Hello I have this bangle that I have seen before I think when looking at Bakelite bangle have checked it but it looks like it could be.
Any help on it would be great
Thank you

    Hi again, this one looks like a nice piece of glossy lucite, circa '60s. Bakelite typically will not be white unless it's been refinished (sanded back) :)

    I agree you will not get white unless it has been refinished. I just paid $60 for a similar piece only to get it home and find out it was lucite. The dealer sold it as Bakelite. Always keep simichrome on you.

    Yes - keep simichrome w/you! As for this bangle - it's really great 60's as vmode told you. Getting hard to find these treasures too altho there are similar new ones. The 1960's examples are a little heavier and definitely better made than the new stuff.
