Vintage bakelite heart and cherry pin has eleven bakelite cherries and a similar pin is pictured in Lillian Baker's, Twentieth Century Fashionable Plastic Jewelry on Page 75. The heart on this pin measures approximately 2-1/4 x 2" and the entire pin measures approximately 3 x 2". It has its original riveted pin stem finding with C-closure. In Very Good/Excellent Condition, the bakelite and pin are in Excellent Condition, but the strings have cracks where the red shows the underlying white string color as is often the case with pins of this type and is often expected by collectors. The cherries are very sturdily strung and the pin is very wearable. This is more a cosmetic issue than structural and is less prominent when worn than in our picture as we chose to highlight this factor. We guarantee the cherries on this pin to be authentic vintage bakelite. A beautiful vintage Bakelite Heart and Cherries Pin in original, "as found" condition.
