A Vintage Bakelite pendant necklace is presented that truly has it all and is very unusual!
Circa 1930's-40's, this stunning Bakelite pendant dangles from a gorgeous vintage copper linked chain. The Art Deco inspired Bakelite pendant measures 1 ¼ inches long. It is 1 inch wide at the widest portion, which is the bottom. It angles upwards at the top, creating a sleek symmetrical Art Deco appearance. (see photos). The deepest portion is also towards the bottom, which is ¼ of an inch thick. The coloration of the Bakelite is just gorgeous very, very deep cream corn colored Bakelite, with swirls of contrasting tones throughout. The center of this Bakelite pendant has the added attraction of a bright cherry red round Bakelite ball permanently affixed to the center of this Bakelite pendant. This red Bakelite ball measures ½ inches round. The contrast between the very deep cream corn colored Bakelite pendant and cherry red center is just stunning! There is an unusual vintage copper link chain from which this Bakelite pendant dangles. The entire copper link chain measures 16 inches in length and can be taken on and off with great ease. It can also be shortened if one were to use a small vintage bar pin in the back. There are alternating larger and smaller copper links, the larger ones being double and measuring ¼ inch round and the smaller ones, being slightly smaller. Culminating at the bottom of the vintage copper chain, there are two cascading round copper links, matching the others, the bottom one being affixed through a small hole in the Bakelite pendant. BE SURE TO SEE ALL PHOTOS.
This is a most unusual vintage pendant necklace and is just gorgeous and the contrast between the Bakelite pendant and copper link chain is just amazing. The Bakelite pendant tests positive for Bakelite and the patina is bright and shiny. The entire vintage necklace is in mint condition and ready to be worn and enjoyed!
