Black molded and carved Bakelite bracelet
This Bakelite bracelet is unique in that its design was created both through molding and carving. The mold for this bangle created the curves across its width and what were originally flat sides. The flat sides were then carved to create hollows, the only place on this bangle where you can see carving marks. This simple, but elegant bracelet measures 1/2 wide and 3/16" thick at its thickest point and has the standard 2 1/2" diameter wrist opening. It is in excellent vintage condition with no chips, cracks or visible scratches and a nice glossy patina.
HINT: If you're having trouble getting your bangles on, try putting a nylon knee-high over your hand. This removes the friction and allows your hand to slip through freely!
All items are shipped in a gift box unless otherwise noted. Also included is a 10% off discount code for future purchases.
All Bakelite is tested using a variety of methods. These include Simichrome polish, hot water (smell test), tapping bangles together for the appropriate sound, and checking for mold lines and other discrepancies.
