Circa 1940 Fabulous Carved Black Bakelite Bangle
This Bakelite bangle is so fabulous!! It is deeply carved in a chic geometric pattern from a glossy black surface to reveal a stunning, rich reddish-orange layer. The design is really quite spectacular: the gently curved, elongated black diamond shapes stand out dramatically against the sweeping channels that are carved in between. The depth and the colors combine to create a wonderful shadowy texture that immediately draws your eye in. It’s a fantastic piece of Bakelite jewelry that even a non-collector can appreciate! It layers well with other bangles (as pictured) but looks very chic all on its own. The size is 1” wide and about 1/4” thick. The inner dimension is exactly 2-1/2” across.
