These are a fantastic set of 3 art deco Bakelite animal napkin rings, a Scottie dog, squirrel and duck, country of origin unknown circa 1930’s.
Wonderful designs, simple stylised forms with holes in the middles for holding a rolled napkin. The shapes are so reminiscent of the art deco era. All in vibrant colours, the squirrel and Scottie dog in a buterscotch orange with very faint marbling, the duck is in a dark green with faint yellow marbling. All have painted on eyes.
All tested with Simichrome polish as being genuine Bakelite.
Would make a fantastic addition to any Bakelite collection and would complement any art deco, modernist, 1930’s, 1940’s, retro, vintage or contemporary styled interior or table.
All in great condition, the painted eyes are rubbed off on a couple of sides, light surface wear and a few tiny nibbles here and there, nothing to detract from the great overall look on display.
Each measuring approx 7 x 6 x 1.5cm / 2.75 x 2.5 x 0.75in.
