THIS IS AN ORIGINAL NEVER USED BAKELITE NAPKIN RING. THE ROOSTER IS A BLACK COLOR WITH TRANSLUCENT GREEN EYES ON BOTH SIDES AND HAS NO SCRATCHES OF ANY KIND. HOWEVER, T IS A CRACK THAT APPARENTLY HAPPENED WHEN THIS WAS EITHER MADE OR POLISHED THAT RUNS FROM ONE GREEN EYE TO THE OTHER UNDER THE NOSE AREA. THE EYES ARE BEST SEEN IN THE SECOND PICTURE. I AM THE ORIGINAL OWNER AND AS WITH ALL MY ORIGINAL BAKELITE PIECES, I IMMEDIATELY PUT THEM INTO A PLASTIC BAG AND THEN INTO A COLLECTORS CASE IN ORDER TO AVOID DAMAGE. THIS NAPKIN HOLDER IS THREE AND ONE-EIGHTH INCHES HIGH AND TWO AND FIVE-EIGHTH INCHES WIDE FROM THE END OF THE NOSE TO THE END OF THE TAIL. THIS AN EXCELLENT EXAMPLE OF BAKELITE, AND I HAVE COLLECTED BAKELITE FOR A VERY LONG TIME. THIS COME FROM MY PERSONAL BAKELITE COLLECTION.
