This is a huge, black, spiral molded plastic bangle bracelet. This massive bangle is 1 5/8" wide with super thick ribbed walls. It measures 2 5/8" across the opening and 8" around the inside. It has a foil label on the inside which reads "Made in Western Germany". There is also a second foil sticker with a number on it on the inside of the bangle. These bangles were originally made in ninety colors. This is the FIRST one I have ever found in black!
The bracelet is featured on page 121 of Plastic Bangles by Lyn Tortoriello & Deborah Lyons., Schiffer Publishing,c. 2005. There are some rough spots along the edges of the bracelet which is common with these bangles. I have tried to show them in my last photo. The bracelet is, otherwise, in excellent condition.
