One of the most memorable materials of the last century is Bakelite. Because it is heat resistant, companies used it to create electronics, but thanks to its mod, retro appearance, consumers also enjoyed its use in colourful plastic dishes and jewellery.


A true collector’s item today, nostalgic buyers snatch up everything from buttons to bracelets produced from the 1920s to the 1950s, when Bakelite was at its most popular. Enjoy an integral part of the Art Deco era by adding Bakelite items to your home.
