Carved Celluloid Tube Bangle with Clear Rhinestones
* This lovely vintage celluloid bangle is a rich caramel color with slightly lighter striations. The bangle is lightly carved with geometric designs and accented with clear rhinestones. This is a tube bangle, meaning that it is round on the inside and the outside.
* This pretty bangle is 3/8" in diameter and the interior opening is just under 2 1/2".
* This Art Deco celluloid bangle is in good to very good condition. There are no chips, cracks or scratches to the celluloid and no signs of decomposition. One of the rhinestones is dark, but the remainder are quite sparkly. The carved areas appear to have originally been filled with black dye, but about half of that has disappeared, making it somewhat difficult to see the carvings. Last of all, there is a dark bumpy area (see pic #3) where it appears that someone did the unthinkable and stuck a hot pin in the bracelet. Still, all in all, this is a lovely and very wearable piece of vintage jewelry.
