1940s Bakelite Clamper Bracelet


1940s Bakelite Clamper Bracelet

This is a wonderful moss green carved 1940s Bakelite Clamper Bracelet. Deep carving with pierced holes.  Strong spring hinge with lovely marbling.  It really speaks for itself.

Bakelite is not only worn because it is colourful and tactile but it is reminiscent  of the 1940s wartime era, when manufacturing of luxury goods such as jewellery, could only really be achieved through the use of man-made materials.  Bakelite bangles can be worn together making what is referred to as a stack, which adds a flash of colour to any outfit whether it be vintage or jeans and white shirt. When you wear a number of bangles together, whether it be 2 or 5, true bakelite makes a lovely ‘clacking’ sound as they hit each other.
