According to the Plastic Pioneers Newsletter 2013, in the 40’s and 50’s there were ten companies producing Bakelite or more correctly thermoset domestic ware. They were ‘Nally’, ‘Eon’, ‘Helix’, ‘Sellex’, ‘Nylex’, ‘Iplex’, (names with an ‘ex’ at the end were seen as modern) ‘Tilley’, ‘Bristilite’ and ‘Duperite’ (the ending evoking ‘Bakelite’), ‘ACI’ also had Garnite. There were other Australian companies producing other types of plastic as well. Nally Ware created by ‘Nally Ltd’ was born in Sydney in 1923 when Nat Fienberg and Wally Wakeham imported Condensite to make more reliable timers for the T-Model Ford. It started in the 1920s and used a unique process to create a Bakelite that could be moulded into a variety of shapes. By the 1930s ‘Nally’ soon began moulding other items including a range of Bakelite kitchen ware. ‘Nally Ware’ cannister sets were a very big thing in homes in Australia from the 40s-60s. The ‘Royal Nally Ware’ range in mottled Bakelite included a teapot, cups & saucers, coffee mugs, lidded bowls, trays and water cups. The regular range included round (‘Nally’) and squared Bakelite canisters (‘Nally Ware’), bread bins, screw top spice jars, egg cups, tennis plates, cups and saucers, coffee cans and saucers. During the 1960s the plastics range extended to include biscuit barrels, cup & plate sets, and ‘modern’ squared canisters. Has a very slight wear from Age, Use and Storage.
