Sorry, this item has sold.


Description: Inspired by the Art-Deco movement, this set of black panel bracelets is eye-catching & impactful.
The first bracelet is created from genuine black Bakelite & signed "ART" (Arthur Pepper).
There are eight panels.
Each panel has a pretty bamboo-like, texturized, silver-tone metal design.
The Bakelite pieces are set open back.
The reverse is high polished.
Very pretty piece with a significant weight of ~74 gms.
The roll-over clasp is substantial.

The second piece is a classic Art Deco design with the plastic encased in "chrome" silver-tone panels.
I love & have sold many pieces in this particular design but have never seen a thermoset charcoal black piece before.
The glow pieces are set open back.
The reverse is high polished.

Each bracelet is a ready-to-wear, wear-alone piece.


(All my Bakelite is authenticated using Simichrome Polish.)
