    Being back on CW I'm warming up with two new posts:) . Bought a pair om bangles the other day. I was unsure of what type of plastic it was, but after some research and discussing with fellow CW friend Mary I think this is celluloid. The bangles have that smoth touch like bakelite and sound but don't look carved, so not bakelite. Looks like french ivory that I have seen in other pieces online. Bought them in an antique shop and as usual here in Scandinavia, they (we) don't have a clue about early plastic. The bangles are about 3,4 cm wide, so quite big. If you have or have seen something similar please let me know. I don't know the age of them other then that they are vintage.
    They will anyway match nicely with other bangles.

      Thanks Ms Chrystalchip! But what does "to boot" mean? My english didn't stretch that far even though I normaly understand almost everything, at least I like to think I do ha ha. You got to teach me this, what does it mean? :) :)

      "to boot" means special extra great. I think it originated with Vaudeville comedians telling jokes and then saying something under their breath or with facial expressions to the audience which makes everyone feel like you are in on the joke. It's a nice feeling. :)
