Description - Plastic Bangles by Lyn Tortoriello

An alluring dreambook and informative handbook for collectors of plastic bangle bracelets, illustrated with rare and common pieces in a profusion of colors and styles. Gorgeous spreads arranged by designs and techniques introduce the reader to the unexpected riches of this collecting field. 415 color photos showcase thousands of bangles. Today, when Bakelite and celluloid are snapped up at ever higher prices, many collectors turn to brighter, more playful, and more affordable plastic jewelry from the second half of the 20th century. Until now, collectors of Lucite and other plastic bangles had no information about these attractive collectibles. Chapters cover the identification of plastics, techniques, designers, manufacturers, fakes and knock-offs, and collectible plastics of the future. All have current market value ranges.
