This fun, chunky Modernist Lucite brooch is a rich, glossy color reminiscent of amber or blond tortoiseshell. A slightly asymmetric open oval with smooth curves and subtle angles. This looks like a sculpture my dad made in college. He got an A+, so that says it all. Circa 1960.
Lucite is an engineering plastic trademarked in the United States in the late 1930s.
Details.....The brooch measures 3" by 2.43". In Very Good Vintage Condition. Some wear is to be expected in vintage and antique jewels; we consider it to be part of their charm.
