Fashioned in the 1930s, these vibrant yellow bakelite spacers bangles brightly decorate your arms alone or in a stack. These Jazz era bracelets were a favorite of flappers, and they would make a great addition to your jewelry collection!
Bakelite is an early, fire-proof plastic invented by Leo Bakeland in 1909. The ease of molding bakelite initially was used for industrial purposes but soon expanded into housewares, jewelry, and other decorative art. The affordability of bakelite jewelry became a favorite of the flapper generation, and its popularity only waned because of the onset of WWII.
The bangles are in very good vintage condition with minimal signs of wear. The surface of the plastic has fine lines and marks, nothing noticeable or obvious. There are no chips, cracks, or marks on the bracelet. Bakelite was tested.
The bracelets measure 8″ long and 3/16″ wide and weigh 7.99 grams each. This is a lot of 2 bracelets.
