Celluloid has got to be one of my top favourite materials from our Bygone Era, and an excellent example of why to collect vintage jewelry.
A wide range of forms and designs of jewelry are available from carved bangle bracelets through to delicate celluloid necklaces, brooches
This fabulous tomato red and cream colored carved celluloid bangle bracelet is bright and fun!

An unusual pin - Forbidden Fruit is the name given to the vintage jewelry collection of figural fruit pins made in Austria in the 1950s. This beautiful bunch of grapes is cream celluloid embedded with really sparkly brown rhinestones. All stones are intact and original. The stem and leaves are gold plated metal, the leaves have enameled or painted green accents. Some of the enamel has worn away a little in spots but does not detract from the look or beauty. With original pin back, secure with safety catch. Featured in Anne Pittman's "Inside the Jewelry Box" book. The pin in the book is missing a leaf. The one I'm offering one fully intact!
Size: 1 7/8" long x 1 3/8" wide and very dimensional at 3/4" deep
Condition: Overall excellent - very good vintage condition

Art Deco Celluloid and Metal Belt Buckle
This classic 1920s piece is pure art deco design. Chrome silver linear double fan shaped accented with a geometric black and white center piece element made of some early thermo plastic, most likely celluloid. On the metal areas on either side of the celluloid center piece are a row of shiny silver metal balls.
This buckle could be the perfect accent added to a belt or a closure for a sweater, cape of jacket. This piece could also possibly be converted into a brooch or pendant.
