Rare to get a pair...
Sold for bakelite, but they are blonde carved turtle shell!
Condition is very nice, once removed grime and stickers traces... stem was a little rusted too.
Ornate shell is 10cm long, total length is 17cm.
I love the braided like carving and the glow :-)
Short stems are typical of art deco/1920 era, to wear on flapper's cloche hat.
The ball one (2.3cm) is butterscotch amber, earlier with 20 cm length.
