Learn More About Ivorine

Ivorine is a name often given to celluloid. Celluloid was invented in 1862 and is generally regarded to be the first thermoplastic. It was useful for creating less costly jewellery, jewellery boxes, hair accessories and many items that would earlier have been manufactured from ivory, horn or other expensive animal products. It was often referred to as "Ivorine" or "French Ivory". It was also used for dressing table sets, dolls, picture frames, charms, hat pins, buttons, buckles, stringed instrument parts, fountain pens, cutlery handles and kitchen items.

Vintage and antique items made in celluloid are collectible today and increasingly rare in good condition. Celluloid is still used today for the production of table tennis balls and guitar picks.

Originally intended for use with a fruit or dessert course, this set is also ideal for appetizers, salads, a light lunch, even breakfast - any time the proportions of a dinner knife and fork are too large for the course or meal being served.  We are certain it will be a wonderful addition to your table.
