Bakelite bracelet wide yellow chunky Bakelite bangle
* When I found this curvy Bakelite bracelet it was a sorry mess. It had deep scratches, lots of small chips at the edges and it was filthy. I really liked the shape of this bangle so I took it home and gave it a good sanding until it was white again (its original color). That took care of all of the scratches and 99% of the chips, so I let it sit on my workbench and watched it age until it reached this beautiful buttery yellow. So now it's ready to go out in public again and make a big chunky statement.
* This Bakelite bangle measures 1 3/8" wide. It is 1/2" thick at the top of the dome and narrows to 1/4" thick at the carved edges. The interior opening is the standard 2 1/2" in diameter.
* In very good vintage condition, this bangle has only minor flaws. There are a couple of dark spots on the edge where flea bites had patina'd too deeply for me to remove them. There are no cracks or visible scratches and the piece has a nice glossy finish.

All bakelite is tested using a variety of methods. These include simichrome polish, hot water (smell test), tapping bangles together for the appropriate sound, and checking for mold lines and other discrepancies.
