Bakelite Birds on Branch Pin Book Piece
Three perky bakelite birds sit atop a wooden branch in this vintage 1940's brooch. Their tails are loops of plastic coated string. This same pin is featured in the 2002 edition of Warman's Jewelry Identification and Price Guide (pg. 152) with a price of $1,375. Warman's attributes the brooch to Martha Sleeper, a hard to find designer.It measures 4" by 2". The birds are screwed onto the wooden branch from behind. A delightful piece for the advanced collector.
