1960’s Multi-Color Bakelite Rag Micarta over Titanium Ring

This piece of material was discovered in Europe where over a century earlier, a chemist named Leo Baekeland had been busy inventing something he called Bakelite. In this case, Bakelite resins and multi-colored cloth fibers were used as strengthening filler during the compression molding manufacturing process. The result is what has become known by many as "Rag Micarta". The colors in this ring will darken and patina over time which is another an indication of the vintage nature of the material. It sits over a satin finished titanium core.
