Antique CHERRY AMBER BAKELITE Umbrella Handle Faturan 82g
This cherry amber bakelite handle came off an antique umbrella. The handle measures 4 1/2 inches long, the wide end measures 1 3/8 inch across. Some of the wood stick remains inside the top - I tried to get as much of that out as I could - to give an accurate weight. I also tried, unsuccessfully, to take the brass piece off. Total weight is 82 grams.

This handle tested positive for Bakelite with Simichrome and the hot water test. It has a strong bakelite smell when rubbed. The color is deep cherry red and is not marbled. I took photos of it with the sun behind it - to show that it is semi-transparent - allowing some light to shine through but still making a shadow.
