I BOUGHT THESE AT AN ATIQUE SHOP, AND WAS WONDERING IF ANYONE NEW ANYTHING ABOUT THEM? I WAS TOLD THEY ARE BAKELITE. DOES ANYONE KNOW THEIR VALUE?

    The green and the yellow bangles are fairly common, in an auction setting probably around $15-$20 each & this is a high number. The brown one looks like it has a nice deep carving & this is what collectors want. The carved brown bangle would likely bring $25-$45. This is again in an auction setting. I have been collecting and selling for a long time. 2 years ago the prices for bakelite were much stronger. Today the prices for typical bangles is at an all time low. Hope you got a good deal, now is the time to buy for bakelite. I should mention that the market is still strong for interesting pieces, brooches seem to bring the most. In your photo it is hard to see but it looks like the green bangle may have a seem? If so it is not bakelite. A helpful hint when buying and looking, bakelite never has a seem. Hope this helps you in your hunts.

    The yellow and green may be what is called end of the day. I believe they are bakelite or at the very least lucite - which is also collectible but not expensive. The center bracelet is really wonderful. It must be bakelite.
