Red Bakelite Brooch with Chrome
3" x 3/8"
Excellent (pin stem is slightly bent)
This red Bakelite brooch is crafted from a cylinder of red plastic (Bakelite or Galalith?) wrapped in chrome. This Machine Age design reminds me of the work of the German maker Jakob Bengel. Early plastics were often combined with other materials during the 1930s. This piece closes with a simple C-clasp.
