Up for sale is a deeply carved and molded, floral celluloid bangle bracelet with rhinestones.

MARKINGS: There is a mark on the inside that almost looks like a capital G but I think it may be someone's initial or possibly a scratch.

ITEM DESCRIPTION: The molded floral design on this bangle is daffodils. In the center of each one is a clear rhinestone. There is a split in the circle, which allows for some give when putting the bangle on. It has an approximate inside diameter of 7 3/4 to 8". It measures 7/8" high and is domed. These bracelets were made to imitate ivory in the 1930's era. More information on celluloid below.

Taken from Leigh Leshner’s “Collecting Plastic Jewelry” on page 11, she states the following: “Celluloid is an artificial, semi-synthetic thermoplastic made from pyroxylin and camphor. It is a thin, lightweight material that is sensitive to heat. It can be softened and reused. In 1927 the compound was refined with vinegar so that the material would not be flammable. Celluloid comes in hundreds of colors and can be buffed,polished,carved and molded to create wonderful jewelry, buckles and hair jewelry."


CONDITION: The condition is excellent with some light scratching on the inside that does not deter from the piece in any way. The stones are all present and it is starting to have some yellowing due to age. There is no damage from moisture or abuse in any way.
