Bakelite is a resin material that was produced in the early 1900's and was the first plastic substance made of synthetic components. Initially used for its electrically non conductive and heat resistant properties in radio and telephone castings, the material was also used in other products such as kids' toys, kitchenware and jewelry. Typically made of bold, beautiful colors, Bakelite has become very collectible over recent years and is appreciated amongst many.

A fantastic and funky Vintage Bakelite bracelet attributed to Charles Elkaim from the 1950s era! This fashionable bangle has a colorful design, comprised of bright creamed corn colored Bakelite "bow ties" inlaid within a cherry red background. The colors beautifully complement each other to create a bold contrast in this classic and collectable Bakelite dot design. The bracelet, which is particularly wide, has a raised center, which accentuates the fabulous bow tie motif, and slips easily on and off, no need for a clasp. It would look fabulous worn as a stand-alone bracelet, or stacked with other bangles for a layered look. A fun and eye-catching piece, it is perfect for the Bakelite collector, and would make a versatile addition to any vintage jewelry collection!

Measurements: The inside of the bracelet (where a wrist would rest) has a diameter of just under 2 5/8". It would fit nicely on a medium/average sized wrist. The surface of the bracelet measures about 1" wide and is about 3/8" in depth at the center point.

Condition: The overall condition of the bracelet is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, including a couple minor scratches, there is no serious damage to the Bakelite.
