    3 sweet carved .75" bakelite pins from around 1930's? I've seen some on ebay recently in a similar flower motif theme and same size sold one at a time but no history was given. These are very precious to me - gift from old boyfriend. They were his grandmother's pins. I'm the 2nd owner. These are the only painted bakelite items I have: first one a bouquet of delightful colors, 2nd pictures shows ladybug and mushroom.

    Because of their size they must have been cheap dime-store items. Would appreciate any comments.

      Thank you phil - yes it was a great gift. Altho I haven't been in touch w/him for 15 years - if he has a daughter I'll be sure she gets these from me one day.

      So sweet! I adore the mushroom! I would wear it all the time it was mine.
      Their back doesnt look that old I must say...the metal looks so crispy and new. I bet the grandmother didnt really wear them or she must have taken good care about them.

      Thanks Newtimes for your love and comments! I don't think she wore them either. Maybe she was already too old in the 1930's ....(let's see she would have been about late 20's - no not too old!). Aren't they sweet? My favorite is the little bouquet. I've worn them.

      Wow I would not have noticed these were bakelite if I had seen them on ebay. It looks like wood. Wonderful bakelite pieces?
    9. valentino97 valentino97, 11 months ago
      Yes Elisabeth, bakelite. An old boyfriend's Grandmother had them. I really love these sweet little guys. Every now and then I see one online. Thanks XOXO

      These are wonderful Mary!
      And so smart that you kept them!
      I had a lovely ring from a boyfriend in high school, traded it for a turquoise bracelet. (Sigh)

      Eileen - I've traded some treasures which I regret, big Sigh too! Aren't these so sweet? His grandmother never ventured much further than Falls City, NE. I imagine her finding these at a dime store or maybe they were a gift. Very special. Her grandson (my ex) asked for the pearl necklace and a wonderful green Czech glass brooch - and I gave those back to him with no issue. But, he didn't ask about these little treasures..LOL.
