1940s Black Molded Tenite Cameo Japanned Vintage Mourning Jewelry

$ 24.00

This unusual cameo is the same as that seen on page 176 of "Plastic Jewelry of the Twentieth Century" by Lillian Baker, though this one is in a different, Japanned setting. There are 4 rhinestones (one each at noon, 3, 6, and 9 o'clock), and what look like marcasites (though they may be steel) in each of the "flowers" in the setting. It may have at one time had a pendant loop on the back, but if so, the loop is no longer there. The brooch measures 1 3/4" x 1 1/2" and is in excellent vintage condition. (The white spots are just reflection.) Really an interesting cameo brooch.

Pin will be shipped in a gift box.
