Green Bakelite Set Of 18 Forks, Teaspoons & Table Spoons For 6 Flatware Wwii For Sale
Green Bakelite Flatware Set
This isa set of 18 bakelite flatware pieces. There are 6 large spoons, 6 teaspoons and 6 forks. Notice in the pictures below that the green handles are darkercloserto thesteel,they go from an emerald green to a green with a brownish tint. I think that is how far inside the steel shank goes andit isshowing a shadow of the steel through the bakelite.
What is neat about this set is that it must have beenmade during WWII because it comes with a note that reads: "Due to Government Regulations, based on the scarcity of materials and the utility value of the article, further manufacture of butter knives and sugar shells has been prohibited. For this reason these two items have been omitted from this set."
Instead of butter knives, steak knives were included in the set, unfortunately, they hadcarbon steel blades which weren't taken care of properly and rusted badly.I will include them since shipping will cost the same with or without them.Maybe someone will want them for thebakelite only?
There are minor scratches from use, but the set is in pretty nice condition for its age. One tea spoon has a flat area on the edge, see a close up photo below.
Largespoons (soup spoons? table spoons?):
One table spoon has a slight flat spot on the edge (left in the picture):
These knives are being included, but are in poor condition, the carbon steel blades were allowed to rust.
