  • Vintage from the 1930s

A fantastic Art Deco 1930's hand-cut tortoise shell Bakelite bib necklace. The Bakelite pieces measure 2" long x 3/8" wide. There are 38 pieces total. We could not find this necklace in any of our books! The necklace is about 15" long. But a handy dandy necklace extender would work great with this piece. Excellent original condition!
As objects made of tortoiseshell are very scarce, Tortoise shell Bakelite was often used. Bakelite, a nonflammable early plastic formed by combining carbolic acid and formaldehyde, was introduced around 1910.

Absolutely stunning ring! It's so unique and very special. The ring is exactly as described and even more beautiful in person. The ring came in a lovely gold ring box for protection. SUPER fast shipping - - I was wearing this ring two days after I purchased it! Excellent seller! Diane is very nice and extremely helpful. Great communication. I highly recommend this seller. I will definitely purchase from her again. Top notice service all the way!
