Vintage 1940's Bakelite Heavy Carved Pin Yellow Ribbed Accordion Pleats Tested
Here is an original, 1930's-1940's vintage, heavily carved yellow bakelite pin. It measures 1-1/2" x 1" and tests positive for bakelite with Simichrome. It was old store stock, never used, and never sold. It was the only one of its kind in a large group of vintage jewelry and accessories that I purchased from a man who rescued them from the basement storage of a 1930's-40's New York City dress shop when the building was demolished about 30 years ago. The vintage metal findings were gone from being stored in a damp basement but the bakelite was in excellent condition. I added an adhesive pin back so I could wear it. You can see 3 empty openings where the pin back or buckle findings had been.
