Bakelite Reverse Carved and Painted Fish Bowl Pin

Item No: Vin660
Description:
Rare original vintage 'book piece' reverse-carved and hand-painted fish bowl brooch, the workmanship is amazing. The fish are blowing bubbles and they are deeply reverse-carved into the Bakelite. The design is thick apple juice Bakelite where the fishes are painted with reddish gold and dark rose. The hand painting of the fishes, base, and grass is all original. There's a little loss of black paint on the base of the brooch, otherwise the condition is perfect. The original back pin is embedded and has a safety clasp and works perfectly. The brooch measures 2 inches (5.8cm) wide x 1.77 inches (4.49cm) long x 0.5cm depth, as far as I know, this is the only size it was ever made in. The condition is great considering age Circ 1920's, an absolutely gorgeous brooch!

Book-piece
The fish bowl brooch is the exact one photographed and appears in the book - Bakelite: The Art of the Carver, Tortoriello/Lyons, Schiffer 2008 on page 80 where this same pin was photographed.

Victorian Mourning Jewellery
This beautiful example is made from highly reflective Vauxhall Mirror Glass. In the language of flowers and mourning the fern leaf had a number of special meanings. Sorrow, Victory (of the soul over the mortal body) and Resurrection. They were most often worn as a symbol of lost love and perhaps it was worn as a remembrance of a lost love by a loving wife who had lost her husband.
