You’ll notice all of my posts are filled with an exorbitant amount of exclamation marks: But my knowledge is so rudimentary that all I can do is guess. So please forgive me. I found this in an antique store yesterday and I had to buy it. I paid $48 for it and I’m sure I overpaid but it “sang” to me and I had no choice but to buy it!!! ???? I can promise that I don’t ever pay this much… Or let me just say it’s a very rare occasion… So rare, I can’t remember the last time...since I have paid this much for a piece of jewelry, but I knew it was mine when I saw it. It’s plastic. I don’t know how to tell if it’s Bakelite but it’s from the 30s, I believe, so I’m guessing it might be. The paint has worn off one of the wooden beads and the wood underneath is just gorgeous. I want to say those are real turquoise beads, too. But, alas, I may just be speaking my hopes and dreams aloud! ???? Any and all feedback is always appreciated!
** None of the jewelry I list under show and tell is done so with the intent to sell. These are my personal pieces that are very special to me and that I enjoy learning about. If there is ever anything I intend to sell and I’m looking to find information about I will disclose that in the description. Thank you for all your help!**
