Fresh Finds & New Faves...Still More Beautiful Bakelite

Some more great bakelite to show you all today.

These babies are all going to the shop....as if you wouldn't guess that already!


Sue picked up this fabulous table just recently. Lucky it wasn't me who found it, or it wouldn't be going anywhere!


As you can see, the serving plates all swing around, and the colours are classic 50s.

Stylish green bakelite clock, by the English maker Smiths.






Bakelite machine age lamp and in-tray. All our lamps and clocks have been electrically tested and are guaranteed to be in working order.



Cadbury Bourn-Vita bakelite lidded mug. These are now highly collectable, they appeal to those interested in collecting promotional & advertising items, as well as bakelite and kitchenalia collectables.

'Rocket' bakelite salt and pepper set, these were produced in a variety of colours and unscrew around the middle.



Bakelite hot water bottle, and yes, it works perfectly. This would date to the 1930s or 40s and is in brilliant condition.

Gee!! And here I have virtually NO Bakelite!

Don't you love the smell of it? I do. Except when I was a kid and most electrical plugs were made out if it, and you smelled it burning because you had too many amps plugged into the wall socket lol

Lovely! Do these all make their way over to your etsy shop, or is that one reserved for clothing and sewing patterns?

Kitty said...

Emmi, all these items are for my B&M shop only, which we're opening on Feb 18 at Mt Tamborine. I only put a few fashion items in my etsy shop.

These are all amazing! Why can't I ever find things like this when I'm out hunting? My favorite, I think, is the Cadbury mug with the sly smile...

Kitty said...

Susan, remember that vintage is a full-time job for both Sue & me. We hunt VERY hard to find what we do.
