WWII Bakelite Jewelry
Love and Victory
Deville Engeran. With traditional metals reserved for the production of Allied war supplies, Bakelite, an early plastic, became a popular substitute for making jewelry and other goods. This volume shows how Bakelite jewelry - from sweetheart pins to pieces with reticulating, movable parts - crafted to express solidarity, loss, patriotism, and love, tells the story of a country and its allies that worked together to restore world peace. 112 pages, 175 color photographs, 9"x 8", hardcover.
