  • Details
    Bakelite bangle notch carved bakelite bracelet

    * Bakelite bangles were originally made in jewel tones and pastels. Over time these bangles have changed color through a process known as oxidization. This bangle was light blue when manufactured and turned green over the past 75 years. When I sanded this piece I found this soft blue color underneath, and it is so pretty! The color before sanding and polishing is shown in photo #5. The notch carving makes this a really unique and interesting piece.

    * The bangle measures 1" wide at its widest point, is 1/4" thick and has the standard 2 1/2" opening.

    * This fun and very glossy bakelite bracelet is in excellent vintage condition, with no chips, cracks or visible scratches.

    * Prior to sanding this bangle tested positive for bakelite using simichrome and hot water. After sanding the bangle still tests positive using hot water and will react to the simichrome again in a few months.

    This one of a kind bakelite bangle will make a great addition to any bakelite lover's collection, and will be shipped in a gift box.
