Overview

An informative handbook and alluring dreambook for collectors of plastic bangles, this book is illustrated with both rare and more 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 illustrate thousands of bangles. As older collectible plastics like Bakelite and celluloid are snapped up at ever higher prices, many collectors have turned their attentions to the brighter, more playful, and more affordable plastic pieces of the second half of the 20th century. Bangles have become especially popular but until now the collector of Lucite and other plastic bracelets has had nowhere to go for information about these attractive collectibles. Chapters cover the identification of plastics and other materials, techniques, designers, and manufacturers. Additional chapters treat fakes and knock-offs, and collectible plastics of the future.
