1940's - 1950's Pink Roses Lucite Roses Brooch

Two fully open pink roses with leaves are featured on this reverse-carved Lucite Brooch. Dating from the late 1940s into the early 1950s the brooch is round in shape with a tapered  rim which, like a mirror, reflects the colours of the bouquet and adds to its effect. The roses are very realistic and they have a gorgeous faded effect and the leaves are almost a pale tobacco in tone.  The diameter of this vintage brooch is 1.75 inches and it is about quarter of an inch thick.  The floral lucite brooch has a brass metal pin which fastens with an open 'c' shaped guard.   It is in excellent condition. 

This  vintage pin is a great collectable for anyone interested in Bakelite era and early plastics .  Lucite was Dupont's trade name for their acrylic plastic material which they patented in the 1930's and is usually the name given to brooches and pins of this type.  The most common theme for them is flowers, some abstract and Art Deco in design, others very detailed - so you can tell exactly which flower is being depicted!  Lucite brooches are see through so take on the colour of the item of clothing that they are pinned to.  They look fresh and pretty on white and light colours and striking and dramatic on black and dark colours - How will you wear yours?
