This very neat bangle bracelet looks just like Victorian coral, but it's made of Bakelite, an early type of plastic. I'm not sure how old it is, I believe it was made between the 1930s and 1950s.

It's in excellent condition, no chips to the "carved" flowers or leaves, and no cracks or structural damage. There is a darker rectangular space inside the bracelet which is where I believe a price tag or label was originally. You can also see a grey-ish molding (seam) line on the inside of the bracelet, but you don't see either of these things at all from the outside. There is also a grey-ish bubble or speck in the plastic that was part of its manufacturing, you can see it in the photos.

The bracelet's opening measures 2.5 inches in diameter. It's .5 inch wide, and its inner circumference is 7.75 inches around. A bit on the smaller side, as bangles go.

Common Sense Advice: this early plastic item needs to be worn and treated with reasonable care. It could break with rough treatment or too much stress.
