"PLASTIC CARVING DESIGNS"
1947


From

The HOME CRAFTSMAN
The Magazine for the Practical Homeowner
March-April 1947
Reverse Carving
 

 

The HOME CRAFTSMAN March-April, 1947
  "Flower forms for internal carving in plastics."
by Harry Zeback

 "Before starting an internal carving, polish one or more edges of the clear plastic so you can see how deep you are carving. Outline the design... press gently using a tapered drill... avoid cutting one flower form into another."

   Each flower is formed by carving at various angles and shapes, and to different depths.

   The rose seems the most challenging to master. "Flowers may be left natural or colored with plastic dyes, tempera colors, oil paints or lacquers... cavities may be filled with plaster of Paris if desired."

 

Carved Bakelite, Lucite and plastic jewelry and was made in home workshops and high school shop classes as well as being done professionally. While it was most popular in the 1940's-1950's, there are carvers who still do this kind of work today, such as Ron & Ester Shultz. Examples of this kind of intricate jewelry is shown below.

 

 

  LUCITE reverse carved and painted desk ornament. Although the flower looks almost real, it is not. Nothing is embedded into the Lucite but rather, it is carved and panted from the reverse, giving a realistic appearance from the front.   View   View    #B23229

PLEASE NOTE: Regretfully, it is no longer possible to respond to individual questions regarding jewelry history, identification or value, or to offer written or verbal appraisals or opinions. The demand for this kind of information is absolutely too overwhelming for one dealer to fill. 
I love jewelry, but appraising and selling are two entirely different businesses, and I choose selling and research as my business.

Instead, articles are added on a regular basis to JEWEL CHAT on line Magazine, a wonderful reference for  information on many makers and styles of vintage jewelry.
