Top Customer Reviews

By A Customer on April 8, 2000
Format: Hardcover
This is a beautiful book! Vibrant color photos of some of the most classic bakelite jewelry ever made. Also some great, unusual things such as school pencils and charms that are rarely seen. Unfortunately, most of us who buy books like these are not only interested in the photos and descriptions but are very much interested in the price/value guides. The value guide in this book is way too non-specific. It gives price ranges for entire pages (or double spread of pages) without giving estimates for individual items or even groups of items. An example: pages 102 and 103, $600 to $1100. Not the bangles on page 102 and the pins on page 102 - just PAGE 102. For someone looking for a beautiful bakelite jewelry "wishbook", this is it! However, if you're looking for an updated book with a usuable price guide this book falls short.

Great history of bakelite and other plastic materials. Would have liked a little more info about the dating of the pieces. Still, a pleasure to look at and own.

It's got some beautiful items, for sure, but I can't imagine it being someone's favorite book. I do like it, however.
