bullet  Philite, Bakelite Sputnik hooks, four in the set

go to the beginning of category: Hooks
Philite (Bakelite) Sputnik hooks, four in the set From the Google web - ``... Philips was the first factory in the Netherlands to process Bakelite. It started in 1923, with hand presses, to produce Bakelite components for radios and Electrical engineering. Because the name Bakelite was a protected trade mark of the Bakelite Corporation, Philips could not call its products Bakelite. For this reason the Philips patent department introduced on 16 May 1930 the officially registered trade mark `Philite`...`` so, are they or aren't they? Whatever they are made from they were probably manufactured in the late 50s to commemorate the launch and first earth orbit by Sputnik I. They are in pretty good condition for their age with a few small cracks where the colour joins the black. This `character` does not in any way affect their usage or structural integrity and the colours are firmly attached to the black. We have attempted to show the most significant cracking in the images below. As found apart from a really good clean. A most unusual and scarce set.
