Carved Bakelite clamper bracelet Bakelite clamper

* This beautiful Bakelite clamper is a glossy eod marble, including at least 3 shades of green, bright light yellow,pale yellow and a rich golden orange. It's topped with an amazingly detailed carving of an Oriental pagoda with a figure in it which is bordered on two sides by carved leaves. The pagoda carving is carved all the way through around the figure and the decorations include piercing. One of the heavily carved leaves is on the same piece of Bakelite as the pagoda scene. The other leaf is a separate piece and sort of hides where the clamper opens and closes. This Bakelite bracelet is really a small piece of art that you can wear and admire for years to come.

* This gorgeous Bakelite clamper is 1" wide at the top and narrows to 3/4" wide at the bottom. This is a dome style bracelet, but the middle 7/8" of the exterior face has been carved flat while the edges curve out to the sides. This bracelet is 1/4" thick. The interior diameter measures 1 3/4" tall and 2 3/8" across (I have a 6 3/4" wrist and it fits me comfortably).

* This Art Deco treasure is in excellent vintage condition. There is a narrow surface scratch to the left of the left leaf which is hidden by the heavy marbling. Otherwise, there are no chips, cracks or visible scratches to the Bakelite or to the carved areas.
