Bakelite was an early form of hard, brittle thermosetting plastic, used in camera making from the 1930s to the 1960s. Many products were made from this material - for example radios, electrical fittings, kitchen utensils - and it was capable of producing complex flowing shapes popular from the art-deco era. The word "Bakelite" was originally a trade-name, it is also known as "phenolic".
