*DESCRIPTION: Some of my favorite ART manufacturer pieces use genuine *Bakelite & are featured in many vintage costume jewelry reference books.
This Art signed, statement-making brooch features five mustard green, End-of-the-Day, Bakelite paisley pieces.
The pin's center contains a beautiful, translucent, faceted, round orchid crystal, ~18-20 mm.
The pin is set open backed into a texturized bezel.
The gold-tone metal has an antique finish.
The pin's reverse is beautifully texturized, too.

The genuine Bakelite bangle has a unique End-of-the-Day pattern.
It has swirls of mustard green, toffee coloring all on a foundation of pretty moss green.

This bangle will compliment the pin well.

Great pair with wonderful weight, size, & presence.
