$290.00

An American Art Deco Reversed Carved Roses in Cherry Amber Bakelite,(Prystal). A stunning example in a very rich Cherry Red with very deep and intricate carving. This is Prystal Bakelite which is Transparent and less common than that found in solid colours. The work put into the reverse carving is just overwhelming, and only shows when you get the beam of light hitting the bangle at various angles. It is in immaculate original condition with a soft age patina. To one edge, the flower petal touches the outer corner, and what looks like a chip, is the carving at edge. Please view the detailed photo of this. The bangle has a domed top with flat surface to wrist. Dimensions approx..:- Inner wrist diameter 6.6cm; width 2.2cm x 0.6cm thick maximum; total Mass 37gm..U.S.A.. Circa 1920.
