This is a great piece. She is made of Phenolic Resin. All her features, hair, eyes, teeth, and lips are overlaid phenolic - they are not surface colored or painted. She is wearing a lovely banana necklace and earring, recalling her famous banana dance at the Follies Bergere. This is an exceptional piece. It is the best image of the great Josephine in brooch form I have seen. Most images, described as Josephine Baker, are simply ordinary souvenir images of African-American women, and bear no resemblance to her. This is unmistakably the beautiful Josephine. She is in lovely condition. The pin has a safety catch and it is embedded in the resin. The pin is 3 1/2" from the top of her head to the tip of the bananas, and is 1 1/2" wide. The Brooch is in excellent condition with no problems and no marks. It is truly a piece to treasure.
