A Pair of Pelicans Plastic Pin
This delightful vintage figural brooch is composed of two plastic pelicans - one brown and one yellow - with enameled accents. I believe this pin to be vintage, but not necessarily from the 1940s. The pin stem is metal, with both ends anchored into the plastic.
The brooch measures 2-1/8" across.
Note: this pin does NOT test for Bakelite. It is likely made of resin or some other similar plastic.
