1 This little bracelet is quite old I think. It is a reverse carved Bakelite bracelet on elastic.
2 I tested with Simichrome and got a positive test on the applejuice, but not on the black part. Black Bakelite doesn't always test well.
3 The applejice sections are finely carved with a leaf design. The bracelet is just over 5/8" wide and it is 2 2/4" inches across. Of course, it is on elastic, so it will espand to the 2 1/2" usually required. The spacers are brass.
4 This Bakelite bracelet is clad in a smooth gold color metal. The Bakelite is a spinach green, with yellow marbling showing though.
5 Here is a close up of some of the yellow marbling peeking through.
6 The bracelet is 1" wide with 5/8" walls. The opening is the standard 2 1/2". In excellent condition....no breaks in the metal "lace."
7 Purple plastic. Center has some clear Lucite fingernail spots. Earrings are clips and are 2 1/4" across.
14 This is a guaranteed Vintage Bakelite bracelet. I just love this carved beauty...it has a story.
15 The bracelet is a hair less than 1" wide. The domed walls are 3/8" thick. The diameter of the opening is 2 1/2".
16 You will have to click on this one to see the initials scratched into the bracelet. Not the maker, I'm sure the initials belong to a previous owner. I just love when I find these owener notations on Bakelite.
17 If you click here, you will see the date 1936 scratched on the bracelet. These is one small chip on the inside of the bracelet seen here in the lower left. I can not be seen when worn.
18 This is a wonderful pale, creamy pink plastic bangle. It is not for the timid, as it is 1 3/4" wide, and the walls are 1/4" thick.
Put this one with ivory, or purple, or fushia, or lime green for a fantastic effect.
Price $ 38.00

Hi, very pretty bracelets, however, it is not clear to me what the bracelets, individually, are made of. You don't say on many of them. Should one assume one thing if it doesn't say? I am interested in bakelite and Prystal. Thank you, Christine - christine, Mon, 7 Jul 2014 11:59PM
