*So* Art Deco, this chic antique pin from a European collection is crafted of black and white galalith - the French Bakelite (which looks the same but doesn't test). Besides the figure's boldly contrasting feathers and beak, it gains interest from a pert diamond rhinestone accent stone. A large piece, measuring 2 1/2" x 2", it's in lovely condition. The present pinback is probably not original, but works fine and has the benefit of a strong safety clasp. Likely dating would be late 1920s.
