They are considered part of the description! Every effort has been made to call out any flaws we have noticed. Any defects not mentioned but visible in the pictures will be considered part of the description. When we describe an item as "Bakelite", we mean any cast Phenol Formaldehyde Resin (Phenolic Resin) manufactured starting in 1907, under many brand names including Bakelite, Catalin and Faturan.
For us to call it "Bakelite", the item has passed the Simichrome test. Most phenolic resin jewelry was made between the two World Wars in the 20.
In the early 1940s, factories turned their attention to manufacturing items for the war effort, and use of plastics for jewelry significantly decreased. By the early 1950s, Lucite, Plexiglas and other plastics had replaced phenolic resin, and for the most part, what we now think of as "Bakelite" ceased to be produced. My mother was an avid vintage costume jewelry collector. She found her first pieces of Bakelite in the early 1970s, and continued to collect up to her death in 2014.
She loved celluloid, Bakelite, rhinestone, copper and more. She hoped I'd be able to share it back into the community of fellow collectors - and make myself a bit of cash at the same time. Not only has that come to pass, but every time I pass one of her babies onto a new Mom or Dad, a little of her spirit goes with it.We will gladly respond within 24 hours.
