Item: BPL 6

This wonderful Bakelite box is a powder box. You slip the Bakelite part over your box of powder. There is no bottom. The box is in great shape! The only blemish is a scratch on the inside of the lid, and there is a dark line in there also. It is not a crack or a scratch, just a dark line. This box would have been made sometime in the 30s, judging by its color and soft patina.

The box is translucent when held to the light. See the close up photo. You are looking through the lid. The box is 4" across and 3 1/8" tall.

Price: $ 200.00

Item: BPL 8

This necklace belonged to my mom. It is very Art Deco in style. Chocolate and butterscotch Bakelite. These are injection molded Bakelite pieces, and the necklace can be seen on page 65, in the book Bakelite Jewelry by D. Wassertrom and L. Pina. The necklace is a huge 54" in length, so it doubles easily. Rectangles and small squares are separated by brass spacers. There is one bead that is a little squished. I think it was made that way, and it is hard to find on the necklace. You can see it in my second photo.

This is an incredible music box. It is butterscotch Bakelite with a metal lid and insides. The metal is probably post metal. The little lifter on the lid is Bakelite. It plays "Who's Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf". There is a mirror inside the lid, and the box stops playing when the lid is replaced.

The bottom on the box has the wind up screw, and there is a patent number there that is not visible in the photo, back. The number is 2009804, which puts this item at 1935. This box is in really good condition, no scrapes, cracks or chips. You will be happy with this one.

Price: $ 420.00

This is a wonderful Bakelite bracelet. The color is a cinnamon red and the carving is superb.  The opening will fit an average 7 1/2" wrist. No chips, cracks or crazing. The bracelet is translucent, and some might call the color a red tea. The bracelet is 1 1/4" wide and the walls are almost 1/4" thick with the carving.  This bracelet is not vintage, but it is Bakelite. Price reflects this fact. Tested with Simichrome and 409.

Here is a Lucite bug for you. I'm not sure what kind of bug, you can name him. :)  The piece is all Lucite, and the body is painted. He sort of looks like a bee I think  The bug is in great shape, no condition problems that I can see.  The back shows a C clasp that is riveted on.  This bee (I'm calling him a bee now) is 2 1/2" from nose to stinger, and 3" from wing tip to wing tip.
