Bakelite Scottie Dog Cutlery, 1930s

A cute cutlery set for babies, made of cast phenolic resin, aka Bakelite or Catalin. The resin was cast as a stock rod a few inches long, with a Scottie profile. Makers would just slice the rods, finish them and add the hardware. The same stock material could be used for toys, jewelry, curios and many other applications.

They are about 10cm long.
