Orange rhinestone Forbidden Fruit Lucite brooch
* Pictured here is a chunky sparkling orange rhinestone and Lucite brooch from the 1950's. Companies in Germany & Austria made a whole line of these fruit and vegetable Lucite and rhinestone pins, known collectively as "Forbidden Fruit". These pins originally were made with green enameled gold leaves. While this piece has lost most of its enamel, you can still see green enamel paint in some in the veins in the leaf.
* This pin measures 2" tall and 1 5/8" wide and is just over 1/2" thick.
* This sassy mid-century brooch is in excellent vintage condition with no chips, cracks or visible scratches. All of the rhinestones are present and sparkling and the gold metal coating is intact and shiny. The pin mechanism is original and in good working condition.
