Black Bakelite & Diamanté German Choker
14 3/4" x 5/8"
Excellent (see description)
This vintage Bakelite necklace is probably from Germany. It has curved links of black Bakelite alternating with slightly larger curved links of channel-set diamanté. The components are threaded on a chain with metal spacers between each link. When laid out on a table, the necklace retains a slightly curved shape. The back of one of the Bakelite links has a small chip (shown in the last photo), but the appearance and integrity of the piece have not been compromised. This necklace was made for a slim neck, so please note the length (14 3/4″) and check your neck size before purchasing this piece. The look of this necklace is Machine Age and very classy.

Schreiber & Hiller Jewelry, Vintage Bracelets, 1930s JewelryVintage Bakelite jewelry as beautiful as this German flexible bracelet from the 1930s is hard to find. It has vertical links of diamanté alternating with black Bakelite. The stones in this piece are relatively large – only four to each flat-top link. This Art Deco bracelet closes with a concealed clasp. Because one of the markings is "Patented" (an English word stamped by a German maker), I think this bracelet was intended for export.
