Square Lucite Brooch 1940's - 1950's Era (SOLD)

This vintage square shaped lucite brooch has two sugar pink flowers and some blue green leaves decorating it.  The flowers and foliage have been reverse carved into the lucite and the  floral picture sits within the square so that there is a point above and below it and a point to either side.  The angle of the carving on this vintage brooch adds to its style and appeal.  Dating from the late 1940s or early 1950s this old brooch is in very good condition and is a nice large size of 4 cms square and quarter of an inch thick.  The edges on this vintage lucite brooch have been bevelled to give a reflection all around.  It has a brass pin with a roll over end - a bit like an old tie pin.  There is just a little bit of wear on the back of the pin - it doesn't detract in any way and is just because the brooch has age and has been worn and enjoyed over time. 

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?
