Casein was an early plastic made from milk protein invented in Germany in 1900, and was first introduced at the Paris Universal Exhibition in the year 1900. Casein plastic could not be moulded like Bakelite, but had to be cut or carved from rods or sheets. It was beautifully glossy and could be polished to a long-lasting silky lustre. It was used for jewelry, but was also laminated in layers to form cameos, to make fountain pen cases, knitting needles, and especially for buckles and buttons.
