Vintage Turmeric Bakelite Handcarved Rose Blossom Bluma Charm
Bakelite is one of our favorite materials here at Lulu Frost. A unique plastic invented by chemist Leo Baekeland in Yonkers, NY circa 1907, Bakelite was carved into a myriad of shapes and items from flatwear to jewelry. This beautiful hand-carved 3D rosette c1920 in rich turmeric orange is a timeless classic.
Bakelite, gold-plated brass.
