Plastics and rubbers form a significant part of our cultural heritage. They are found not only in art, historic and technological collections, they are also among the ethnographic materials of the twentieth century. Objects made from these materials range in diversity from radios, clocks, fountain pens, jewelry and hair accessories, to plastic robots and dolls, and all are becoming increasingly collectible.
