    Hat pins!!!
    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.
