Bakelite 'Collapsable' travel beaker


This vintage bakelite beaker was produced for use when travelling. The beaker is in two sections that 'telescope' down so that they fit in the outer case. It is a very neat idea and it does hold liquids. It is in a lovely rich red/brown bakelite colour.

There are no maker's marks, either on the outer case or on the beaker itself. It is difficult to put an age on this but I would imagine that it is from the 1940's.

The beaker is 65mm diameter at the top and stands 80mm high, the case is 65mm in diameter and 45mm high. It has been used and so there are slight signs of wear on the base but otherwise it is in good condition.

Price 12.50.
