first pin is same as the red one I posted awhile back, but I like the shortest and oval most. The seller had 21 more - all same color. She just said they all came from the same estate, but had no other information. Sad! I would like to know why someone would collect all the same color bakelite pins. Who would do that? :-)
Pic 2 shows embedded hardware. Pic 3 is a better exposure of the curved pin. And the last picture is two I've had for a long time: a beautiful carved orchid flower clip and a round pin to be worn with the short bar because they look good together!
These were all originally white. The first one looks semi-translucent. It might have been a pale pastel...dirty snow or even a light apricot hue. I think it's the newest - 1950's. The others are from the 30's or 40's.
Well, this should do it for yellow.....
