    I have a few other carved bakelite bangles, but nothing like this recent online buy. It is 9/16" thick with lots of room for the 1930's or 40's artist to carve sunflowers on one side and a honeycomb diamond weave on other - meeting at the top.

    Very pretty translucent ruby red that matches a dragon brooch I posted a few years ago.

      An amazing bangle - the colour is gorgeous. Very envious!

      Gillian, thank you I've been looking many years for the deeper carved bakelite bangles. I was only able to afford it because it was cracked and repaired. But, it is so beautiful - I'm very happy with the purchase.
    3. Efesgirl Efesgirl, 4 years ago
      Definitely a good buy! The color screams 1940s red lipstick. :-))))

      Ooh! Never seen one like this red beauty!
      You did well, even if cracked, it deserves to be admired and proudly worn
    5. valentino97 valentino97, 4 years ago
      Thank you Bonnie - it does scream ruby lips!

      Thank you kyra. Turns out the seller has co-authored 2 bakelite jewelry books and we're having a lot of fun chatting back and forth about our plastic obsessions. I plan to buy those books and 2 other carved bracelets but I'm over my September budget. I love this. Always wanted a red one!

      What a beauty! It deserves to be worn!!

      Thank you Phil for taking a look at it and your comment. It's really wonderful and because I won't resell okay that it isn't perfect.

      Thanks friends for the loves: vintageforever, onegoodfind, btrue and rose.

      Thanks Elisabeth for the love again!! And I just got the 2 other bangles from the same seller. They look great together.

      Thanks Nevada and Fort!
