It is interesting in finding this Vintage Bakelite Letter Writing Set, exploring “bakelite” with stationery letter writing items today. While my interest was in researching a costume necklace it piqued my interest over to letter writing sets!
“Bakelite … is the first plastic made from synthetic components.” – Wikipedia
“Beautiful writing set made in France in the 50s.
The original wooden case includes: a pen holder and a pen, a propelling pencil, a stamp, a letter opener, a pen and leads case and a pencil sharpener.
The handles are made of red bakelite…
Very good vintage condition, just the propelling pencil has got a fine crack, …
Case’s dimensions: 23 cm x 11 cm, thickness: 2,5 cm”
In addition, I’m seeing vintage bakelite letter openers too. Perhaps you have items made out of bakelite already – if so have fun taking inventory of it!
As we wrap up, this has been a really fast-paced week. Join me tomorrow as we greet the last Friday in July 2018!
