Faux Ivory Celluloid Bangle with four open Roses on it - 1940s - 1950s (Sold)


This is another beautiful example of a moulded and carved Celluloid bangle  with lots of very detailed flower designs all over it.   The main flower on this one is that old English favourite - The Rose.  Not just one bloom either  - there are four perfect open roses surrounded by detailed rose leaves and lots of cheerful open Daisies in a repeating pattern.  The Ivory colour is a true cream which enhances the deep floral detail.  Measuring a little under 2cms in width, the bangle has a diameter of 6.5 cms across approx.  It is quite deep too, so that it is a little over 7.5cms if you measure across the outside of the bracelet.  These  bangles were mostly made from the late 1920s to the 1950s in Japan to imitate carved Ivory and have now become very collectable and increasingly difficult to find.  Very often they are marked inside with the word 'Japan' if they pre-date World Ward Two or the word 'Foreign' (as is the case on this item) if they are from the later 1940s to the 1950s. They look delightful worn grouped  together.  How you group is entirely up to you.  It works perfectly with other cellulloid bangles and bracelets, or with old bakelite bangles too! A contemporary look can be achieved with some new gold tone, sterling silver or maybe wood or acrylic plastic bracelets just for the fun of it!
