Just found this pretty 3/4" salmon celluloid bangle to add to my collection. It is really pretty with non-repeat carving. Tulips or California poppies! in picture 1 and chrysanthemum/daisy/roses around the rest. Residue from removed sticker inside matches size of the cream Japan ones I posted earlier. So, yes this is from Japan - 50's or 60's.
I think this is how they were made. Not hand-carved like bakelite. They are from molds flat, cut - heated, rounded, fused and glued to form a bracelet. So on and so on.
Of all I own this salmon one has nicest quality but still isn't the best.
