Bakelite Banana Bunch Brooch c1930

Sweet as the ripe bananas it portrays, this bakelite brooch is so much fun! Made in the 1930s, the heyday of bakelite jewelry, this piece is exemplary of the playfulness this medium afforded costume jewelry in the early to mid 20th century. The bananas are secured to short celluloid chains that dangle from the pin, allowing for movement and a very satisfying, subtle chime as they shift. The brooch measures about 2 1/4 inches by 3 1/2 inches at its widest and longest points.
