This listing is for ONE Bakelite Style One of a Kind Original creation Resin Bangle made by POLO.
Measurements are 1 and 5/16 inches wide, Opening is a little larger than standard at 2 5/8 inches.
Handmade by Polo, Beautiful design, However this is a dark bangle, you can see in the light that this bangle was cast from a deep violet resin, with Polo's famous dots. This bangle has some scratches and wear, it was one of the pieces remaining unpolished in his estate when he passed. I purchased as many pieces in any condition as his work is so popular here in Florida. Price reflects the condition.
POLO is also the maker of the Fabulous Hand Cast Doggies I have up for adoption/sale in my shop.
POLO was a contemporary artist who worked all over South Florida.
POLO used stickers to sign his name on his bangles, most have lost their original stickers and are unsigned. Please view photos carefully as they are part of the description.
Going back in time...
June 26, 2014 - I received some sad news.
Polo the Florida Artist who created the bracelets and these doggies passed away 3 months ago. I spoke with his wife today, she has told me his wish was that the molds he used to cast the doggies with would be broken. So these are now limited editions she said. I have purchased all the remainder of his stock, even the unfinished pieces and have them polished and set the stones myself. My heart is broken, he was much too young his passing was unexpected, due to complications with his diabetes. All product photos are of the actual item.
