My Gma was born in 1882. I have a plastic brooch that belonged to her. Not sure if it is Lucite, Bakelite, or what??? There are no marks on it AT ALL... however it is beautifully done, the detail is very nice. Does anyone have any help for me. grandmas%20brooch%20%284%29.jpg
It looks like celluloid which is made from plant cells. Plastics are made from petroleum. Celluloid becomes very brittle with age; be careful with it.
