5 Pairs Vintage Cherry Red Bakelite Pierced Post Earrings – This is a group of tested and guaranteed bakelite earrings in cherry red color and large 1.18″ size. They are from the 1970s to 1980s and have a lacquer finish. So, in order to test them properly we cut one extra earring and were able to smell the burnt electronic smell associated with bakelite. We also simichrome tested the inside. Additionally, the earring charred but did not melt when placed over fire. They are deep cherry red color, much truer red than the photo could capture. Unknown if they were ever drilled. They have strong and securely glued backs with silverplated covers and posts and stainless butterfly catches. Any glue marks you may see in the enlarged photos are not eye noticeable when the earrings are worn on the ear. All are in excellent, condition. Old store stock from an establishment in business from the 1960s to 2005 and were stored away for decades. Lovely group of 10 pieces of vintage bakelite for you and yours! They are very large colorful and showy!
