THIS CHEERFUL, red cherry necklace is one of the most sought-after pieces of rare vintage Bakelite jewelry. 14 (FOURTEEN!!!) plump Bakelite cherries (6 large and 8 medium) and eight green celluloid leaves dangle from the original red celluloid chain with adjustable hook closure.

This stunning necklace is ALL ORIGINAL with (amazingly) no missing cherries or leaves. It is in excellent vintage condition with gentle signs of wear consistent with its age.

This rare, vintage bakelite "book piece" is pictured on page 7 of "Bakelite Jewelry: Good, Better, Best" by Donna Wassertrom & Leslie Piña, Schiffer Publishing © 1997.

SHIPS FULLY INSURED to anywhere in continental U.S.


S A T I S F A C T I O N G U A R A N T E E -- I personally inspect, measure, research and test every piece of Bakelite to ensure it is AUTHENTIC (passes the Simichrome test) and VINTAGE (made over half a century ago.) Your satisfaction is guaranteed, so you can be confident when purchasing items from my shop.
