Butterscotch Bakelite Bangle Bracelets (x2) + matching earrings

SKU: 10002245

This is a fabulous set of butterscotch bakelite bangle bracelets and matching clip on earrings! Bakelite was developed in 1907 and patented in 1909. It was first used for electrical capabilities and was more functional than beautiful. However, by the 1930s it was beginning to be used for chess pieces, jewelry and domino sets.  Bakelite enjoyed its heyday in the 30s and 40s. It was popular due to the ability to manufacture it in so many colors, a limitation previously seen in other jewelry types. Bakelite could be made in many different colors and carved into many different shapes. It was an absolutely revolutionary material to work with in this day. These pieces have been tested with cleaner and hot water and are authentic bakelite!
