  • Details
    Bakelite jewelry bakelite necklace bakelite brooch

    * Both pieces of this beautifully reverse carved demi are super chunky and have aged to a rich apple juice color. On each piece, the edges have been squared off and the bakelite carved into a dome shape. The necklace and brooch have identical floral carvings (in so far as hand carved pieces can be identical) that reach deeply into the bakelite. The pendent is hung from a celluloid chain that is similar in color to apple juice. These pieces were clear when they were made, so a black covering was attached to the back so that the carving could be seen.

    * Both the pendent and the brooch measure 1 1/2" square and are 3/4" thick at the top of the dome. The celluloid link necklace is 30" long and easily slips over your head.

    * Both pieces overall are in excellent vintage condition. The brooch does have a small chip on the back edge which cannot be seen when worn. There are no other chips, cracks, crazing or visible scratches and both pieces are nice and glossy. The pin mechanism on the brooch is in good working condition.

    * Both pieces test positive for bakelite using simichrome polish and hot water.

    This set is shown in many of the bakelite reference books and will be a great addition to any bakelite lover's collection. Both pieces will be shipped in a gift box.
