I purchased this clamper bracelet at an estate sale. The tag that was attached stated that it dates to the 1940s and consists of clear rhinestones, black bakelite, and gold tone metal. Of that statement, I'm not sure about the black bakelite but only because I don't know how to test the black portion to verify it or not. I know bakelite was highly used during the 40s though so I'm going by what the dealer stated it to be.
The inside diameter is 2.25 inches side to side by just over 1.75 inches front to back. It is hinged at the back and opens by pulling apart the mid top section. There are clear rhinestones bordering about 2.5 inches on three sides of the opening area. The mid section is the black bakelite and it extends a half inch past each rhinestone area. The bracelet is unsigned.
All rhinestones are present. There are no cracks in the black bakelite. The gold tone medal has some age appropriate very slight scratches, but nothing that stands out.
Buyer to pay USPS First Class Mail Package delivery charges of $4.95. Delivery is from Arizona.
SHIPPING COST INFO:
I do combine shipping on multiple items purchased as long as all items will safely fit into a single box. However, my web host is not set up to calculate multiple item shipping costs. At checkout, you will be charged full shipping price on each item purchased and I will refund the appropriate amount of overpayment. If you are uncomfortable with that, you can send me an email with your zip code and stating which items you'll be purchasing and I'll calculate the correct combined shipping charges and send you a custom invoice.
Also, every January the postal service increases shipping charges. This year, many price increases were a bit steep with some package categories adding as much as a dollar on to an already high shipping charge. I try to absorb some of the new charges but that's getting harder with each increase.
International shipping charges also took a tremendous leap. International shipping will now depend on the country. Buyer must contact seller for international shipping charges before making a purchase. Seller reserves the right to void any international transactions where contact has not been made prior to purchasing.
All items in my listings come from either estate or garage sales. I do not know if they came from homes where smoking or pets were present. All items are sold in the same condition as when I received them.
