This rare Belle Kogan elongated stretch dot bracelet dates from the 1930-40s. It is 5/8" wide with a 2.5" interior diameter and weighs 19 grams. The bracelet is a solid jet black color with two butterscotch dots that are stretched around each side of the bracelet.
Belle Kogan was an industrial designer based in New York who did a variety of designs for household products, but is probably best known for her unique design of Bakelite bracelets. Her bracelet designs featured elongated dots that went from oval shapes to stretched dots (like this one) that often covered an entire side of the bracelet. I included a picture of the various Belle Kogan designed bracelets that were featured on page 44 of "The Bakelite Jewelry Book" by Davidov and Dawes. Over the decades since first made, these bracelets have gotten more scarce and today are almost impossible to find!
This bracelet is in excellent vintage condition with no chips or cracks. The bracelet tested positive for Bakelite using Simichrome polish. (See photo #10) This bracelet dates from the 1930's - 40's and does show some light surface wear you'd expect to see on a bracelet nearly 100 years old!
