Laminate Wood Bakelite Bangle SOLD
SOLD $50.00 SOLD
A layered wood - appears to be teak and white bakelite bracelet. It has been beveled around the flat of the bracelet alternating on either side to reproduce a wave effect around the circumference of the bangle. There is one small flaw/chip on inner rim on white bakelite that is barely seen or felt. This might have occurred during manufacture. I do not know the exact age of this piece, but I do remember my mother wearing it during the 60's and after. She might have already possessed it for some time; I really have no way of knowing. It seems to be a extremely versatile piece that could be dressed, up or down. The thing just feels good. The bracelet has an outside diameter of 3 1/8" (7.9cm), and an inside diameter of 2 1/2" (6.4cm), and is 1/4"(0.6cm)thick; it weighs 0.4oz (11g).
