Vintage Lucite Flat back Cabs Designer Quality C' 1960's
These rare and stunning vintage resin cabs were part of a collection that I was lucky enough to purchase from a retired craftsman who worked in around London in the 60's to the 90's. They were used to create stunning pieces for Designer collections.
They are oval and measure 18x13mm. I have a stunning variety of rich colours.
Also available in a rectangle shape which measures 16x11mm in fabulous variety of colours.
Early plastics were developed at the begining of the century. By the 60's the advancement in technology made new plastics available.
Celebrities were often seen wearing designs with the new materials.
Resin Vinyl and perspex could be mass produced. These materials allowed new popular colours to emerge and shine. Designers seized an opportunity to produce new designs at affordable prices.
These are available in a pack of 8 and have unlimited applications in craft and design. They have flat backs with a small hole sunk into the back making it perfect to add an eyelet or button shank. It is approx 7mm. Their tops are domed and iridescent with some looking smoother than others.
Please note that the shade can vary within each colour. Currently listed in Redcurrant and Carolina Blue and other colours will be added shortly.
