I just bought this wonderful 16.5" red choker/necklace. I thought it was bakelite but doesn't pass simichrome tests. Also because of the crazing on barrel beads and at the clasp. Doesn't matter to me - this is very nice.
It's a great example of old plastics out there. The color is most true to first picture - a lovely opaque warm red.
Note the faceted round beads tool marks? I believe this is from Europe. Items from US in this same time frame were not faceted but smooth lovely beads.
Please chime in if you know something more - thanks for looking!
