This beautiful carved bakelite bracelet is from a Saco, Maine estate. It is heavy, very substantial and beautifully carved. It has been tested with Simichrone as bakelite, though there is no doubt about it. Finding true vintage bakelite in estates is not as easy as it used to be. The bracelet is a yummy caramel color, and if you look carefully at the inside in the photos, there is a hint of a camouflage green on the inside only. It is beautifully carved on two sections which alternate with smooth sections. The opposite side of the bracelet has the same carvings but in opposition to the front, plain to carved. The bracelet is 5/8" in width with the interior diameter measuring 2 and 1/2". It is a great color for your fall wardrobe, a beautiful piece of vintage bakelite!
