I found these bangles a the salvationarmy for about 2 dollars each. They are of wonderful quality and great condition.
The weight, the legendary bakelite sound and the carving tells me it´s bakelite, but I can´t feel a bakelite smell ?! Anyone who has experienced the same ? The larger carved bangle is 2,5 cm (0.98 inch) and the other is 1.5 cm (0.59 inch). The carved one has a weight of 50 grams.
Bakelite or galalith? Who knows :) but for sure these are early plastic bangles in great vintage condition and they make a wonderful sound on my arm.
