Bakelite jewelry was popular during The Depression because it was decorative, fun, and very affordable. Today, it is sought after and worn for the same reasons-except its affordability is rapidly changing. This book is designed to show off an extraordinary variety of this wonderfully colorful, always appealing, and sometimes startling jewelry, along with a sample of other objects through 420 color photos. It shows how to rate quality-good, better, best-and answers the many questions asked about Bakelite, from dealers' secrets to historical facts. The photos, the detailed information, and the indispensable price guide will provide beginner and connoisseur collector alike with all that is needed in the hunt for Bakelite.
