Lucite was manufactured and trademarked by DuPont in 1937. However an earlier product called Pontalite was introduced in the early 30's. I think my 3/8" red, green and yellow stripe bangle is pre-Lucite. Also sharing a 1/2" split bangle that would have been clear and is now a little yellow with age. Has a strip of aqua and gold fabric embedded inside. I think from the 50's but could be older. Both are not brittle, they don't shatter like celluloid if dropped on the floor. They have a little flex and being lightweight don't make noise.
Actually I wear the aqua bangle w/2 others I will post next.
Hope you enjoy these oldies. I'm very fond of the striped because it was my first old plastic bangle found in 1981.
