If only we could click our heels together and be transported back to 1940 to buy up all the rest of these Catalin Bakelite bracelets for 59 cents each. Plus tax, of course. But alas, there's no such time machine so we have to enjoy this one.
It's GENUINE CATALIN as the original tag says. Catalin is a brand name for Bakelite. They're the company that took the functional Bakelite and added colors, turning it into Jewelry in the 1930s/40s.
This bracelet is a vivid shade of green, marbled with yellow and a bit of black. It has the standard 2 1/2 inch opening. It's 5/8 inch wide and 3/8 inch thick. It has a saucer shape with the center of the bangle doming out. Excellent condition. Glossy sheen is intact. Beam us back Scotty...we want more.
