Bakelite Pins Summary

Bakelite Pins by Karima Parry

Bakelite plastic costume jewelry continues to be one of the hottest collectibles around. It's a retro fashion trend whose time has come...again! Bakelite pins are miniature works of art that are fun to collect. With prices ranging from a few dollars up to thousands for special pieces, a Bakelite pin collector needs to be knowledgeable. Author Karima Parry, a nationally known Bakelite expert, covers the history of Bakelite pins including the evolution of their designs, sections on testing, common decorative techniques, other vintage plastic pins, and how to avoid fakes and reproductions. This book features a landmark chapter on contemporary Bakelite pins made by artists Ron and Ester Shultz, Bruce and Vickie Pantti, and others. The book is lavishly illustrated with over 600 color photos and a clear price guide with every pin. Beautiful to look at, as well as interesting and informative, this book is the definitive guide to Bakelite pins.
