    Last weekend at the flea market I found this old necklace.
    It's 57 cm long and the smallest beads are 1 cm. en the largest are 1,5 cm.
    There is an old screw clasp made out of a bead. The color goes from yellow to dark brown.

    No reaction from simichrome, so no bakelite. But then what?

    Unsolved Mystery

    Help us close this case. Add your knowledge below.

      Celluloid, perhaps? I love the color!

      Thanks Bonnie, quick as allways. I don't know how to recognize celluloid but shall try to find something on the internet.

      Nice all the same! I love the screw bead clasp!

      This is very wonderful! Wish I could say for sure - looks like bakelite to me. :-)

      I have written an answer in your other post. I have a similar necklace but with barrelshaped or oblong beads, whatever it's called :(. It is an old european necklace that tests positive for bakelite on the beads but not on the beadclasp.

      Thanks Elisabethan. I have cleaned the necklace and tested with simichrome on the beads but no reaction.
