Vintage Bakelite Test+ Butterscotch Swirl Art Deco Vanity Crescent Moon Figurine For Sale

Super whimsical little Bakelite crescent moon figurine. The delicate crescent moon is attached to the base by a swiveling rivet (not screwed) and its construction is like the kind jewelers used on Bakelite earrings so that the dangles could turn freely. Whenback-lightis provided the marbling really comes out (see picture #8). The base measures an inch and 3/8ths and is made of two-color laminated Bakelite with the inner disc being olive and the outer butterscotch swirl. The crescent moon measures 2 inches across and the whole affair complete with the base measures just under 2&1/2 inches tall. I'd say1940 or earlier. And it's a real go-with to almost any Art Deco style collection: perfume bottles, vanity boxes, jewelry displays, curio cabinets or shelves full of knickknacks. The condition is excellent as shown with no chips or scratches. Questions welcome. Thanks for looking.

Note added: In pics 4 & 5 along the edge of the inner rim of the crescent you see what look like two file marks but it is just thePrystalclear Bakelite running through the marbling. It is completely smooth and it is merely and optical illusion. I tried to show it in the two pictures.
