Uncle Sam Patriotic Jan Carlin Figural Cribtoy Style Brooch utilizing vintage Bakelite methods and materials


Shipping to United States: $10.00

Purchased personally from the artist.
I am happy to present this wonderfully fun and rare Uncle Sam "crib toy" by artist Jan Carlin.
Jan Carlin is the foremost Bakelite jewelry designer recycling vintage lucite and bakelite pieces into fine Retro pieces of jewelry. She has been known to set her pieces with real diamonds and gold.
This cute guy is wearing a stylized Uncle Sam hat and consists of a triangular shaped bodice with an enamel American flag and black bamboo carved belt ring with a bead at the waist a disc round shaped lower abdomen. Amazing honey tube legs capped with rings and caps and disc shaped feet, the photos show it all! Including the cute hat with the funky bowling pin dice attached. 8 inches tall, his head is 1.5 inches across. This guy has a sweet personality, and one can easily see the allure of his google eyes and vintage hat he has to advanced collectors. Iris Apfel had many of Jan's creations in her incredible collection. He is a very large statement piece indeed and sits just as well as a decorative item on a shelf as he does upon one's lapel.

I have a new collection of about a dozen of these recently acquired from Jan Carlin that will be listed this week.

I use small doll stands to display my Jan Carlin Figurals. I can provide the information to order them.
