Carved Lucite Tortoise Shell Wide Bangle Bracelet Floral Vintage Jewelry
• Materials: lucite
• Maker: unknown
• Approximate Year: c1950s
• Size: 2-5/8" inside diameter
This bracelet looks like tortoise shell (and bakelite) but I believe is semi-translucent lucite, with a carved, painted floral design. (It feels like and has wear similar to what you see on bakelite, but testing with simichrome leaves only a black streak.) Whatever it is made of, it is very beautiful and has a nice "clunk" to it. The inside diameter is 2-5/8 inches, it is 1-inch wide and 3/8-inch thick. There is some age-related wear on the inside edges, but other than that it is in excellent vintage condition. It will be shipped in a gift box.
