Lucite itself was actually invented by the Chemists of the Dupont Company in 1931 during the Art Deco Period. Lucite and Bakelite were stronger plastics than previous ones and were more practical and less costly for the making of war supplies during WWII. After the War, Lucite and Bakelite were popular for the making of Jewelry and Handbags. Today Vintage Lucite Jewelry has become as sought after as much as Vintage Bakelite Jewelry.
