    My newest find - nice .5" bracelet w/4 clear rhinestones. But is it bakelite or Lucite? Black is hard to test: it passes 3 tests: simichrome, rub (for ether smell) and sound ... but I'm the first to question my own items.

    My gut says it's 1950's Lucite made when those beautiful Weiss clamper bracelets were so popular - like these: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/87585-1950s-black-clamper-bracelets-w-white-rhinestones

    Anyway the price was right and it goes with my other bakelite, nice and chunky - stacks up nicely on the arm. Hope you enjoy.

      If your guts say it is bakelite, you must trust yourself, Bakelite Queen ;-) Nice display on the tweetie!

      Kyra - you are too kind (is there a laugh, cough, wink emoticon?) I need to get a proper bracelet prop up. :)

      Thanks AGH for the love.

      I can never tell the diff, except with a hot pin!
    6. valentino97 valentino97, 6 years ago
      I forgot about the hot pin test - there is a burn mark (tiny circle nub) on this. And, a word of caution about the hot pin test to everyone - pin - not thumb tack or carpet needle - those will penetrate no matter what.

      Wonderful wonderful bangle! Elegant with just a few stones, I love it! Less is more. Great find!
