1930s Czech Bakelite Science Classroom Crystal Models

$495per item

About

Crystal models from Czechia, circa 1930, made from Bakelite, an early synthetic plastic. Originally used in science classrooms, each depicts a different crystal structure. The bakelite is a deep black color; the edges of the shapes are delineated with sharp white outlines. Once an educational device, the geometrical elegance of these forms makes a strong aesthetic impact. An enigmatic and sophisticated accent. Please specify preferred shape, size and quantity.
