Yet again another Fabulous piece dating over 10 years. Very unique with its large beads & weight making it pleasure to hold.

German Bakelite Catalin is one of the rarest materials which can no longer be made. This piece has it all, gloss shine, patterns, different variations of amazing GREEN. 

The American Catalin Corporation introduced 15 new colors in 1927 and developed techniques to create marbling. The colors included yellow, orange, red, greens, blue, and purple, with clear, opaque and marbled versions. In the 1930s, jewelry made in these colors was popular with sets of beads, bangles, earrings, and rings being worn together.

The handles on John Wayne's iconic six shooter, seen in every movie from El Dorado through True Grit, were made of Catalin, not ivory, as often thought.
