Bakelite Story Rockets Demand

Kathy''s Bakelite Large Heart Pin

Do you know the name of this piece?

Yes bakelite (catalin)is beautiful… looks like candy… was mostly made between 1939 and 1946… can be tested to validate material, but does your beautiful bakelite have THE STORY? Stories like… The Philadelphia BraceletThe Life Magazine HeartThe Bullet RadioThe Noguchi Monitor. These are just a few of the pieces that have that added value of THE STORY. THE STORY promotes conversation, helps memory, and identifies uniqueness. Add this all together and you create a demand that is greater than the supply. Does supply and demand have an effect on price? The red heart is Kathy’s and it”s not for sale, but if you know THE STORY of this beauty… please, pretty please let us know.
