  • Details
    Deeply carved bakelite bangle bakelite bracelet

    * This bangle is one of four with the same carving pattern ( the others are listed separately). The color is glossy golden orange with a pale orange interior wall . The deep gouged carving pattern alternates between butterflies (sort of a disconnected X) and snails (a short slanted line topped by a half circle). Anyway, that's what they look like to me :). In the group picture, this bangle is at the bottom.

    * This bangle measures just under 1/2" wide and is 1/4" thick and has the standard 2 1/2" diameter interior opening.

    * Condition is excellent vintage, with no chips, cracks or visible scratches. The edge of the interior wall has one small fleabite, appropriate for the age of the bangle.

    * This bangle tests positive for bakelite using simichrome polish and hot water.

    This group of four bangles is a great example of how errors can creep in during the hand carving process. In the first picture of the set, the carving on all 4 bangles is lined up. The second photo shows the opposite side of the bangle in the first picture where none of the patterns line up.

    A great bangle for any bakelite lover, this piece will be shipped in a gift box.
