    Found this week in Round Top, TX for $6. It's bakelite (rub test: formaldehyde smell, simichrome: yellow). A nice thick .5" all around with light carving. It's not the primo early bakelite but a very nice thick piece - probably from 50's, could be newer - nice heavy item. In picture 2 I show it with another similar era bakelite bangle I've had a long time.

      Thanks Phil - it was a great find. The seller specialized in furniture and had a little junk jewelry by his cash register. Pure luck that we wandered into that tent and found this.

      Thank you Aura for your love!

      Ha ha ha Ken!! Try it on a nice old bakelite bracelet from a dealer who verifies their bakelite. The older items give off a stronger scent.

      Thanks friends fro loving this deal of the day, black later era bakelite bangle:

      Yep, it works most of the time. Aren't these nice? I was visualizing black or red bakelite jewelry this time around :-)

      Thank you Elisabeth - these would look good with your wider bangle.

      Thanks to Kevin and Kyra.
