Fantastic Plastic: Online Museum of Good Design Plastic Finds Part Uno

Aside from only melmac, I'd like to touch on plastic for a bit.  There's something special about the design of plastic. Look at the photos and see if you think this is museum worthy design!

  1. Thanks lots for featuring my vintage sequins

  2. Ira could you talk a little about how to clean melmac/texasware? I have a set of those canisters similar to the ones above and I bought them from a resale shop. They had stickers and marker all over them. My husband suggested goof off. Big mistake, I wiped the word Coffee right off the front of the canister. Bummer!
