Unique Bakelite Multi-Layered and Scallop Carved Bangle
Unique Bakelite Multi-Layered and Scallop Carved Bangle. Very unusual, 1/2″ wide bangle, measures 2 5/8″ across with interior measurement of 8,” indicating a smaller wrist size. There are 21 colored layers. The interior is a pea green shade with the top layer a forest green. Colors repeat and include: brown, mocha, peach, orange, and 2-3 different greens — all of which are repeated 2-3 times. Carving consists of 1/4″ repeated scallops on both sides, thus producing the wavy pattern that highlights the multi-layered pattern below. Under a 10x loupe tiny “air holes” and carving lines are visible, but not to the naked eye. The interior of the bangle tests positive for Bakelite with Simichrome. A spectacular bangle illustrating superb design and workmanship.
