Bakelite spoon manufactured by Tak Shing Factory from Hong Kong.

This spoon is rare because the whole spoon was made by bakelite.

Bakelite is a mixed substance that can bear heat and pressure. Since it was invented in 1906, it became a popular material. It was often used for electricity switches and the handles of cooking utensils.

約60年代製電木匙羹,由香港勝德機器廠生產.

電木是一種耐熱且堅固的混合塑料,於20世紀初被研發出來之後,成為當時極受歡迎的物料.人們以電木製成燈頭、電源開關、煮食用具的手柄,甚至是時髦的消費品.

很多金屬製的舊餐具會配上電木製手柄,而整支由電木所製的匙羹,則是比較少見的例子.
