Product Description:

This charming Celluloid cameo brooch of an Edwardian courting couple has a carnelian-colored background with ivory-colored figures. The brooch dates back to the mid-1940s and is a wonderful example of Celluloid cameos. It is in excellent vintage condition, including its pin and clasp mechanism.

For those of you not familiar with Celluloid, the plastic dates back to the beginning of the 20th century to the 1930s. Celluloid is one of the earliest man-made plastics widely used in costume jewelry. Celluloid has certain characteristics that differentiate it from other plastics. In general, pieces made from Celluloid tend to be thin, light, somewhat brittle, sensitive to heat (they crack and craze), and early Celluloid can be extremely flammable (do not ever test with a hot pin!). When placed briefly in hot water, early Celluloid smells like camphor, while later cellulose acetate smells like vinegar. Celluloid jewelry should be stored carefully.

For those who collect cameos or Celluloid jewelry, this beautiful brooch would make for a wonderful addition to such collections.
