Ways to Test Bakelite for Authenticity By Pamela Wiggins
agreed about testing when one is shopping - there are those testing pads - never used them. having specialized in vintage bakelite for over 30 years, when we started there were not the tests that there are today - 409 and simichrome - we relied on the no seam rule and the fact that bakelite is heavier than other plastics. we like the old fashioned hot water test, but again - hard to do that when shopping!
