It all started 30 years ago when I saw my friend's picnic basket full of red bakelite handle cutlery and old plates and cups - and the tablecloth. My first piece was a red corkscrew (I broke that about 10 yrs ago) and here and there a knife, fork or spoon which I displayed on my magnetic knife board in this 1920's kitchen. Friends saw it and added a few items AND a collection started....

2 cake cutters, 1 spatula, ladle and bottle opener, 11 miscellaneous knives from yellow, brown, red & green, 8 corn holders, 2 fondu? picks, and 37 beautiful matched pieces that probably were white.

3rd pic show a red recipe box - 60's? marked Orange Empire Stores pat pend. Not bakelite but it's wonderful - brittle - if it dropped would break.

4th pic features my green items and another 60's? 2 pc napkin holder? marked Quality Molding Co., Chicago, ILL USA 801 Also brittle but a little tougher than the recipe box.

Any thoughts? Thank you!
