Wild Bakelite Round Up of 2014





At the start of 2014, I decided it would be a fun experiment to keep a record of all the bakelite I found while I was out treasure hunting.  One of the things that can really hinder a bakelite collector is how expensive it can be.  And, while this is true for much of what you find for sale online and at antique shows, it is possible to find bakelite out in the wild and thus, at much cheaper prices.  The majority of what I came across this year was nothing too fancy, but I did come away with 13 bracelets and 2 pairs of earrings.*




The thrift stores were good to me this year!  I hope I'm not jinxing myself ;)

2014 was the year of green bakelite, finding five different bracelets in varying shades and sizes.  My best finds have to be the purple marbled hoop earrings and the yellow carved painted one - I bought it on a whim that it would actually test positive at home.  I'm not too good with the rub and sniff test in stores, so I rely on the weight and feel, along with the clunk test.




I always thought you'd find a lot more bakelite at estate sales than I've found to be true around these parts.  I really can't put my finger on why that is.  Regardless, some of this year's fancier finds were acquired at estate sales.  

My first rhinestone piece! And by far, the best find - the chunky striped laminated bracelet.  This one has already gotten a ton of wear since I found it over the summer.  *I also found a pair of carved apple juice earrings at the last sale I went to for 2014, but no photo yet  :(


Although this next bracelet was found in an antique mall, which I don't really consider to be the wild (aka thrift stores, estate sales, garage sales, etc) I couldn't do a bakelite round up without including it. I have long sought after a true end of the day bakelite bracelet ever since discovering one while flipping through a bakelite book several years ago.  They seem to be some of rarest pieces of bakelite, so you can image my surprise when I spotted this lone bracelet in a case full of nothing but rhinestone jewelry.  This might go down as one of my best finds yet!


Did you find any bakelite in the wild this past year?  I'd love to see!
