    This is a molded plastic bangle with a little red sticker inside "made in Western Germany", so it was made before 1989. It's a copy of a bakelite design. I don't know how old mine is -maybe 1970's? I'm not exactly sure why I bought this LOL!! I think because it's a lovely green and knowing me it must have been very cheap. There are a few of these for sale now online from reputable sellers on ebay, etsy and Rubylane - mostly honest to list it as "molded, vintage". Note seam inside of bangle, also a seam runs vertically through outer pattern.

    I'm careful not to bang it...chips are waiting to happen. But it's a very beautiful bangle that fits over a sweater on my wrist - 3" opening and 1.75" wide and makes a dramatic statement for my black work uniform. I don't have ANY matching pieces darn it.

      Elisabeth - all of a sudden there are a bunch of these online. I think maybe it is NOS -new old stock. Well, the listings are calling it Lucite, the transparent ones look like Lucite, but I don't think mine is. Thanks for loving it!

      Thank you Marta for loving comment :-)

      Thank you Bonnie - I saw these listings. In fact the one from RL - Banglemania - is the seller I bought those 3 carved bakelite bangles from last year. Did you see the black bakelite bangle? I believe that one really is bakelite and these were probably copied from that old design.

      Thank you Ken for your beautiful comment and thanks to everyone else for loving this: Jenny, Scott, Phil, Aura, Lentilka, Kyra, Mike, Kevin, Fort :-)

      I'm not a big fan of green Valentino, but the shape... Wow!
    12. valentino97 valentino97, 5 years ago
      Thanks Rick - this is definitely an odd green color. Thanks for loving the shape of it anyway! It's even a bit too much for me :-)

      Thanks friends for loves: Mike, Kyra, lentilka, aura, Phil, Scott, Jenny, Kevin, sklo and Sean :-)
