Bakelite, a history:

The art deco jewelry period began with the end of the art nouveau period in approximately 1920 and continued through 1935. The most accessible and collectible jewelry of the deco era was Vintage Plastic. The most colorful and fun jewelry to wear, for the Deco collector, is Bakelite jewelry.

Bakelite, a phenolic resin, was cast into tubes, rods and carved sheets by machinists. Bakelite was invented by Leo Baekeland, for which he obtained a patent on July 13, 1907. The demand for this useful vintage plastic resulted in the production of household items, games, toys and of course art deco jewelry. Most Bakelite production ceased in 1942 with the beginning of World War II to be replaced by the less expensive Lucite.

Bakelite Jewelry was sold in the 1930's and 1940's in US department stores such as Sears, Saks, B. Altman, and Bonwit Teller. Notable art deco designers such as Van Cleef, Arpel, Chanel and Lalique designed jewelry items using this material. Even the Royal Yacht Britanna had furnishings using Bakelite trim! Also, Nancy Cunard of the Cunard Steamship lines, could be seen wearing armloads of bakelite bangles!

Even though the Art Deco period of jewelry ended technically in 1935, the production of vintage bakelite jewelry, as stated above, continued until approximately 1942, utilizing the design of the Art Deco period.
As Bakelite jewelry collecting continues its revival, so many of us are still bewitched by the dazzling colors, intricate designs and configurations and bright and shiny patina. Where have all the exquisite Bakelite novelties gone? Right here in our shop! We have had our own brick and mortar shops and have participated in numerous prestigous antiques and collectibles shows, and offer only authentic Vintage Bakelite pieces, with no reproductions, new bakelite or "fakelite" pieces. You can be assured of that! We would love to speak to you about your love of Bakelite and help you with your wish list. Be sure to see our fabulous selection of vintage bakelite flatware, and kitchenware, celluloid and lucite jewelry.

Don't stop your Bakelite collection with jewelry! We also carry a wonderful selection of vintage kitchenware items such as bakelite flatware and bakelite kitchenware utensils produced by Androck Bullet, Farber, Chase and Manning Bowman. We are also pleased to carry a fabulous selection of selection of vintage Lucite purse including signed vintage purses, such as Whiting and Davis, Wilardy, Llewelyn, Charles Kahn, Gilli, etc. You can furnish your home with wonderful Art Deco accessories and have a great deal of fun doing it!
