Bakelite Collection at Auction

I love the look, feel and smell of the early plastic called Bakelite. The colors become more muted and deeper with age. It has a very organic quality. As collectibles go, many of the lots in this Bonham's auction are quite reasonable - starting at an auction estimate low of $100.

Property from the Collection of Susan Kelner Freeman, including Bakelite Jewelry
