(SOLD) Oriental Design Bakelite Buckle 1940s - Cream Corn Coloured Bakelite

Here is a wonderful phenolic resin dress buckle which dates to the 1930s or 1940s.  This buckle is made of Bakelite plastic and has deep carved and pierced decoration.  The design is in the Oriental or Chinese style that was so popular in that Art Deco era. The colour is a delicious shade of yellow known in the USA and in Bakelite collecting circles as ‘Creamed Corn’ because it is the shade of sweetcorn.  It is not a flat colour but one which has swirls and opaque colouring. It is extremely difficult to replicate the true colour of this piece as the light makes Bakelite pieces change a little and it will also vary on every individual computer screen, iPhone, iPad or tablet.   The carving design almost looks like curved feathers and this too adds a contrasting colour which gives a good definition to the piece.  This buckle has two white metal fixings applied with screws to the back, one a ‘D’ fastener the other a strong hook.  If you wanted to use it for a belt you would need another ‘D’ ring or would need to sew a slit into your belt to allow it to fasten. This Vintage Buckle measures 8.5cms by 6cms and is 5mms thick.  Offered in Excellent order this Bakelite beauty would be perfect for a collector and just lovely to use too.
