That may be a hummingbird carved into the Bakelite. It's definitely a humdinger of a Bakelite bangle bracelet.
This rare old genuine bracelet is two colors...overdyed black on a swirl of yellows and butterscotch shades. The bird is on each side of the bangle, highlighted against the black, carved deep into the yellows.
The bracelet has the standard 2 1/2 inch opening across. It's 7/8 inch wide.
The bracelet passes all Bakelite tests, especially the 50-years-of-collecting-Bakelite test. Have seen thousands of Bakelite bracelets over the decades but nothing like this great tweety bird nesting in the greatest plastic ever created.
Light wear. Still has good sheen, inside and out. No dings. No chips. Just chirps. Circa 1930s.
