Rare Philadelphia Colors Bakelite & Chrome 1930's Bar Brooch: Rare and collectible, this fabulous late 1930's bakelite and chrome brooch features individual curved sections of multi color bakelite, deliciously wrapped in chrome. The colors bring to mind the famous multi color Philadephia bracelet, something we bakelite lovers all dream about! The bar on the back of the brooch carries the patent number 206696, this number dates to 1937 and is for the pin bar mechanism. The brooch measures 3 by 1/2" and is in excellent vintage condition. I have not polished the chrome, I will leave that to the new owner if they should choose, but I think it looks great as is.

Art Deco Black Bakelite 835 Silver Cigarette Holder: The elegance of the accessories from days gone by is reflected in this art deco 835 silver and black bakelite cigarette holder. Architectural in design, the sleek black bakelite mouthpiece holds a layered, tapered top of 835 silver which graduated from 5/8" wide at the base to just a hair over 3/8" wide at the top and is 3" long. The silver is marked 835, suggesting this piece may be German in origin. The condition is excellent.
Vintage African Witch Doctor Pendant with Bakelite Drum: This fun vintage pendant features a black enamel with doctor holding a skull staff. He is perched on a carved bakelite drum. He is sporting a top hat and brass hoop earrings and wears a loin cloth. Although these are sold as Charles F. Worth, that attribution has been thoroughly debunked. We do not know who made these charming figural pieces. The pendant is in wonderful condition with little weat to the enamel. It measures 2 1/4 by 1 1/4". Please note he is missing the pendant jump ring.

This unusual design would be a great addition to any bakelite collection and a fun piece to stack with your other bangles!
Large Vintage Bakelite Marbled Tortoise Hoop Earrings: These large and luscious vintage bakelite clip back hoop earrings are a translucent ice tea color with dark marbling, often called tortoise shell. The earrings are in excellent condition, the clip backs have plenty of "snap". They are 1 1/8" across and 3/8" wide.
Vintage Carved Black Galalith & Brass Necklace: This 1930's necklace features a medallion of black galalith hand carved with a lovely floral design. These are often sold as bakelite, but they are not. The galalith is set in an ornate brass setting, the brass heavily stamped in a flower and leaf motif. Each edge of the pendant is curled under in a flattened loop. The pendant measures 2 7/8 by 1 3/4" including the ornate bale. I do not think the twisted double chain is original to the piece, but it came with the pendant and looks great with it. The bale loop is large enough to accept almost any chain or cord. The chain is 17" with a secure spring ring clasp.
