1990s Vintage Wide Turtle and Lips Carved Black Fakelite Clamper Bracelet
Looking for a vintage-inspired bangle without breaking the bank? Check out this 1990s turtle and lips carved fakelite plastic clamper bracelet! This thick, jet black bangle was designed to imitate vintage Bakelite bangles. While these fakes are a huge problem when passed off as actual Bakelite they are really cool pieces in their own right and have themes not seen in real vintage Bakelite, without the high price tag. This fakelite bangle is carved with a design of turtles with translucent brown eyes, and two pairs of lips "kiss" where the bracelet opens.
This bangle comes from a private collection of vintage plastics and Bakelite, curated over 30 years by a New Orleans collector. Don't miss your chance to add this unique piece to your own collection!

Condition: Excellent vintage condition. Slight scratching consistent with normal wear. White this will test positive for Bakelite using the Simichrome test, it is NOT real vintage Bakelite. These bangles were released on the market in the 90s to capitalize on the Bakelite craze and are FAKE. Those little carved dimples are a dead giveaway. This bangle failed the hot water test.
