Very Good - A little darkening to the celluloid in one small area. This is only visible upon very close inspection and does not detract from the appeal of the piece.

This bangle is constructed from cream celluloid. It features hand painted and carved geometric designs in red, gold and black. The internal diameter of the bangle is 6.75cm. 

A Short History...

Celluloid was a highly popular material in jewellery manufacture during the 1920s and 1930s. Newly pioneered injection molding processes, meant that cellulose could be used to produce many identical pieces at the same time. This resulted in the cost per item of celluloid pieces being very low and the material could therefore cater for post-Depression and wartime demands for affordable jewellery.
