Bakelite sailboat and horse figural brooches
This lot includes both figural brooches shown in photo #1.
* The red carved sailboat is missing its "rigging" which would be a very simple fix. This piece is 1 3/4" tall, 1 7/8" wide at the bottom and is 3/16" thick
* The yellow carved horsehead is missing its bridle. It appears to be overdyed as there are traces of reddish brown in some of the carved areas. This piece is 2 1/4" tall, 2 1/2" wide overall and 3/8" thick.
Both pieces are in excellent vintage condition with no chips, cracks or visible scratches. The painted horse's eye is intact with no missing paint. Both pin mechanisms are heat set and are simple "c" catches in good working condition.
All Bakelite is tested using a variety of methods. These include Simichrome polish, hot water (smell test), tapping bangles together for the appropriate sound, and checking for mold lines and other discrepancies.
Please examine the pictures carefully as they are part of the description. I examine each piece listed and will note any flaws or defects I find. If you have any questions about this piece, please convo me.
I use a variety of colored backgrounds and editing techniques to try to match what I see with how the item displays on my computer. Please be aware that different computer monitors "see" color differently depending on the quality of their resolution and level of available color variation.
