      Lovely piece! I am just a bit confused: Is it marked Germany or W. Germany? I cannot read the mark. If it is marked W (est) Germany, it must be from around 1949 to around 1990. Basted on the style, I would say closer to 1949 than the later date. It does remind me a bit of Carmen Miranda:)

      Correction: based not basted. It's late:)

      Thank you AirFresh for you comment, it does look real, the seller listed it as plastic fruit. What a wonderful surprise to find this in the box.
    4. RichmondLori RichmondLori, 2 months ago
      freiheit - the mark is a circle and it appears to have the W(est) after : GERMANY W.
      I will try to get a better image and post for you to review - you might read it different. thanks for the interest. Lori

      Lori, I hate to do this but your brooch is not "bakelite era" or "bakelite" or fine jewelry as you have posted here on CW. Those are terms I've seen so often from sellers online trying to convince buyers. If you search online you'll see a lot of these fruit beads aren't even Lucite. This is a fun plastic fruit wreathe pin from the 70's - which by the way is a great example - why not celebrate it that way?!

      Mary. thanks for the insight. I thought the fruit was too new. appreciate your help.

      I really like the colors on this brooch.
    8. valentino97 valentino97, 2 months ago
      Lori, you should delete from fine jewelry. It isn't in that category. I know a lot about old plastic. I am a bit surprised that you don't look at the items I've posted to see what I know and have collected for 40 years and maybe gain some knowledge.

      If anyone knows bakelite, celluloid, lucite, etc. it’s Mary!
      But Mary, the seller listed it as “plastic fruit”, so seller was honest.
      Lori, it takes years to learn what Mary knows, so don’t feel too bad.
      It looks very Carmen Meranda, like Gudrun said, wear it and have fun!

      Thank you all for the wonderful feedback, information and comment. Much Appreciated!

      Mary, I agree this is in the wrong category - however CW changed my original posting - I will reassign it. Thanks Lori

      I did try to switch it from fine jewelry ! I did. Lori

      You can edit your item and pick Fine or Costume if you have time.
    13. RichmondLori RichmondLori, 2 months ago
      Mary, I did edit this piece and it still shows fine jewelry.
    14. Ms.CrystalShip Ms.CrystalShip, 2 months ago
      Lori, it’s ok!
      For the longest time, I couldn’t love on anything!
      CW site is not perfect, things happen, like when can we edit our comments!!!!!
      ( if you want it removed from fine, try deleting it maybe. ( but not here in costume)
