A fantastic vintage English bangle style bracelet in solid mottled orange Lucite plastic, dating to circa 1953.
This fabulous 1960s bangle is made from semi-opaque sherbet lemon yellow Lucite with an opaque white inside.
Decorate yourself in slouchy berets and designer scarves for a foreign touch, or load up on chunky Lucite bracelets for a trendier feel.
Although Bakelite has been superseded by plastics such as Lucite, many lovers of vintage jewelry and accessories are still combing the vintage scene for the last available pieces of this era.
Where women had once embroidered their reticules with flowers, many of the clear Lucite bags of the 1950s were in their turn hand-painted in floral patterns, among other options.
