RARE REVERSE CRVD CHERRY AMBER BAKELITE BRCLT

OHMAGOSH! This is definitely one of the absolute BEST bakelite bangle bracelets I have EVER found. Straight from a prominant estate in Buckhead of Atlanta, I offer exclusively to my online clientele this fantastic cherry amber red translucent reversed carved bakelte bangle. Dating to the early to mid century, this is GUARANTEED OLD, AUTHENTIC, HAND CARVED see though bakelite. Suitable as a single bracelet or to stack with others, here are the dimensions:

Outside Diameter: 3 1/8"
Inside Diameter: 2 1/2"
Wall Thickness: 1/4"
Width: 1/2"

I have seen similar bracelets descibed as genuine natural cherry amber, but I believe those are probably bakelite too. This is a rich deep, almost garnet colored red with splendid...make that GORGEOUS...carved detailed flowers, each flower intricately and deeply carved in a naturalistic style, the floral design encircling the inside of the bracelet. It was VERY difficult to illustrate this in photographs, but in person, this is a very important and lovely piece.

The flowers look kind of like chrysanthemums or daisies, and the bangle has a fabulous smooth curved edge.

The piece is excellent for its age, being in gently worn condition with no damage or repairs...definitely a few unremarkable surface scratches that serve to validate its age and authenticity...nothing detracting or devaluing in my opinion. I've done nothing to it other than try it on (and test drive it!), but you may choose to clean it. Authentic and Original, this is a rare piece that has an art deco or retro modern feel to it sure to please the most advanced of plastics and bakelite collectors!

Don't be fooled by my pictures...this bracelet is not nearly as photogenic as the true beauty it holds!

I ship with the US Postal service and I am happy to discuss shipping options with you should you wish to use another service. Insurance is usually purchased separately from an outside party from the USPS. I base my shipping on current USPS prices. Oversized packages can be subject to a surcharge by the USPS. I'm happy to combine items to save on shipping costs.
Please do not return it. Items are insured through either the USPS or a third party. Simply save all packing materials and the item and contact me immediately for instructions. It's rare that a claim is necessary, but it does happen from time to time and can be a relatively simple and quick process to get your investment refunded.
Yes, I ship all over the globe. Please note that you may be charged customs fees in your country which are beyond my control. Shipping rates are based on first class mail with upgrades available upon request. The shipping fees stated includes insurance, which is required and generally adds about $2 per $100 of coverage to the shipping total.

I'm NOT responsible for any taxes or customs charges from other countries. If a package is not picked up and returned to me, I do not offer refunds on the item or on shipping costs. It's the customer's responsibility to retrieve their packages from their postal service or customs. Again: NO REFUND if package is returned to me.
Simply click on "SHIPPING & POLICIES" tab under the photo of the item you'd like, and your shipping price will be revealed based on your US zip code or international destination.

The shipping amount generally also includes insurance, which is purchased from an outside company. So when you receive your item, the package will often not reflect those insurance costs since it is bought online. You can go to www.usps.com to view the latest rates from which these shipping amounts are calculated.
FREE shipping on chosen items applies to first class domestic shipping and is considered a FINAL SALE. In the even of a return for any reason other than an item not being as described, my actual cost may be subtracted from the refund you receive.

EXAMPLES:

~A $100 brooch inc. FREE shipping, if returned, would receive $95 to account for my 1st class insured cost to ship, and customer is responsible for costs to ship back as well.

~A $500 brooch inc. FREE shipping, would get a refund of approx. $490 to account for my 1st class insured cost to ship.

FREE shipping offer is extended as a promotion & is VOIDED in the event of a return.

HOWEVER, if a return is due to MY mistake, there is NO cost to buyer for ANY shipping.
