Galalith, Bakelite, & Plastics - Page 1

Galalith, a milk protien plastic was produced in a rainbow of brilliant colors and marbling patterns. It was used in France and Germany from the 20's to the 40's. Once synthetic plastics were invented the production of Galalith ceased. Our jewelry is designed by contemporary designers from France & Belgium using vintage galalith .
