A delightful and original Art Deco Necklace by Jakob Bengel with Black and White Galalith
1930s

The Jakob Bengel factory in Idar-Oberstein, Germany was abandoned in the Second World War and rediscovered in 2001. It is now a museum. Galalith was a patented alternative to Bakelite. Production of jewellery is said to have ceased in 1938 when all supplies of Galalith were required for use in the cockpits of Luftwaffe planes on account of its fire-retardant quality There are two books published on these Modernist, Bauhaus-inspired, designs.
