I am wondering about age and type of plastic. This is post 2 of 2, here I´m showing closeups of the beads. More info is found in my other post today.
The larger beads that I show here are made of some sort of very dense plastic. They are cold to the touch and very even and smooth. The color is "yellowwhiteish". This necklace doesn´t feel new but ofcourse it could have been restrung or altered somehow. The claw-clasp isn´t old ofcouse but the ring that´s used to close with is bigger than I´m used to and to me it looks older than the clasp. The style and lenght of the necklace makes me think it could be from the 1920's, but what type of plastic could it be then if this isn´t bakelite? I can´t work this out. I am wondering about age and type of plastic. If you have the time I´d love some ideas on this. Guesses are also welcome.
I know for sure this is plastic of some sort, not organic! I know it looks like bone or toth or something like that but it´s not.
