This demi is an imitation of a carved cinnabar necklace. In this case the imitation is worth more than what it is imitating! The Capri company hand tag still hangs on the necklace showing it is new old stock ....rarer in the bakelite world. Capri was in existence from 1950 to the 1977 out of New York city and were selling a supply of leftover bakelite that they bought in a liquidation sale. This is one of them and I have another one in my shop with a hang tag as well. The necklace measures 15". The clip back earrings are domed and measure 1 1/2" over the dome. The brass spacers have nice aged patina showing the age of the piece. Tested and guaranteed bakelite.
