Bakelite is a material developed in the early 20th century and was one of the first commercial uses of plastic. It's high melting point and low conductivity made it perfect for us in the electrical industry.
Soon after its production, Bakelight light switches were produced and have since become an iconic vintage style. Along with the famous Bakelite telephones, light fittings were the second most popular application of Bakelite material.
