Description

This amazing 1950's bracelet has such a stunning color and carved design. Very unusual internal hinge and closure that locks tightly. This would be gorgeous worn alone with a group of other bakelite bangles.



Don't miss out on this rare find!

Bakelite semichrome tested positive

Bakelite is a phenolic resin - a distillate of coal tar and formaldehyde. Leo Baekeland discovered it when he was looking for a substitute for shellac - using money he made selling the patent for photographic paper to Eastman Kodak! A thermoset plastic (didn't change when heated). Carved pieces were usually done so by hand.

This is the most exquisite pair of pins imaginable - they are tiny, delicate, yet very strong and durable. The enamel is in perfect condition, both clasps as well. The seller was wonderful, everything as promised and on time. Very happy with this purchase, plus my granddaughter loves them, thinks they are just for her because of their small size. This shop has a wonderful inventory, I will definitely be back.
Thanks! Barbara
