Faux-ivory/bone called Ivorene an early Celluloid, or could be Galalith, Bakelite, vegetable ivory, or other very early plastic.

Chinese or Japanese oriental design figural vintage bar pin brooch.

There are trees and flowers and an oriental figure peeking out from behind a handheld fan.

There are rings at the bottom where mementos, charms or other tiny keepsakes would have been hung.

Friends of Moms told her years ago that they thought this was an early Celluloid and made in the early 1900's to 1920's as it was designed to be Faux-Ivory called "Ivorene", but we are not experts so we make no claims other than it is old and an early plastic of some sort.

I found one in an online antique shop for 142, not having the rings for dangles and named as Celluloid here:

That one was nice too.
That one doesn't have the rings to add your mementos.

Ours was valued at 185 minimum so it should be priced even higher here, but Dad and I have SO much of Mom's collection to go through so we are letting most of it go for much less than they should.

This brooch is about 2 5/8 long and 5/8" wide.

I see minor wear to the brooch which is normal for a used, vintage piece of jewelry.
Still so pretty and not that noticeable.

I don't see any maker's mark.

*Whenever you wish to clean these, or any vintage jewelry, please check to make sure the rings and pinback... are very secure and then have the pieces of vintage jewelry gently cleaned by a jeweler or collector who understands vintage jewelry.

*All items are "as is" and there are no returns so please read the descriptions and see the photos before you buy.
