A vintage Bakelite Bangle carved with a chevron design around the sides and with the front and back of the bangle surface left blank with no pattern. Strangely, the pattern is slightly asymmetrical, with 7 chevrons on one side and 8 on the other, although this is not noticeable when the bangle is being worn - I only noticed because the smooth front of the bangle doesn't tie up with the smooth part on the back.
In a lovely caramel butterscotch color, the Bangle measures 7/8 inch in depth and has an internal diameter of a fraction over 2 1/2 inches which I believe translates to an internal circumference of just under 8 inches. Although this is quite an ample size on the wrist, a buyer would need smaller size hands to get the bangle on.
Tested positive for Bakelite with simichrome, the Bangle is in excellent condition. At the groove on the first chevron at the front of the bangle, the edge of the bangle appears to have a piece missing from the edge as the edge dips in where the first groove is, but this is not damage, on close inspection everything is smooth and there are no breaks, so the bangle was carved this way.
