    I don't know anything about this bangle other than it seems to be well made and in excellent condition. I found one on line with the same pattern claiming to be from the 1930's. I am not sure about my bangle being that old. Nowadays there are so many copy cats out there that, in my humble opinion, it becomes harder and harder for an amateur collector like me to determine if it is a vintage item for sure or just a copy.

    Thanks for looking:)

      It could be bakelite if it's older. A quick test is to put it in hot water and if it smells bad (acrid smell) it's bakelite. Saw this on Antiques Roadshow :)

      I haven't seen this exact design but very pretty. What color is it? Can you direct me to that on-line site so I can compare?

      Hi valentine, here is the link to the only bangle I found on line looking kind of like mine: https://www.etsy.com/listing/163024023/chunky-carved-flower-bangle-bracelet?ref=market
      Of course, who knows if it is really the same manufacturer and time period. I am skeptical.
      The colour is almost like skin colour; one could also compare it to the colour of band aids.
      Thanks:)
