Product Description:

Made in the late 1950s by Cutwell Bavaria, this Mid Century burnt-orange Bakelite pencil sharpener is a fun find for any home or work office.

For those unfamiliar with Bakelite, it is one of the first plastics made from synthetic components. Bakelite was used for its electrical nonconductivity and heat-resistant properties in electrical insulators, radio and telephone casings, and such diverse products as kitchenware, jewelry, pipe stems, and children's toys. In 1993. Bakelite was designated a National Historic Chemical Landmark by the American Chemical Society in recognition of its significance as the world's first synthetic plastic. The "retro" appeal of old Bakelite products and labor-intensive manufacturing has made them collectible in recent years.

If you collect Bakelite items, or if you simply want to add a bit of “vintage” to your home or work office, then don’t let this wonderful, little pencil sharpener pass you by!
