Chartreuse Yellow-Green Bakelite Drop Earrings
These Depression-Era screw-back earrings have brass fittings trimmed with 3/8" round bakelite beads. There are elongated, polished flat bakelite hoops dropping from the screws. The color is chartreuse with yellow veining; this is called "Catalin" bakelite. (The Catalin Co. of Chicago invented the color-mixing process.) These earrings measure 2 1/8" from the bead to the bottom of the hoop and are 1 1/16" wide. The condition is fine; they are wearable; one earring has a hairline near the top of the hoop. The earrings could be converted to posts or wires simply by replacing the screw portions.
Gender: Female, Age Group: Adult, Color: brass, green, yellow-green, Size: 1 1/16" wide X 2 1/8" long
