Vintage Bakelite Buckle Bracelet in Brown and Butterscotch.
Alternating 1" wide panels are double strung on elastic cord and have been tested via the Simichrome polish method. The bracelet also has the distinctive sound of bakelite. I did not do a hot water test due to the age of the bracelet and the elastic cord, however rubbing it only brings a very, very faint smell.
The brown is a deep brownish red and the butterscotch has a very small amount of marbling to it. The great thing about Bakelite pieces is that they look great, no matter the season.
The elastic cord is in good condition with only a small amount of loosening that would only be evident when stretched longer than the suggested wrist sizes below. I have only lightly polished it and the surface is in in very good to excellent condition, with only very light scratching to the surface.
Bracelet measures from 6 7/8" in length to 7 5/8" in length. It is 1" wide, with the buckle measuring 1 5/8" wide.
I've had this bracelet for quite some time, not really wanting to let it go...I just love the look and how it sounds!
Thanks so much for stopping by and as always, please feel free to contact me with any questions. I happily guarantee this piece as Bakelite and should you choose to do so, I will extend my normal guarantee time if you would like to do your own testing.
