The color of this lovely flying saucer bangle is most accurate in photos 2, 3 and 4, a warm rich yellow, brighter than butterscotch. Marblette was one of several companies that produced phenolic resins during the "Bakelite era." Although nowadays we refer to all such pieces as Bakelite, regardless of their original name/manufacturer. It's fantastic to have this bangle with its original string tag, which you rarely get to see.

The bangle measures 1/4" wide x 1/2" thick with a just over standard 2 9/16" opening. It tests positive with simichrome. Condition is excellent with just minor patina. The tag, which also has minor wear and one larger crease in the middle, could have been easily removed, so it's hard to say whether the bangle was ever worn.
